Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards

Nine students in Year 10 have collected their certificates and badges after successfully completing the Bronze Level Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The students, now in Year 10, used their spare time last year to work towards the three areas required, which include Physical, Volunteering and Skills. They had to commit themselves to at least 1 hour a week for 3 months, with one area of their choice lasting an additional 3 months.

Some students worked in St Gemma’s Hospice charity shop to earn their Volunteering element, whilst others supported after school clubs like Junior Drama or the EAL Group.

For the Physical element, students took up a sport, like climbing or rugby, with a number joining local rugby teams such as Roundhegians and Moortown Rugby Club.

In order to complete the award, the students took part in a two-day, 1 night, expedition. They stayed away from home and used their orienteering skills to navigate a walk in the dales.

Well done to Ryhs Applebee, Leuan Applebee, Sam Appleyard-Sanderson, Jasmine Cheema, Ella Coll, Oliver Edmunds, Lucas Kakari, Tom Perry and Ellen Williams.

Many of the students are now working towards the Silver award, which they hope to complete by the end of Year 10.
