The gold, silver and bronze levels of the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh Award Program are offered as an extra-curricular program at the College.
Participation in the Duke of Edinburgh program is entirely voluntary and requires a high level of student engagement, motivation and ownership. Whilst the Awards are structured to assist in the development of your daughter’s confidence, teamwork and leadership skills, students are responsible for designing, completing and documenting their own unique program.
The required elements of the Duke of Ed Award are;
the completion of two overnight hiking journeys
weekly participation, in a chosen Skill, Service and Physical Recreation activity
the completion of an individual 5 day residential journey for Gold Participants.
The Award challenges young people not only to complete the compulsory elements of the Award but also challenges them to provide documentary evidence of their accomplishments.
