Former Carmel College student Frankie Lennon, recently attended a celebration in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, where he received his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Achieving the Gold Award, shows you have the skills, determination and mentality to succeed and this is celebrated with a presentation at the Palace.
Frankie, along with hundreds of young people who have also achieved the award, met many inspiring people during the day.
HRH Princess Beatrice, spoke to their group and Frankie also got to meet many famous faces, such as Actor, David Bradley, who played Mr Filch in Harry Potter.
This is a fantastic achievement for Frankie and all students at Carmel can take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Programme.
