Having spent the last year undertaking a number of activities to gain their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award, DHFS students attended their presentation evening on 5th December, 2018, to formally celebrate their achievements...
The activities they participated in during Year 9 included football, horse riding, helping children, music, martial arts, camping, and hiking.
Now in Year 10, the students' experience was summarised during a presentation delivered by Mrs Hall while parents, carers, staff, and current Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award hopefuls looked on.
Having successfully completed the Skills, Physical, Volunteering and Expedition elements, our students received a certificate, and badge presented by Kellie Ross, Operations Manager for Duke of Edinburgh Central Office.
Following the presentation, students, staff, parents and carers had time to reflect on the hard work, time and effort each student invested in order to receive their award. Remembering the highs and the low they experienced during the last year.
It is hoped that the newly enrolled Bronze participants in Year 9 could draw inspiration from the celebration, and from previous participants knowing that this time next year, it should be them receiving their Award!
