Duke of Edinburgh's Award students make real contribution to the local community

DofE students at Severn Vale make a real contribution to the local community

During the last academic year, 22 students completed their Bronze DofE Awards and 8 students completed their Silver DofE Awards (having completed their Bronze Awards the year before).

These students in total completed 1651 hours of activity outside of the curriculum. 

  • 598 hours learning new skills in music, photography, cooking, drama and many more areas. 
  • 442 of physical activity including football, rugby, netball, hockey, badminton and various other sports.  
  • 661 hours of volunteering to help in charity shops, the local library, read to younger students, childcare settings, local primary schools, scouts/ brownies and many other wonderful things to help the local community.

The DofE estimate the value of these volunteering hours to be worth £2,474.55 to the local community.

Well done to all those who passed their awards and contributed to the total number of hours.
