SJR Students At Buckingham Palace

Some of our high-achieving students picked up their gold Duke of Edinburgh certificates at the Gold Awards Presentation at Buckingham palace.
The students met Prince Edward, who they found to be “very nice and chatty, very down to earth as well.”
The celebrity guest speaker was Rudolph Walker (Patrick off Eastenders), who the students found to be “amazing,” particularly in the way that he spoke from the heart on how their achievements on the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme have inspired him.
