The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is one of personal challenge and development of leadership skills for students. In early March, the first of our twelve Duke of Edinburgh participants received their certificate and badge for completion of the Bronze Award.
To achieve the Bronze Award, participants must commit, on average to one hour a week, for a minimum of three months in the areas of service, physical recreation and new skills. The adventurous journey component included two hikes, with one being overnight.
Mr Grahame Binns, SGCS Supervisor of the Award, presented Flynn W. and Tyron V. (Year 10) with their awards, to an audience of their peers.
Both Flynn and Tyron said they enjoyed the challenge offered by the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and are looking forward to continuing onto the Silver Award.
Our congratulations to these students for their commitment and determination.
