Duke of Edinburgh Update - 18/01/2019

Now that DofE registrations are complete the hard work begins – I am in the process of arranging the training sessions that students need to attend to be able to take part in the expedition. Training sessions will run as an enrichment session after school and I expect them to begin mid-February.

The proposed dates for expeditions in 2019 are:

  • Bronze:     Cheddar: 2nd – 3rd June OR 9th – 10th June
  • Silver:        Forest of Dean: 20th – 22nd June AND Brecon Beacons: 27th June – 29th June
  • Gold:          Snowdonia: 6th – 12th July AND  a date in September 2019 to be confirmed

The next payments for Bronze, Silver and Gold award participants will be due on 31st January 2019 – there will be more information to follow.
