The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
In September 2016, CCHS became a DofE Direct Licensed Centre. This means we are now able to deliver and manage our own DofE program at CCHS.
Jane McCabe (DofE Operations Officer for Wakefield) presented Miss Bolton, Mr Disney and 2 students who are currently doing their Bronze Award with a framed certificate and plaque to celebrate the event.

Bronze Practice Expedition April 2016
Eleven students completed their Bronze DofE practice expedition this weekend. It involved the students planning their route and menu's for the weekend, then completing the two day walk around the Carleton/Ackworth/Wentbridge area.
The students camped overnight after making themselves a hot meal. They had to carry all their equipment for the weekend which included, tent, sleeping bag, food and cooking equipment.
There were a few sore feet and shoulders, but they all enjoyed it and are looking forward to completing their qualifying expedition in a few weeks time.
