Duke of Edinburgh
Girls work towards three levels of awards from Year 9 upwards. In the volunteering section girls help out in the local community e.g. volunteering in charity shops, local animal centres, and youth groups. They also help out in the junior school running a variety of extra curricular clubs and also support in the nursery.
The DofE is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. At the same time, you’ll gather friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
School facilities, resources, transport and teaching staff are utilised for this project.
