The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme is offered to all S3 students from the age of 14. The Bronze, Silver and Gold levels are recognised around the world and show real dedication and commitment from the participants. Each level consists of 4 elements – the Physical, Skill and Service must be carried out each week over a period of at least 3 months. The final element is the expedition which involves hiking and camping overnight in the wild – could you survive!? Contact Mrs Proudfoot to find out more.
