Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award encourages young people to take on a challenge to find their true potential. The DofE has been transformational in raising aspirations and developing skills that young people need to be resilient and productive citizens. The DofE award requires a young person to complete a volunteering project, a physical challenge, development of a news skills and an expedition. Students in year 9 and 10 at James Hornsby have the opportunity to complete their Bronze and Silver award.

All nine students were highly committed and showed real grit and determination to complete the practice expedition and the final assessment on one of the hottest days of the year. We are all extremely proud of you and hope that you all return to complete your Silver next year. Mr Thomas, DoE Leader, 2018
