Students Awarded the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

17 Compass International School students attained the Bronze level of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award over the summer and were presented with their awards during the whole school assembly on Thursday 28th September.

These successful participants spent 3-6 months undertaking a skill, a physical recreation and a service which benefitted the community, as well as planning and completing a 36 hour self-sufficient adventurous journey on foot in the mountains of Ras Al Khaimah.

Last year was only the second year in which students could participate in The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at Compass and the number of participants has grown again this year with students participating in Bronze, Silver and Gold standards.

Many of the students presented with their Bronze Award on Thursday are participating in the Award at Silver standard this year with their adventurous journey being 3 days trekking in the Nepal Himalayas, whilst he Gold adventurous journey will be a 4 day expedition in Vietnam.

For more information on how to get involved with the Award, please contact the school’s Award Coordinator, Dr John Warren.
