The seniors meet together with the Company Section on a Friday night. In addition to the activities of the Company Section, they also get involved in a number of more advanced things, including being given responsibilities in leadership within the different sections of New Deer BB. For seniors, the achievements scheme is primarily geared towards the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (see below) and the President's and Queen's badges, which involve similar work to the DoE. There is also a specific Senior's Badge, which covers a wide variety of activities from charity work and sports on BB night to the recent work on skills for new drivers and car maintenance.
Duke of Edinburgh's Award:
Boys at Senior age level are encouraged to take part in The Duke of Edinburgh Award. Several of our young men have already come through the programme and been awarded their Gold badge at Holyrood Palace! http://www.dofe.org/
This is a chance to get more out of life, experience new things, help others and meet new people, as well as getting something to enhance your CV. Activities include learning a new skill, helping other members of the community, taking part in a regular physical activity and enduring an expedition in the hills. Everyone that takes part in the award scheme enjoys themselves and has a great sense of achievement at the end of the day.
