It is both challenging and fun, and for many young people, taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme can be a life-changing experience.

And from this year, North Walsham High School is expanding its DofE programme so that almost all of its Year 9 student will get to take part.

And the school has received a boost from North Walsham and District Round Table, which has donated £1,330 so that they can buy tents and other equipment for DofE camping expeditions.

Adam Pittman, teacher and the school’s DofE deputy leader, said: “We want to say thank you to the North Walsham Round Table for their generosity.

“This is going to be a massive help. The kids are all really excited about starting their Duke of Edinburgh’s.”

As part of the award, the students will also be volunteering around North Walsham in charity shops, with sports groups and for other good causes.
