Duke of Edinburgh


An enthusiastic group of S3 pupils are about to embark upon the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.  The programme involves pupils becoming involved in physical and volunteering activities, learning a new skill and taking part in an overnight outdoor expedition.  Pupils choose activities that interest them – some may already be involved in activities which can go towards the award.  This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to acquire attitudes and skills which will enhance their employability opportunities.  In order to achieve this award pupils must demonstrate a positive attitude and a ‘can do’ approach.  These are attributes that underpins success in working life.  The programme will be fun and allow pupils to pick up new experiences, friends and talents that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.  We wish them all good luck on this new challenge.
