Duke of Edinburgh
- As part of the outdoor and adventurous curriculum, working towards a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award can be chosen as an option.
- Participants have to plan, train for and undertake an expedition, as well as fulfilling 3 other sections – skills, volunteering and physical.
- The training for the expedition includes learning map reading and navigation skills, the Countryside Code, basic expedition first aid and safety, camp craft and outdoor cooking.
Our hard working Duke of Edinburgh Award pupils have been busy working with Ian Meopham, Park Ranger with Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
During the last few weeks, they have collected marine litter from Pen-y-Cwm Bay; planted 53 saplings in Porthgain and cut back unwanted blackthorn.
Well done to our enthusiastic team!
Many of our senior students attend work placements with support in various work establishments throughout the county. At present students are experiencing the workplace at Norman Industries, the Bowlings Riding Stables, Buddies Café, Hatch Cafe, Crymych Leisure Centre.
