DofE Award

42 Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award students took part in a training walk on Saturday 11th January from Lanlivery to Bodmin College.

The weather was bright and sunny, although conditions were muddy. Map-reading skills were put to the test with each team on separate routes plotted by Mrs Wakeham, our DofE Coordinator.

Students were supported by parents, staff and governors (and Miss Munro’s dog Alfie), who joined the teams for the walk.

This year we’re running the DofE programme on our own as we have so many students interested in the activities; last year we partnered with Bodmin College.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to our adults for giving up a Saturday morning to walk with us.

If you’re in Year 9 and interested in taking part in DofE in 2014-15, see Mrs Wakeham. This is excellent for your CV.
