Duke of Edingburgh’s Award – Rossmar School
Duke of Ed requires pupils aged 14+ to complete volunteering, skill and physical sections within an allotted time, a practise and an expedition in unknown terrain.
It is a brilliant experience and opportunity for pupils to learn like skills and develop independence. Especially taking responsibility for your own learning and achievements, pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone. Allowing pupils to work together and be outdoors are beneficial for all.
Nine pupils from Rossmar were the first ever to receive their bronze award. This is a brilliant achievement for the young people, their families and the staff that were involved. 2020 Five KS4 pupils have registered for bronze and Nine for silver
KS 4 Bronze Duke Expedition September 2021
A brilliant two days on Bronze Expedition around The Roe Valley Area. Everyone enjoyed the experience and a few showers on the second day didn't dampen spirits.
Well done to the five pupils that have achieved their Bronze award ⭐️
Thank you to Mr Stephen Bogle for assessing the group and the Rossmar staff that supported the group.
Silver Practise Expedition - Woodhall, April 2022
This was the First Rossmar Silver Duke of Ed Group.
The nine pupils that participated were amazing throughout the three days. They enhanced their campcraft skills, walked on various terrains along the North Antrim Coast and slept outdoors in Woodhall's Wilderness Village during extreme weather conditions.
Thank you to Woodhall and espcially Pamela & Phyllis for supporting the group.
Everyone did their best and thoroughly exjoyed the experience.
Well done to the nine pupils and staff that supported the group.
Good-Luck for the Silver Expedition in May 2022
