In conclusion, we are always grateful to hear from those willing to assist us in our work in any way or who wish to give financial or sponsorship support.
The operation of the DofE in Belfast Royal Academy hopefully helps to develop in our participants qualities of diligence, perseverance, resilience, dependability, commitment, adaptability, leadership and team-work. The lasting success of the DofE in the school is the direct result of a committed partnership between parents, pupils, teachers, governors and a large group of volunteer adult helpers and instructors, including past pupils who are Gold Award Holders. With continued dedication, vision and hard work we can, as a team, build on our achievements and fulfil the highest objects of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
