Duke of Edinburgh Award

An International visit from the President of Bulgaria

We were delighted to receive President Rosen Plevneliev of Bulgaria, who visited The Grey Coat Hospital in March.

The President was interested in learning about the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Students welcomed our special guest, who is Patron of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Bulgaria, and shared with him their experience of participating in expeditions here in the UK. President Plevneliev presented six lucky students with their Bronze DoE certificates. He also met staff involved in delivering and supporting the Award in the school. The Award is a non-formal education programme which focuses on personal development and enables young people to learn practical and social skills that are valuable for their personal and professional development.
