Duke of Edinburgh Diamond Challenge 2016

A group of our Duke of Edinburgh Award pupils were at Holyrood Place on 19th September 2016 to wave off the Countess of Wessex as she set off on a 450 mile cycle ride from Edinburgh to Buckingham Palace in support of the 60th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.  

 
The pupils also had the opportunity to celebrate English teacher, Miss Macleod’s achievement of receiving a Diamond pin from HRH Prince Philip and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex following her completion of the Award’s Diamond Challenge.
