Duke of Edinburgh Awards
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is GO!
Mae Gwobr Dug Caeredin yn MYND!
It is with great excitement that this year sees the return of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Programme to SRG. On Monday Lunchtime, 34 students from Year 10 decided to take the first steps and find out a little more about a scheme that has been running internationally for 60 years.
The DofE Award programme runs at 3 levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold. To gain an award students will complete a physical activity, learn a new skill, volunteer in the community and undertake two expeditions during the next 12 months. With support and guidance from a number of staff the students will be given a wonderful opportunity to experience something different and well respected by employers.
Mr M Hughes, who will be leading the programme explained;
“The award really is special, its gives students something extra, it builds confidence, develops resilience and most of all puts a huge smile on your face! We really are looking forward to running the award again at SRG and seeing our students achieve more than they previously imagined.”
If you are a Year 10 student interested in getting involved in the award scheme then it is not too late. Enrolment forms will be given out on Monday November 14th in a short meeting in T10 at 12.30 lunchtime.
If you are a parent/carer who also feels they could offer help or support to this initiative please contact Mr Hughes here at St Richard Gwyn.
We wish everyone good luck with the award and look forward to seeing their achievements over the year.
