Malvern St James Girls Go for Gold

Published Thursday 26th of April 2012 12:10:14 PM

Many congratulations to Rosie Baker, Lizzie Utting, Toria Jackson, Rhiannon Allen and Brooke Cleave who have all successfully completed the GOLD Duke of Edinburgh�s Award. This extremely prestigious and well regarded award is the highest level of this international scheme of achievement.

It involves working for at least 18 months on an individual programme of activities, skills and volunteering. The most demanding physical activity is a 4 day, 50 mile expedition through Wild Country and entrants must also attend a residential event. Rosie went with the British Schools Exploring Society to Svalbad in the Arctic Circle, Rhiannon climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Universal Concern, raising funds for this worthy charity.

All these girls have, in fact, been with the Award since they were 14, when they joined at Bronze level and they have consistently worked their way up through the levels, from Bronze and Silver to Gold. Completing all of the sections, over the 3 levels, demands commitment and determination and a willingness to take part and try new things.
Rosie Baker, Joint Head Girl, said that she was very excited at having finished her award and had gained considerable enjoyment and satisfaction from taking part in the scheme.

All five girls are now able to receive their Gold Badge and Certificate at St James Palace, London later this year.
