S3 DOFE Group:
All S3 students wishing to undertake the Duke of Edinburgh Award should scan both QR codes that are on the DOFE Google Classroom and pay the £23 registration fee on Parent Pay. Please note: the registration fee is non-refundable.
Students should have this completed by Friday, 5th November.
All S3 DOFE students having been meeting weekly with Mr Boag and should now know what activities they are undertaking for each of their sections (Physical, Skill and Volunteering). Students should be thinking about an aim (a measurable goal) for each section and speaking with their assessor’s too. Students are unsure what activity to undertake should see Mr Boag ASAP.
Skills Development Scotland (SDS) offers a range of in-school services to support your child from first year onward.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and students who attended the recent S3 DOFE Information Evening.
Please find the presentation and other useful documents below:
If you missed the meeting, students should familiarize themselves with the requirements of the Bronze DOFE Award using the PowerPoint presentation above. They should then attend the next DOFE meeting on Wednesday, 20th Oct at 12.30pm in room 202 (Mr Boag’s room).
Students should also register for DOFE using the QR codes, here. Please ensure you scan BOTH QR codes.
The £23 registration payment will be setup on ParentPay on our return from the October Holidays.
If any student is unsure how to progress with their DOFE Award, then they should speak to Mr Boag ASAP.
All students have access to our new S3 DOFE Google Classroom (GC), and the online meeting will take place using the posted link in this GC.
The main focus of the meeting is to familiarise parents/carers with the requirements of the Bronze DOFE Award, including costs and timescales.
It is imperative that students do not attend this meeting by themselves. Typically, students that are supported at home, and in school, go on to achieve the Bronze DOFE Award. We, therefore, request that students join the meeting accompanied with a parent or carer.
