DofE Bronze Award

Posted: 11th March 2016

As part of the Volunteering element of the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award, pupils at the College have in the past carried out voluntary work for various organisations including South West Lakes Trust and Dartmoor National Park Authority. In recent years, they have volunteered at Kelly House, the ancestral home of Admiral Kelly, in the small hamlet of Kelly. Work carried out includes: clearing and burning off laurel, creating flower beds, spring bulb planting and excavating turf to uncover the original stage coach drive. In recent weeks pupils excavated turf to uncover the original formal Victorian Rose Garden paths on the front, south facing side of the Grade 1 listed Manor house. After their hard work, the 'gardeners' were treated to a high tea on the terrace in sunshine – a delightful end to the day.
