The school recently welcomed the National Director of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, Barry Fisher, to present our sixth year pupils with their Silver Certificates.
Mr Fisher spoke at the S4-6 Assembly, telling stories of his mother, who is a Hutchie FP and his sailing expeditions which include sailing the Atlantic twice and sailing in the Pacific, around The Faroe Islands and Iceland and Vancouver Island.
Mr Fisher went on to explain how grateful he was to be part of the DofE programme, which introduced him to sailing and his incredible experiences.
Hutchesons' is a strong supporter of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and this relationship was strengthened as Mr Fisher met with the Rector, DofE Award Manager, Mr Macleod and Mrs Windows to discuss ways the school can continue to support the award scheme.
Very well done to all of our DofE participants who received a Silver Award on the day.
