Year 8 DofE Information Event
Year 8 are invited to an event to find out more about doing the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award in year 9 – Wednesday 8 June 8:45am in the library.
A life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers – The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life.
There are four sections to complete at Bronze and Silver level. They involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition.
At Medina we run an after school session fortnightly where students get help in organising the activities they will do in their own time, as well as undertaking the expedition training. We also go on day hikes and practice expeditions throughout the year. However, students do not need to be Bear Grylls to achieve the award. In fact it is open to all backgrounds and abilities and aims to be inclusive.
