Duke of Edinburgh Awards
A number of our students took part in the Final Expeditions for the Silver Award in the Peak District and the Gold Award in the Yorkshire Dales at the end of September 2023. The Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award Scheme is offered to students from Year 10 upwards. Through DofE our students have fun, broaden their friendship groups, build confidence and gain valuable life skills. Parmiter’s is enormously proud of the number of students who achieve their Bronze, Silver and the prestigious Gold awards each year.
Some of our students who achieved their Gold Award were invited to Buckingham Place for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Ceremony. Prince Edward gave his first speech as the Duke of Edinburgh and took time to meet many of the participants. Five of our students seized the moment and, with true Parmiterian “Nemo Sibi Nascitur” spirit, invited his majesty to play a game of Jenga.
