LORICE And Duke Of Edinburgh Award Scheme

 

LORICELaunched September 2019, this scheme focuses on the development of pupil’s personal skills through Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative, Communication and Entrepreneurialism.   All pupils in Year 7 will take part in the programme carrying out  a series of self planned events either individually or in a group throughout the year that will meet the requirements of the LORICE objectives. The secure on-line system will allow students to record and evaluate activities before being presented with a certificate of achievement at a formal evening of celebration in the Pritchard Hall at the end of the year.

We are proud of our newly acquired status as a licensed DofE Centre and from September 2019 are pleased to be offering the Silver Award, in addition to the current Bronze Award programme.  The DofE scheme provides a natural ‘next step’ in the co-curricular programme for our students.  Having completed their LORICE scheme, the girls develop a secure understanding and appreciation of compassion and thinking of others, alongside an emerging ability to identify personal skill development.  The link to the DofE website, above, provides further information on the commitments of the Bronze and Silver Awards, along with an extensive list of all the possible Volunteering, Physical and Skill activities that your daughter can choose.
