Duke of Edinburgh’s Award presentation evening

DofE Presentation Evening_1

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme is thriving at Harton and we were delighted that so many students and proud families could attend the presentation evening on the 4th December. We currently have over 200 students actively involved in the award at bronze, silver and gold level and over 80 certificates were awarded for students that have achieved the award in the with 60 of these at bronze level and 20 at silver. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award was established in 1956 and is universally regarded as fantastic development programme for young people to develop key skills that will set them up in life such as communication, teamwork, decision making, co-operation and leadership. It is highly regarded by all major companies and businesses and really helps young people stand out in a competitive world.

Last night we were also incredibly proud to present the very first Jack Burden STAR Awards for students that demonstrated the following traits and stood out to the staff involved in the award: Selfless, Team player, Attitude, Resilience.

The success of the Award is down to the staff that give their time so generously to ensure the students have this wonderful opportunity and a huge amount of work goes in to making it happen.

Well done to all the students on achieving the award.

We are very proud of your achievements in all four sections of the award.

The D of E Team
