DofE Cobham Hall Visit
Recently, HRH The Earl of Wessex visited Cobham Hall to thank local schools and organisations who run the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
The Earl met young people and DofE representatives to showcase how doing the DofE can benefit more businesses, schools and young people. The Thomas Aveling School was represented by students in our 6th Form who are currently doing their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the Thomas Aveling Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Youth Ambassador. Although it was a rainy day, Emma, Ollie, Rebecca, Tree, Paris and Lauren along with Mrs McEwen showcased games of low organisation which can be played to build team comradery and pass time when at the campsite whilst out on expedition.
Thank you to all the participants it was a lovely day to share with our next leaders.
