DofE story

Breakfast with DofE

On 1 November, two DofE gold level graduates were invited to appear on Breakfast with Nova, where they had the chance to present the programme they themselves had completed to the general public. You can watch a recording of the programme at the link. The DofE is discussed at 1:00:45.

DofE Club

The Club was very active in October. It organized an open silver expedition, in which two teams participated. Club member Illy went to Italy to act as an assessor for the gold expedition and four other members received their gold awards at the ceremony.

The club has finished the Autumn Weekend in Olomouc and is planning a Christmas meeting, which will take place on 11 December in Prague. In addition to refreshments and Christmas music, Secret Santa will also be present. Information about all events can be found on the club's website >>


On an expedition to Italy

To the north of Rome are desolate and high mountains. Three boys and two girls from the Rumburk Gymnasium formed a team and bravely embarked on an expedition to this rugged terrain of the Apennines, where it was really not easy to navigate. They gained many unforgettable experiences, such as spending a night in the gardens of an ancient Benedictine monastery, or overcoming great elevations and swimming in rivers. Fulfilling the expedition's goal of comparing the flowers and trees to our homeland was also great. A well-deserved pizza and sightseeing in the Vatican and Rome were duly enjoyed at the end.
