I have now paid for licenses for those who have paid their £19 eDofE money. This next session is split into two. One half you will do keep fit which is part of your Physical section. The other half will be getting you up and running with eDofE. For those students who included an email address on the yellow application form I put this on your registration document. Everybody will need to have an email address which can be used by the Award for correspondence. Come along on the Monday ready to type it in. Also a postcode and have a password in mind and write it down somewhere. If you have already sorted a place for Volunteering and Skill, bring the details – address, name of supervisor (that is the person who will sign to say you have done it) and their phone number and email address.
Please wear suitable clothes for the keep fit session.
Any uncertainties speak to Mrs Reynolds, Mr Lawson or me. Or text / phone me on 07789921157.
Please check that our records are correct. The list shows who has paid their eDofE license. There are a few people who have filled in the application (contract) but have not yet paid. Please pay this by Thursday, 4pm.
Thanks, Mr Archer
