Extra-curricular Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

A growing staff team means that the school is looking to offer pupils in S3-S6 the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) at Bronze level.  This is a great opportunity to participate in an internationally recognised award…and will provide pupils with the chance to get involved with their local community.

To gauge the level of interest in the Award, we would ask any pupil interested in participating in the DofE to come along to a meeting in the LRC during Wednesday (5th Sept.) lunchtime to find more about this opportunity.

What can you achieve?  Well, come along and find out!

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition success

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!

Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award success

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.
