Duke of Edinburgh Award
Congratulations to the following Year 11 students who have now successfully completed their bronze awards; Alfie Yeaman, Darita Odou, Aaron Martin, Hayley Willis, Avril Loynes, Bradley Low and Rebecca Dallas, and Tommy Lee (ex-student) who has completed his gold award. For anyone else in Year 11 or 12 wanting to complete a silver or bronze award in time for the re-scheduled D of E Celebration Evening now taking place on Wednesday 25th April, there are two more chances to get help and support with uploading the required evidence. These will take place in BS2 3:30 – 5pm on Tuesday 27th March (next Tuesday) and Tuesday 17th April (first Tuesday back after Easter). Students from Year 10 who need help in order to be eligible for further expedition training can also attend these sessions.

Duke of Edinburgh Award Celebration Postponed
Due to circumstances beyond our control, a decision has been made to postpone the Borough D of E celebration event which was due to be held here on Wednesday 28th March, until after the Easter holidays. The event will take place before GCSE exams start, and is likely to be during the first two weeks back. Details are currently being finalised and letters will be sent to all eligible candidates and their families as soon as everything is confirmed. Silver award training sessions starting again next Tuesday! Our early bird training sessions on Tuesday mornings for all those in Year 11 doing silver D of E start again next Tuesday 6th March and continue for the next three weeks. I look forward to seeing you all for breakfast bright and early next Tuesday.

NEW Equipment Loan Contract
To ensure that all the school’s camping equipment is kept in good order, all students and their parents/carers will have to sign up to this new contract before being loaned any more kit this year. A copy of the letter, contract and care of equipment guidance can be downloaded here. Please note that both documents need to be read and understood to fulfil the requirements of the loan contract.
D of E on the school website
We have a very up to date website page on the school website http://www.jrcs-school.org.uk/duke-of-edinburgh
All the information you need about session and expedition dates is there. You can also download useful documents, like trip letters. A big ‘thank-you’ goes out to Terry Dignam of the D of E staff group who does such a great job keeping the site up to date for us.
