On Friday 9 November, 22 students received their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards certificates and badges. The Bronze Award is the first level of the program and involves a 3-6 month commitment plus 4 days of an adventurous journey.
The Duke of Edinburgh program is an internationally recognised award that invites young people aged 14-25 to realise their ambitions and to change their world.
Young people challenge themselves by choosing activities that spark their interest in the three sections of the award – service, physical and skill. They set their own goals and work towards achieving them over the given time period.
