Thanks to Marie Sparkes for this amazing movie animating some fictional DofE experiences! I think she has done a truly wonderful job and very entertaining. This was completed for her Bronze DofE skill. Well done Marie!visit post page to view dofe-expedition-movie
Here is a guide for 3rd Year pupils and parents thinking of starting Bronze DofE this January. This will be available as a hard copy at the Options Evening for parents and at the DofE assembly, both in January.
The RGS Sign Language Course starts in September!
It can count for Silver skill OR volunteering (service).
It is run by a professional sign language tutor and takes place on Tuesdays after school 4-5pm and lasts about 12 weeks.
It is open to DofE 5th formers wanting to do a useful voluntary service or skill. For those doing it as a service you will need to extend your activity by raising deaf awareness in school or finding a placement in the community (tricky in the past). For those doing this as a skill you will find the course is sufficient to cover the silver requirement of 3 months of regular activity.
Sign up now in the DofE Office: any lunchtime!
NEWS: Current 4th year Bronze pupils continuing with Silver in the 5th form can enrol on the RGS Police Course which starts in September 2010. The Police Course counts as a SKILL and is an official course run by the Police. It runs for about 10 weeks on Tuesdays 4 – 5pm at school, usually Room 1.
It’s a popular course so sign up soon – get your name down at the dofe office.
Enrol in the summer term.
