Congratulations to Year 13 student Ciara who is the first student in the history of St. Bede’s to achieve the Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards!
Achieving the Gold award is no mean feat, whereby Ciara had to successfully navigate a 4 day expedition in the Brecon Beacons, complete a year of volunteering, learn a new skill and record a year’s worth of physical exercise. The Gold award also requires a residential section, for which Ciara completed a week long conservation and ranger course in Wellington. Ciara is now awaiting her invitation to either St. James’s Palace or Buckingham Palace Garden to receive her award.
If you are a year 11 student thinking about the Gold DofE Award and are planning on continuing your studies with us within the Areté Sixth Form, please see Mr Sutton for more information.
