Duke of Edinburgh Presentation Evening
On Tuesday night, the Upper Sixth girls gave their Gold Duke of Edinburgh presentation. This was the final part of the expedition section of their Gold Award. They shared their experiences of last summer’s expedition to Albania, where they undertook a 4 day circular walk in the Balkan Mountains which included crossing the border into Montenegro. They impressed an enthralled audience with their adventures and gave advice on what, and what not, to eat while on expedition. There were also number of certificates awarded for Bronze, Silver and Gold Award completions, including ex Prior’s Field Sixth Former Sophie, who returned to collect not only her Gold Duke of Edinburgh brooch, but also her own certification as a qualified Duke of Edinburgh Assessor. We were pleased to welcome Cath Tanton, Operations Officer for the South East Region who helped give out the awards.
