Gold and Silver Presentation Evening

Friday evening saw the successful culmination of the Expedition section for our Gold and Silver Duke of Edinburgh teams as they completed their entertaining presentations to staff and parents. Some of our Silver team members had no previous experience of this award scheme. Although they were adamant that they did not want to go onto Gold, they coped very well with the Expedition and showed excellent team work and navigation skills. A number of the Gold candidates had successfully completed their Silver award with us last year and three students are within weeks of completing their other activities and attaining the Gold award before Christmas, making this the earliest completion date so far.

To quote their assessor: “Your students are a credit to the school and obviously their parents, for me it was a pleasure to engage and help them through their D of E Gold expedition...”

Well done to all students and thank-you to Kayden for stepping in to make the teams viable. We look forward to him and TJ completing their Assessed Expedition next year.
