Showcase Evening – Wed 20th November

Our annual Showcase Evening will take place this Wednesday 20th November. Parents of pupils in P6 & P7 in our associated primaries have been invited to come along with their child to find out more about life and learning in Barrhead High School.

Parents of our own S1 & S2 pupils are welcome to come, particularly if they missed the event in previous sessions. Pupils are welcome to come and accompany their parents if they are present.

DOFE – S3 Group Only

S3 DOFE Group Only:

All S3 Duke of Edinburgh students need to do two things (please):

 

  1. Can you check your email account (the account in your DOFE account) for a message from eDOFE querying some of your evidence.
  2. Can you check the DOFE Google Classroom as there is more information there to help you complete your DOFE sections.

Any issues with the above, then students should see Mr Boag in school this week.

 

Duke of Edinburgh – (S4 students only)

S4 DOFE Group only:

As of last week, all S4 DOFE students have now undertaken all aspects of The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award, including the DOFE presentations.

Final Big Push:

As of today, I have authorised every piece of evidence that the S4 DOFE group has uploaded, but every student still has some work to do before they will receive their DOFE certificate.

Expedition Section: All S4 DOFE students now need to update their expedition section, adding in the dates of their expeditions and uploading their PowerPoint presentation too.

Volunteering, Skill & Physical Sections: Not all S4 DOFE have completed these sections. It is now for students to check each section has the required number of text uploads, photographs and an assessors report.

Expeditions Payments: Most students paid for their DOFE expeditions back in September, although some students still require to make their payment. This should be done through ParentPay – trip 1 was the 5th&6th Sept, trip 2 was 25th & 26th Sept.

DOFE Certificates:

Once all of the above has been completed, I will authorise any further evidence as soon as I can.  Once all sections have been authorised by me, the student’s DOFE account is then transferred to the DOFE Manager, where a second authorisation process is undertaken.   Once the DOFE Manager is content that all criteria have been met, then certificates are usually sent to the school for distribution to students.

Note: I would urge all S4 DOFE students to have all aspects of their award completed prior to Xmas 2019. Should you delay uploading evidence, then the DOFE Manager is unlikely to authorise your account during camping season (March – October) as most of his time is spent assessing expeditions.

Please contact Mr Boag should there be any difficult with the above.
