Teenagers from Dartford Bridge Learning and Community Campus in Birdwood Avenue demonstrate excellent focus

21 June 2014

Teenagers studying for their Duke of Edinburgh bronze award have demonstrated a real eye for photography.

Images captured by 16-year-olds Herieth Mbade, Rhianna Nash and Ieva Indrikonyte are on display at Dartford library until next Thursday.

The girls are part of a six-strong group from the Bridge 4 Young People project and have spent three months learning about photography for the skills section of their award.

The DofE programme is divided into three levels, bronze, silver and gold, and students achieve their award by completing four sections, volunteering, physical, skills and expedition, plus a residential unit if going for gold.

They meet at Dartford Bridge Learning and Community Campus in Birdwood Avenue every Tuesday evening.

Centre manager and DofE co-ordinator Chris Hills said: “They are already talking about what they want to do for their silver award so it shows they are determined and motivated.”

The exhibition at Dartford library was opened by Dartford mayor Cllr Avtar Sandhu (Con).

Bridge 4 Young People will be recruiting for new DofE members in the summer.
