15 Students complete their Bronze DofE Award
Fifteen students from Skipton Academy have recently achieved the prestigious Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE) for their hard work and dedication to the four main sections of the DofE programme.
The DofE programme is divided into four sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. Each section requires the student to put in a certain amount of effort in order to successfully complete the programme.
The Volunteering section of the programme calls for the students to take part in activities with a charitable or community focus. The Physical section of the programme requires the students to take part in an activity that requires physical effort or skill. The Skills section of the programme calls for students to focus on developing a hobby or skill. The Expedition section of the programme required the students to take part in a two-day, overnight journey. The Skipton Academy students chose to take part in a hike in the Yorkshire Dales and camp overnight.
By completing the four sections of the DofE programme, the fifteen Skipton Academy students have proven their dedication and commitment to the programme. They have demonstrated their willingness to take on new challenges and have shown their resilience and determination to complete the programme.
The students were presented with their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award certificates at a special ceremony held at the school. The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award is a prestigious award, and the fifteen Skipton Academy students should be proud of their achievement. The school congratulates them on their success and wishes them luck as they continue with their DofE journey.< Back to all news stories
