Duke of Edinburgh Awards Evening
We held our first Duke of Edinburgh Awards Evening on Wednesday 12th July. It was a wonderful occasion, especially seeing so many of our students achieving and enjoying an awards evening. We had a total of 53 students receiving bronze awards, 14 silver awards and 7 gold awards.
The students were extremely keen to have some input on the evening and three students who received their bronze awards spoke magnificently about their experiences, very heartfelt; Molly Collins, William Fitzsimmons and Marc Kilroy.
Two students who received silver awards played guitar and sang beautifully; Molly Churchill and Lucy McLeod. Finally three of our gold award winners, Laura Hussey, Rachael O’Connor and Matthew Nash, shared their experiences from having achieved all three awards and how working towards their gold award has helped them get into university and their future careers.
Congratulations to all our award winners and many thanks to the DofE team for all their help throughout the year.
