DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD15 Townsend students have completed a 10 week Fire Skills course at St Albans Fire Station for the skills section of their bronze award. The students have learnt to use breathing, car cutting and firefighting equipment during the course. Parents/carers and staff were invited to a passing out parade where our students showcased their new skills and they were presented with their course completion certificates and a photograph of their group.

Townsend C of E School has received the annual completion rates from the Duke of Edinburgh Award Charity and we are very pleased and proud that we are now 10th in the county (out of 91 centres) for enrolments and completed awards. This puts us in 2nd place within the Local Authority schools in Hertfordshire. We have been able to reach this excellent rate of completion due to the hard work of all the leaders, students and of course the parents who have supported us and their children.
Well done!!

We look forward to looking at the year 9 applications for the D of E Award that have been coming in thick and fast this week!
