Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at Gracemount High School
- 13 September 2023
From crisp winter training walks in the Pentlands to golden wild-camp sunsets at Yellowcraigs, Gracemount High School pupils and staff have been public-transported from Gilmerton to all parts of The Lothians on their expeditions activity during 2023. Working in partnership with Awards Plus/Friends of the Award (funded by City of Edinburgh Council and supported by its Outdoor Learning team) DofE participation has expanded from 5 pupils in 2019 to 32 Bronze and Silver completions in 2023.
