A number of Duke of Edinburgh candidates at Rydal Penrhos have successfully completed the first stage of the scheme.
The four pupils are now proud holders of the DofE Bronze, with Tegid Goodman-Jones, Adrian Lewis, Sydney Johnson and Joshua Doyle all coming through a series of assessments and impressed adjudicators to secure the certificate.
They received their accolade from Head of Middle School John Murphy together with a generous round of applause at Rydal Penrhos’ recent end of term Prizegiving prior to the Easter break.
There promises to be even more success to come in the near future, with the Year 9 Bronze hopefuls already on the final stages of the course after an extremely dedicated effort under the guidance of programme co-ordinator Dr Jim Lewis and his staff.
Dr Lewis, said: “Of the Year 9 Bronze participants, several have already completed one or two sections of their Award and have uploaded their assessor’s reports.
“This is an excellent achievement and shows a high level of commitment to the scheme (as well as an ability to act on the advice of the DofE staff); congratulations therefore to Emily Madden, Rebecca Mann, Lili Minton-Roberts, Tasnim Mortuza and Joshua Peevor.
“A special mention is accorded to Thomas Hughes, who, unprecedentedly, has now signed off all three independent sections with just the Expedition to undertake before completing Bronze. Well done to you all.”
