All three were awarded their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, Mr Ian Martin, Head of Outdoor Education, says he's "incredibly proud" of them.
It’s a massive achievement for all three as they’ve had to volunteer for 12 months and go on a day four-day three-night expedition. They also had to undertake a shared activity in a residential setting away from home for five days and four nights.
The Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award is for young people 16+ who can gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, team-working, communication and drive, enhancing CVs for university and job applications.
Laurence commented: “We had a fab day yesterday and thanks to all at St David’s for helping me to achieve Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.”
In the next few weeks Year 12 will start their quest for a coveted Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Also Year 9 have recently been trecking and camping in Snowdonia for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
