At Park Community School, we are committed to providing students in Years 9, 10 and 11 with access to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is a voluntary non-competitive programme of practical, cultural and adventurous activities. It is designed to support the personal and
social development of young people, regardless of gender, background or ability. It offers an individual challenge and encourages young people to undertake exciting, constructive, challenging and enjoyable activities in their free time. What’s more, many organisations such as employers and universities take a good view of the Award and what it says about the person who has achieved it.
Year 11 Students:
There have been four Year 11 students who have completed their Bronze level award since January.
Congratulations go to Carla Keast, Bethan Sharples, Keira Worrall and Kirsty Kingdom.
Year 9 Students:
This year forty-three Year 9 students have signed up for Duke of Edinburgh. Most are aiming to complete the Bronze Level Award within this calendar year.
Over two weekends in June 2019, thirty-seven of them took part in their Expedition around the Hartland peninsula. They were all successful and completed it, despite some testing weather conditions. (lots of sun, wind and rain).
Congratulations to the Year 9 students below, who completed their Bronze Award Expedition – Well Done!
