Duke of Edinburgh Award

Mr Gubbins with this update on the Duke of Edinburgh Awards:

“Miss Challinor and I are looking to hold an awards evening for all current Bronze and Silver DofE pupils on Thursday 19th October 2017. The evening will be open to all those who have completed their award by the 15th October 2017. It will be an informal occasion but an opportunity to get together and celebrate in the successes of the young people. Details of the evening are still being finalised but all pupils will be informed of the event and a letter will be produced explaining the evening for them to take home. We are working tirelessly to ensure as many pupils as possible complete the award by the deadline however, as ever, any additional support or encouragement parents/guardians can provide will be really appreciated.

Additionally, the current Year 9 DofE award will aim to commence after October half term. In the first instance there will be an assembly informing pupils of the award, a letter to take home to parents/guardians and an initial interest meeting.

We look forward to seeing many of you on Thursday 19th October and hope for another large uptake of the current Year 9 cohort after October half term.”
