Head of School Surgeries

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Expedition

Last weekend a group of 16 Driffield School & Sixth Form students successfully completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Expedition. The three groups of students had all completed a practice expedition and this weekend they have completed their qualifying expedition.

The expeditions were over 2 days with 1 night camping, covering distances of approximately 15-18km each day whilst carrying some rather heavy rucksacks. Some of the children did their practice in July, on arguably the hottest day of the year! Quite a contrast to the conditions last weekend, when the students awoke on Sunday morning to ice on the inside of their tents! Miss Richardson-yates, Duke of Edinburgh Manager, said “I am delighted with how well all the students did over both the practice and qualifying expeditions. Despite weather conditions, there were smiles all round and some fantastic teamwork displayed”.

 

Save the Children Tsunami Relief Fund

Last week Mr Hunt, Head of Johnson House, set his students the challenge of a quick fire fundraiser in aid of the Save the Children Tsunami Relief Fund, following the devastating tsunami that hit Indonesia.

With the support of the Old Star in Kilham, and in under the space of one week, Mr Hunt was delighted to report that students have raised a fantastic £320.61!!

Mr Hunt said “I think this is testament to our students and their attitude to helping others, as well as the Johnson House Tutors support in encouraging students to give generously and helping them understand why it is important. Thank you so much for all your efforts in supporting this - we'll make a big difference here”.
