Duke of Edinburgh Awards Ceremony

Nearly 200 students received their Bronze and Silver Duke Edinburgh Awards at a ceremony held at Judgemeadow Community College in Evington.

Parents, carers and School Principals from Beauchamp City Sixth Form, Beauchamp College, The Castle Rock School, The Cedars Academy, Humphrey Perkins School, Judgemeadow Community College, Martin High School, The Newbridge School and Sir Jonathan North Girls’ College came to support students who had recently completed their awards.

I enjoyed speaking many parents and carers before the ceremony and then presenting Awards to the students. I am proud that their hard work is recognised and hope many of them go on to take the Gold Award, when they may receive their award at Buckingham Palace. I wish them all every success in the future.

Acquiring the DofE Award – from Bronze to Gold – is dependent on students completing four elements: carrying out voluntary work, completing a physical activity, learning a new skill and undertaking an expedition.

The Lionheart Educational Trust facilitates the Award to allow students to discover new aspirations and qualities beyond the classroom.

Thank you for a brilliant evening.
