Duke of Edinburgh Award Relaunch
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (commonly abbreviated DofE) is a youth awards programme founded in the United Kingdom in 1956 by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, that has since expanded to 144 nations. The awards recognise adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises modelled on Kurt Hahn's solutions to his "Six Declines of Modern Youth".
The Duke of Edinburgh award scheme is being relaunched this year following long break due to the recent healthcare restrictions. There has been a considerable investment in new equipment which is thanks to the Head Teacher Mrs Neely-Hayes. All participants and volunteer staff will get a t shirt as displayed. The Award will be run during the year 9 academic year, although it is late starting this year again due to the recent restrictions hopefully next year normal service will resume.
