PHSG students actively doing their DofE Award and adapting their endeavours throughout Covid-19!

We are extremely proud of our students who are continuing with their Duke of Edinburgh Awards throughout the difficult restrictions. The requirement for community support has never been in greater need and our students have been volunteering their time to help in such projects and adhering to all of the Covid19 guidelines in place. 

Hi, these are some of my DofE volunteering pictures, the activity is helping at the community enterprises in Saltash, recently we have been holding a community fridge. A community fridge is like a food bank but takes away the stigma that only people in need can use it, it also reduces waste going to landfill. I work there every Saturday from 9am-12pm. Also in one of the photos I am stood next to my mum which is why I am not social distancing from her. 

Thanks, Eleanor
