Duke of Edinburgh’s Silver Award Presentation Ceremony 2022

Pupils received their DofE Silver Award certificate and badge at a ceremony held at the Beaton Road campus just before the half term holiday.

The DofE National Director, Helen Anderson, presented the awards to 61 pupils. She congratulated the recipients, especially as they completed all four sections, at least in part, during the pandemic. They were also required to sleep separately in single person tents and adhere to the Covid restrictions at that time.

Pupils demonstrated resilience during this difficult period and perseverance to complete their award which for many took longer to complete than anticipated due to these circumstances.

In addition, pupils were creative in finding alternative ‘Covid friendly’ activities in order to complete the physical, skills and volunteering sections of the award.

Helen also thanked the staff and volunteers at the school who facilitated a compact expedition period in June 2021 with double the ‘usual’ expeditions due to the lockdown period in June 2020.

Well done to our senior pupils for achieving this award.
