The latest CEC HQ guidelines are that all excursions that require travel beyond the JGHS campus are to be cancelled until further notice. Therefore we are going to have to take the decision to postpone the practice expedition. We also will have to cancel the Dofe meetings for Gold this term on the 20th , 24th and 27th March.
If the guidelines change then all new information will be put on this website.
The Sept expeditions are expected to go ahead and if we haven’t been able to do our Practise expedition in June 2020 then the Sept expedition will be a practise and the assessed expedition will be the following June 2021.
The Green Team are a charity that works with young people in and around Edinburgh aiming to connect people with nature, each others and themselves. They run a variety of different programmes for people from all backgrounds and ages. Two of their programmes; Green Volunteers and Green Angels are suitable for completing volunteering and skill sections for DofE and are available for young people aged between 12-18. Both these programmes run at the weekends during term time and involve some conservation work. See www.greenteam.org.uk for details.
