Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award for Alysia Orbell
Alysia Orbell is the latest student from Vandyke to receive her Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award from Buckingham Palace this week. Alysia even had a brief word with the Duke of Edinburgh himself as he walked around the grounds and greeted visitors after the speeches!
Alysia is currently in the middle of her second-year exams at Durham University so it was a flying visit but one she said she will always remember.
All of the DofE team at Vandyke would like to pass on our congratulations to Alysia.
Mrs Green, DofE Manager
