In February, many of our forty-one bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award recipients were able to attend a rescheduled celebration evening. The ceremony was also attended by family, friends and well-wishers, who were able to learn more about the amazing achievements of Ridgeway students. The guest of honour was Nicky Cage, DofE operations manager for the region, who presented award certificates.
Well done to all the students for their endeavours, showing resilience, determination and fortitude.
