Duke of Edinburgh's Award
We have a Bronze award to report. Grace Moritz volunteered for three months as a helper in a community-run village shop . She chose dance for her Physical activity, and after months of rehearsing together, played the lead role as Snow White in a Pantomime with audiences of 300-plus. Singing was her choice for the Skill section, and in a six-month period she progressed well, achieving a Merit in the ABRSM Grade 5 exam. Her expedition in September in the New Forest with two girls and four boys was very successful, and she produced a beautiful wall-chart showing the birds of the forest. Her Bronze is very well-deserved.
Our expedition training sessions start on Wednesday evenings from 11th January, so if you know of anyone in School Year 9 or above who might be interested in joining us this year, then do let me know — or ask them to contact me directly!
Young Ventures — Another year!
We had offered pre-Duke of Edinburgh's Award expeditions through Boys' Brigade for many years, but 2017 was the first year for our church's "Young Venturers" group open to any boy or girl in School Year 7 or 8.
It proved so successful that we're offering it again this year! The training sessions start at 7pm on Wednesday 11th January, in preparation for undertaking expeditions in the summer months. Anyone who is interested in taking part should get in touch with me as soon as possible.
