Gold Awards at Buckingham Palace

1st Jun 2023

We are delighted to share another success story for Belmont pupils, past and present, from the Gold Awards held at Buckingham Palace last month.

This photo was sent to us by proud Belmont House School parent, Mrs A McNair. We also see our Music teacher, Mrs J Smart, whose daughter Holly was receiving a Gold Award too. The location is the garden at Buckingham Palace and the occasion was one of the first Gold Award presentations by the newly installed Duke of Edinburgh. Senior 6 pupil, Robbie McNair, received his award as did former pupil, Calum Norrington, seen here in his Dundee University Officer’s No 2 dress uniform. Holly Smart also got her award in the sun in London.

Robbie’s DofE journey started here at the School in 2019 and he has done extremely well to get all three levels of the award in this time- keeping going even through the COVID-19 pandemic, as did a number of our pupils, including Calum. 

A huge well done to all three young adults for reaching what is a truly great milestone
