Congratulations to Catherine Campbell (Year 13), who has completed the final requirement for her Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Catherine’s story was featured on the Duke of Edinburgh International Award website, where she shared her experiences of working towards the award whilst living in Saudi Arabia, and explained how restrictions around females not being allowed to go camping with males presented her with a range of challenges to overcome.
For her Gold Award Residential Project, Catherine travelled to Vietnam to help build a house for a family. Every day, Catherine and her fellow volunteers walked 5km to the house and back, past different villages and schools, which gave everyone a fantastic insight into life in Vietnam, outside the major cities.
