Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme hot topic at Speech Day

Leave a comment

Guest speaker at yesterday’s Speech Day, Georgina Brigden – Operations Officer for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme –  gave an inspirational talk about the scheme, a theme echoed in the Headmaster’s and outgoing Head Girl Anna’s speeches. We are proud of our record with the DofE – almost all girls completing at least the Silver Award, building their confidence, self reliance and a host of other skills valued by employers and universities.

Miss Brigden presented certificates, cups and prizes to over sixty of our Upper Prep and Senior pupils, for achievements ranging from academic to sporting, music, drama and art.

In house competitions, Austen swept the board, winning the cups for Lower Prep Sports Day, Upper Prep Sports Day, Senior  Sports Day, Overall Sports Day, House Music Festival and the Robertson Shield for the school quiz! The Victrix Ludorum (athlete’s cup) went to  Amy Hayhoe (Year 10).
