DofE Gold Awards Presentations
Eleven former pupils received their Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award during a presentation in the gardens of the Palace of Holyroodhouse today. St Columba’s has a remarkable 30-year history of DofE success, with a great number of pupils consistently achieving Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. The Gold Award in particular represents many hours of training, determination and a challenging final expedition.
HRH The Earl of Wessex talked to a number of recipients about their activities and experiences during the Duke of Edinburgh programme, which was followed by the presentation of the certificates by Mr Damian Bates, Editor-In-Chief of Aberdeen Journals.
Congratulations to: Peter Borland, Amy Bretherton, Katie Campbell, Isobel Clarke, Andrew Holbrook, William John Courtenay Hesselmann, Steven Leighton, Josh Nandwani, Madeleine Stow, Sophie Wilson and Sian Wotherspoon.
