Duke of Edinburgh Update from Mr Kemp

The current situation has made completing the DofE a significant challenge.  In particular the expedition section, which is now not going to be possible before the end of the year.  I would like to reassure everyone that the DofE Management Team are well aware of the problems we are all facing and wish to provide all the support they can. Please click here for more information.

We are unusual at Radnor House that we begin Bronze in Year 9 and Silver in Year 10 - many schools begin the scheme in Year 10. T his means we have plenty of time as the majority of pupils have already completed their Volunteering, Skill and Physical sections which have been signed off online.

I recommend that wherever possible, pupils continue to complete their sections over the next few weeks, ideally before the summer.  Sections that are not possible at home may be changed at any time.  We will then assess the situation and make plans to complete training and expeditions as soon as possible for the next academic year.  

It is possible to begin Silver as soon as two sections of the Bronze Award have been completed.  Gold cannot be started until the age of 16.  For most pupils this gives plenty of time to complete Bronze and Silver even with this delay.

I am sure both parents and pupils have questions at this time and I would like invite you all to join a Zoom Q and A meeting on the following evenings next week.

Gold - Monday 8 June 4.15pm  All Year 11 Parents and Pupils welcome, even if you know nothing about the DofE, and have not done either of the previous levels

Thank you to all who participated in and helped out with the quiz.  Silly Billy was on great form, the technology held out, and everyone seemed to enjoy the distraction!  Well done to the winning house, Churchill, who gained a whopping 100 dojos and 50 housepoints!  A massive 'big up' to all who made a donation an amazing £1,638 was raised!

Keen to keep you entertained as our social lives remain somewhat curbed, we are excited to share more details on the on-line auction which will be going live on Saturday 13 June .

We have some really super and varied items up for grabs to the highest bidder, from fun garden toys to stunning paintings, unique memorabilia and experiences, useful local services and not to mention some delicious wines to keep you stocked up through the summer! 

We will be sending out a link to the auction, which will be live for 2 weeks with no obligation to bid, although browsing is highly recommended!  All profits will go to our school charities.
