INTREPID students were presented with Duke of Edinburgh’s Award certificates at a ceremony in Whitby High School.
The annual awards evening for participants in the scheme saw the presentation of bronze and silver certificates to more than 70 students in Years 11 and 12 at the school.
The packed hall was entertained by Blackbird performing Disco 2000 by Pulp and Parklife by Blur along with Lauren Selby-Hughes singing Still Hurting from the musical The Last Five Years.
Duke of Edinburgh's Award participants undertaking the Wirral Coast Walk in May raised more than £2,000 for charity, presenting £1,000 to the Parkinson's Society and £1,200 to the MS Society.
Tony Lamberton, the guest speaker, inspired the students with tales of his travels in mountains all over the world and encouraged them to set themselves further challenges.
This year, more than 180 students from Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 are participating in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme at Whitby High School at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.
They set themselves the challenge of completing a physical activity, developing a skill and undertaking some voluntary work in their local community.
All participants have to complete an expedition and gold participants also complete a residential section.
A spokesman for the school said: “The teachers at Whitby High School are extremely proud of all of the successful students gaining bronze and silver awards and wish all current participants every success in completing their awards over the next few months.”
