Bingley Grammar School

Duke of Edinburgh Award

Some of our Year 10 (Bronze) and Year 11 (Silver) Duke of Edinburgh students have completed the volunteering section of their Award working for local charities. Each pupil must complete a minimum of 3 months voluntary work as part of their Award and many have chosen to spend their time helping out in the local community.

The group has done some great work and Mr Morse has received an extremely complimentary letter from one of the shops praising the attitudes and work ethic of our students.

One group of students; Zaina, Sabah and Naeemah in Year 10, also held a bake sale at their local post office in Riddlesden selling cupcakes, cookies and other tasty treats. The team raised over £30.00 for Manorlands - well done girls!

Silver Award Training Weekend
The Silver training weekend is heading out this weekend (April 7-9th). They will be beginning their weekend walking and navigating their way from near Howarth, spending their first night at Blackhills scout camp, before journeying across the moors to Ilkley.

Bronze Award Training Weekend
On the 6th and 7th of May approximately 60 students will be taking part in the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh training weekend.The students (and staff) will be navigating their way walking from school to Nell Bank scout camp in Ilkley. They will then camp overnight and walk back via a different route on the Sunday. 

We are very proud of the large number of students taking part in the DofE scheme and wish them the best of luck on their training weekends - we will have our fingers crossed for good weather!
