27 May Outdoor Education at HGS – Duke of Edinburgh Awards
To celebrate the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award reaching its Diamond Anniversary, Highbury Grove School was invited to a Gold Award Presentation at Buckingham Palace.
We met the Duke of Edinbrugh himself who congratulated the students who had completed their Gold Award, and thanked Highbury Grove for giving its students the opportunity to take part in the Award. We also met Dr Christian Jessen from Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies, who presented the students with their certificates and presented Highbury Grove School with a 60th Anniversary plaque as a thank you for taking part in the scheme.
We currently have four sixth formers who are aiming to complete their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. They are Aamnah, Edgars, Arif and Mohamed all in Year 12.
We are also taking seven Year 10 students out for their Bronze Practice Expedition in Hertfordshire at the end of May.
