Last month saw Dunbar Grammar’s Duke of Edinburgh Awards Evening.
This celebrated the successes of students who had completed all, or part, of an award level in the last year.
We had 32 students completeing their bronze level, 29 completing their silver award and 15 students completing individual sections towards their Gold Award.
These are fantastic numbers and it was great to celebrate the achievements of all our youngsters.
The Award certificates this year were presented by Mrs Barbara Leslie (who works in the school office but also helps so many students complete their service section with her involvement in the Brownies) and Mrs Christine Bowman (who also works in the office and also helps us on our expeditions).
Special thanks must also go to the students who lead the evening, particularly Lucy Mullen for talking us through a Gold Reseidential experience, Craig Thorburn for his skillful piano playing, Morna Renwick for her talk about playing hockey as her physical recreation, Kirsty Steven for talking about her Volunteering and Jenny MacMillan, Katie Proudfoot, Eilidh McGregor, Finlay Hearn, Connal McLeod, Alistair Brown and Cara Mancey for sharing some of their expedition stories.
