Duke of Edinburgh Award

Here at HARI we have over 150 students enrolled on the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Bronze award. 

DofE gives students opportunities to experience and explore outdoor places that are on their door steps. Students will learn life skills, how to survive in the outdoors, how to map-read and how to work in a team in order to successfully complete challenges. They will learn how to cook basic meals, keeping themselves safe and healthy in the outdoors. 

In order to complete the award our students will also have to undertake a series of challenges. They are asked to complete three sections in a set period of time. The three sections are Physical, Skill and Volunteering. 

The physical section requires students to take part in an extra-curricular sporting club whether that be in or outside of the academy. This could be anything from joining a Rugby club to doing work-outs from home.

The skill section requires students to learn a new skill. This could be anything from learning how to do calligraphy to learning a new language. 

The volunteering section requires students to volunteer their services in order to support others. This could be something as easy as helping with Year 7 prep club to volunteering for an animal shelter or joining the 'Inspire your Community' or 'Young Enterprise' club at the academy.

Once students have completed these sections in the time period chosen, they will be invited to complete their award by embarking on the expedition section of the process. Students will need to complete a practice expedition and an assessed expedition on two separate weekends. 

To celebrate all their hard work in the new academic year our Year 9 students will be invited to an awards evening held at the academy where they will receive their Bronze DofE award. 

Many of our year 12 students have completed Bronze or Silver awards in earlier years. Our Year 12 students have also therefore been offered the opportunity to carry on their DofE journey by completing their Silver or Gold awards with the academy's support. 

If you have any queries about DofE, please email info@harrisriverside.org.uk and direct your Email to Miss Solley (DofE Co-ordinator) for more information.
