The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a non-competitive, internationally recognized program designed to encourage young people to develop positive skills and lifestyle habits.
The Award is about personal challenge and development and is adaptable according to each participant’s interests and abilities. The strength of the Award is our ability to readily partner with other youth organizations through leader development and resource sharing.
The Award concept is one of individual challenge. It presents young people a balanced, not-competitive program of voluntary activities which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community.
Pupils in year 10 can enrol on the Bronze Award, which involves carrying out a Skill, Volunteering and Physical activity over a period of 6months for one section and 3 months for the other two. A practice expedition involving 2 days and one night out is also required to complete the award.
Pupils in year 11 can enrol for the Silver level, and those in year 12 for the gold level. These require a greater time commitment and longer expeditions.
