Autumn 2022 DofE news

DofE Award SchemeYear 13

Most of our Year 13 DofE participants are in the final juncture of their Silver DofE award chasing up their assessor reports for their Volunteering, Physical and Skills activities which they have been pursuing over the past 12 months.
Congratulations to the six participants out of 25, who have also completed their Bronze award in Summer 2022 and who will be receiving their award in March 2023 at our presentation evening (date to be confirmed). They are Febin D’Silva, Eloise Evans, Jacob Hyland, Joseph Sykes, Bethany Tebbutt-Ford and Ryan Vincent.

Year 12

A whopping 37 year 12 students have now been enrolled on the Silver Duke of Edinburgh award program for 2022/2023 and we wish them well as they begin their quest to search for and embark upon their chosen Volunteering, Physical and Skills activities. They have all been set up in a Google classroom where all of their resources are posted including their training program. Regular weekly training begins in November and will continue until the practice and qualifying expeditions in the summer term.
All students MUST ensure to get their 12-month sections started ASAP so that they are finished by this time next year and it does not interfere with IB mocks or other pressing deadlines.

It is the world's leading youth achievement award, it gives millions of 14- to 25-year olds the opportunity to push themselves to be the very best they can be. The award was founded in 1965 by HRH Prince Philip.

We were very grateful to have our Chair Of Governors, Dave Roberts, CBE in attendance to present the awards and we also welcomed Edward Gaskin, the DofE Operations Officer for Kent who gave a heartening brief on the DofE award.
