Congratulations to Sara Black (S6) and Abby Falconer (S4) who were presented with their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards by Ms Penrose yesterday.
The DofE provided both Sara and Abby with an opportunity to get involved in community projects. Sara did some fundraising on behalf of CHAS raising £209 for the charity, while Abby helped out at the Cat Protection Centre.
The commitment that Sara and Abby had to make to complete the award shouldn’t be underestimated. Well done!
Congratulations to all of the S3 and S4 pupils on passing their Qualifying Expedition out on the Lomonds over the weekend. All three groups successfully managed a 24km hike over two days, with a night of camping, in challenging weather conditions.
A big ‘thank you’ to the staff – Miss Doig, Mr McNicol, Ms Bateman & Mrs Kidson – and the group’s Assessor, Donald Jenks.
Well done to everyone!
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award staff and pupils would like to thank the Former Pupils’ Association for donating money to enable the group to purchase sleeping bags and liners.
The much needed equipment will be available for use by pupils undertaking the award at Bronze and Silver level.
A huge ‘well done’ to Finlay MacDonald (S5) and Megan Easson (S5) who were both awarded their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award by Mrs Smart this afternoon.
Megan and Finlay have spent time completing activities for their volunteering, skills and physical sections over the last two years in between exams. A tough expedition up at Loch Ordie, Dunkeld rounded off the work Finlay and Megan have do to enable them to gain their final award.
A great achievement by both pupils.
