Eleven heaven for Honiton Community College students.

Eleven Honiton Community College students have successfully completed their bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

They were presented with their awards by Linda Price, the Chair of Governors in front off the entire college.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is an award given for completing a programme of activities that can be undertaken by anyone aged 14 to 24.

The group had undertaken sixth months of voluntary work in the community, improved their personal fitness and skills and undertaken a challenging two-day expedition on one of the hottest weekends of the year.

The external expedition assessor added a note to his report which read “What great kids, wow! They are mature, responsible, polite, fun, sensible respectful, cooperative, team players and competent. Utterly brilliant.”

The recipients of the award were Ameerah Askew, Dan Hole, Joe Few, Lauren Hunt, Cerys Little, Tess Myzscka, Shaun Summers, Will Taylor, Freya Westall and Ben Williams.
