Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme has operated at the school for many years and there is always an enthusiastic and substantial number of students engaged in it.  There are three levels of the Award - gold, silver and bronze - with participants setting themselves personal challenges at each level in each activity. 

There are four sections which are designed to present a balanced program of personal development:
  • Service:  designed to develop and encourage a sense of community spirit and responsibility to others
  • Adventurous Journey:  designed to encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery
  • Skills:  designed to encourage the development of personal interests and practical skills
  • Physical Recreation:  designed to encourage participation in physical recreation and improvement in fitness and performance
At the Gold level there is a further requirement to undertake a residential project.
