Davenies Award Scheme
The Davenies Award Scheme (DAS), provides enrichment to the Years 7 & 8 learning experience. Delivered by a multi-faceted approach, DAS fosters leadership skills, teamwork, everyday life skills, entrepreneurship and a sense of service. The boys also have the opportunity to enjoy a range of cultural, creative, sporting, culinary, intellectual and sociable activities.
Over the course of Years 7 & 8, the boys participate in DAS sessions on Monday afternoons, after lessons, as well as being able to opt into a host of ‘Wacky Weekend’ activities on a Friday evening, or a Saturday.
DAS enables the boys to grow in confidence and to cultivate a range of personal skills. In every way, DAS augments the curriculum and provides an essential aspect of the boys’ development.
