Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award recipients.Yesterday nine current and former pupils from GWC were presented with their Gold Awards in the presence of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in the gardens of the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

After chatting with His Royal Highness the group were presented their awards by Liz Cameron OBE, CEO and Director of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce.

In addition, some special long service awards were presented to some of our more experienced expedition assessors. Many pupils at GWC will recognise some of the assessors and will no doubt have met them on the hills of Scotland and northern England. They have over 150 years of assessing between them, and without their dedication, selfless commitment and guidance, we couldn't achieve the level of successes that we have at GWC with DofE.
