Duke of Edinburgh Award program

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a worldwide scheme offering young people challenges on several fronts such as outdoor adventure, community service, physical recreation and skill development.

What is it all about? 

The award is a non-competitive program that empowers young people and provides opportunity for students to acquire and develop skills, initiative and self-esteem, helping them to become more confident members of the community.

Participation in the award is highly regarded by many employers and organisations.

Participants, in conjunction with adult helpers, devise an individual program of activities which is flexible enough to satisfy their enthusiasm and meet their aptitudes, capabilities and available resources.

You can move through bronze, silver and gold levels. 

Every award is different, and what you choose to undertake is entirely up to you!

You get to base your award, around your passions and your ambitions

So how do you get started?

We are excited to provide Year 9, 10 and 11 students with the opportunity to participate in this enriching program.

There will be announcements made during year meetings and assemblies and there will also be a parent information evening held during Term 4.
