This is a reminder to parents that any money for the cycling expedition must be paid by this Friday, 14th December to have a place in the team. If you have any problems with this please let me know or speak with crew leaders.
I have added the projects to the school DofE website. I’ve not been able to add all of them due to the format of them, click here.
I hope you enjoyed the presentation evening! I will share some photos soon.
Just a reminder that the presentation of awards will be a week today.
It will be held at XP East in the community area.
Please remind students that they need to have everything completed by end of school Wednesday 14th November at the very latest, this is an extension to the original deadline I set.
Can I remind everyone that the presentation evening is on Monday 19th November.
Also a reminder that any outstanding money from expedition costs and de-gunge was meant to be paid by the 18th October. This has been extended to Wednesday 14th November as not all the money has been handed in. In order for students to receive their award at the Presentation evening this money must be handed into the office no later than the 14th. Awards will be withheld to students that have not paid their money in time.
Expedition groups also need to have completed their expedition projects by the 14th November and shared with their crew leaders and me.
Not all students will have completed the full Silver Award by the presentation evening, however all students will receive an award recognising any sections they have completed.
Students need to have each section of their silver programme completed and signed off by the 5th November to receive their Silver certificate & badge at the presentation evening.
All the silver expedition groups need to complete their expedition projects by the 12th November at the latest. This will need to be done in their own time as C21 no longer have Friday DofE sessions.
Groups will then present their final product at the Silver Award presentation evening on Monday 19th November.
Groups can email or come and see me for advice at anytime.
Invites for the presentation evening will be sent out this week.
During de-gunge any equipment that has been lost or damaged on expedition is charged to the group or individual that the item was assigned to.
Naturally some equipment needs replacing due to normal wear & tear and these items are not charged.
Also the canoeing group need to bring in any outstanding money for the hired dry bags and the level 3 canoeing coach.
The cycling group need to bring in the money for hiring of pannier racks.
Any problems with the above please email me about this.
I will be speaking with the students tomorrow in crew and sending a letter home for those concerned.
This jacket was left after de-gunge on Saturday. Please collect it from XP East reception before the end of the week.
The presentation evening was a lovely celebration with students presenting awards to each other by giving a reason why they felt they deserved it. The certificates & pin badges were then presented to students by their crew / DofE leader.
Over 90% of the year group passed their Bronze within the year.
Students that haven’t yet completed the full programme received certificates for the sections that they’ve completed to date.
