Valuable voluntary service by students

The Duke Of Edinburgh award scheme has valued Ipswich School’s voluntary work at an enormous £11,942 of social value – the extra value to the local community of our students’ volunteering. A total of 2262 hours, or over 3.5 months, of work has contributed to the DofE community section, which was over 740 more hours than last year!

This year, I have completed my bronze DofE, with my community section being a contribution of homemade cakes to a local care home. It was a heartwarming experience, as I felt that I was making a difference and giving back to the older generations. Other examples of community volunteering include coaching junior sports teams, volunteering in a library or charity shop, carrying out litter picks or being a marshall on Parkrun events.

The DofE scheme continues to grow through Ipswich School thanks to the work of Mr Ross along with a number of other staff, who oversee and organise the expeditions, and the skills, physical and community sections of the award.
