    Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award - Snowdon

    Many congratulations must go to Isobel Clay and Charlotte Smith for being the first students at St. Catherine's to complete their Gold Award. They have spent the last year

    completing their sections for the award: Volunteering, Physical and Skill and the final section being the Expedition which took place in Snowdon during the Easter break. The girls joined with 5 boys from Hampton School to journey over 4 days in Snowdon displaying self sufficiency throughout. They were very lucky with the weather despite the forecast stating otherwise and they all returned with a healthy glow rather than a rucksack full of wet clothes!

    A special mention to Mr Clark at Hampton School whose help and support as usual was invaluable.

    I am so proud of these girls but especially as they achieved this milestone prior to my retirement from St. Catherine's
