The aim of DofE is to give participants a challenge that encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility for themselves and service to the community. DofE is open to all!
To gain an award, participants must complete four sections: Volunteering, Physical Recreation, Skills, and Expedition (plus an additional Residential Project, if they are going for the Gold Award). Details of all these sections and more are displayed in Miss Caswell’s teaching room (C16). Alternatively, students can visit the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme website on www.dofe.org, or speak to Miss Caswell.
