S3 DofE Parents & Carer Information Evening – 7th October @ 7pm

To all S3 Duke of Edinburgh students: Our DOFE Parents & Carer Information evening will take place on Thursday, 7th October @  7pm.

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.
