David Rogers Achieves DOE Gold Award 2019

DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S INTERNATIONAL GOLD AWARD

David Rogers started his Bronze Award way back in May 2016, when he was in C Block.

After completing his Silver Award in 2017, he quickly moved onto tackling his Gold.

He has just completed the 52 weeks of Archery, Conservation and Rowing in order to achieve sections of his Gold Award. He chose to walk the very tough River to River Adventurous Journey in Nyanga last year and spent a week volunteering down at Rifa Conservation Camp in Chirundu doing back breaking work jobs like clearing and making firebreaks, setting up erosion control on roads etc.

He has displayed amazing tenacity and determination to achieve all three levels of this internationally recognized youth development program and it is with great pride that we can now present David Rogers his Gold Award.
