Duke of Edinburgh

Duke of EdinburghDuke of EdinburghThe Duke of Edinburgh Award has been running at Thurston for many years now and continues to be as successful as ever. Students can start the Bronze Award in Year 10 where they complete four different sections over the course of a year.  Each student is responsible for organising and completing their Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections.  Training for the Expedition section takes place in regular after school meetings and over the course of a long weekend in March.  The practice and qualifying expeditions take place later in the year in the Suffolk area where students are self-sufficient for two days and one night.  Further information about Duke of Edinburgh Award can be obtained from www.dofe.org or by contacting Mr D Pipe or Mr T Germany at the College.
