Duke of Edinburgh award
Welcome to the Duke of Edinburgh informational page for participants and parents of Bellerive pupils.
The Duke of Edinburgh is a successful and popular award at Bellerive with over 150 pupils already accredited in either Bronze, Silver or Gold awards in the last 4 years. The award is valued by the school and employers alike, due to the time, commitment and effort it takes to complete, setting participants aside from other young people.
Any pupil wishing to complete their Silver or bronze award must speak to Miss Power for further information.
Bronze – Yr 10 participants
All pupils wishing to complete their Bronze Award should have made their £30.00 deposit payment via Parentpay by 31st January 2019. This is a non-refundable deposit should the participant not go on to complete full award. The remaining balance can be paid as instalments up till the end of 26th May 2019 via Parentpay.
All participants will need to have a clear idea of what they are going to be doing for their Skill, Physical and Volunteering sections by the beginning of January 2019. Any participant who is struggling with any section needs to see Miss Power for further support.
All evidence should be recorded regularly on online to show progress and commitment to the course. If no evidence is recorded for all 3 sections then participants will not be eligible to attend the expedition.
