Marshmallows, and the Duke of Edinburgh Award

Despite the weather having been against us for what feels like the entire year, Beverley Grammar School’s first Duke of Edinburgh Award group embarked upon their assessed Bronze expedition last weekend.

Although a little on the chilly side, the sky stayed dry and all participants successfully passed the expedition phase of their award. Tents stayed pegged into the ground all night (despite the best efforts of a mysterious peg lifter!) and marshmallows were toasted by the bagful (thanks to Kieran for the endless supply!)

A huge congratulations goes out to all the students who took part in the weekend – they were an absolute credit to themselves and to the school! We look forward to the upcoming expedition presentation evening and ultimately, to seeing all of this year’s participants receive their well-earned Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards.

The first session for the new DofE groups starting this year will be held on Monday 15th October in P1 from 3:45-4:30 and I look forward to seeing as many students there as possible.
