Hi DofE students and parents,
This half term is rather short. Those planning October expeditions or training groups for October expeditions must attend all sessions listed below or risk being dropped from groups. See the all new PERKY RGS DofE Gold Award Scheme 2013 (1) rules (Gold but applies to all levels). Plus, as usual, please consult DATES! page and expedition training pages for more details. Also, kit list here.
ALL DofE students must keep their eDofE pages up to date and current. Email any snags to SAC at the earliest opportunity.
All Awards are now passed through your eDofE page so all sections must be completed BY YOU on eDofE to earn your award.
Attendance at DofE meetings is compulsory and will be registered. Email firstname.lastname@example.org in good time if absence completely unavoidable. Persistant non-attendances will mean losing your place on expeditions and no further dofe 😦
This is a provisional schedule: things can change so please listen out and stay in touch by visiting this site.
Communication is the key to stay ahead with your DofE and to finish it successfully. Email, blog, twitter (@RGSdofe is embryonic) , Facebook, mobile, bulletin, letters and visiting DofE Office any lunchtime are all ways that YOU can know what is going on. If in any doubt please contact me or ALW or KSH for an update.
Note: canoe groups of all levels should attend all meets to get info on their training schedules.
