Congratulations to our recent Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award recipients. This program can be found in more than 140 countries and territories worldwide. In Australia, over 35,000 young people participate in the program annually, supported by a network of over 80,000 adult volunteers acting as Award Leaders, Assessors and Supervisors. We are very grateful to the teachers within our school who act as mentors to support our students in this program.
By completing the Bronze Award, these students gain 10 SACE credits as well as gaining an advantage on their resume. The Award consists of four sections: Physical Recreation, Skills, Voluntary Service, and Adventurous Journeys.
Achieving an Award recognises individual goal setting and self-improvement through persistence and achievement. The students who were recently presented with their Bronze Award undertook a range of activities including:
- instrumental music study and involvement in ensembles
- preparation for AMEB music exams
- participation in our school’s 26 Book Challenge
- preparation for a Royal Academy of Dance Intermediate exam
- involvement in school and club sport
- volunteering regularly at a school OSHC program
- recording oral histories of some older family members
- producing book trailers for our school library
- volunteering within a church teaching Sunday school
Congratulations Zara, Georgina, Bianca, Victoria, Tansy, and Macy on this special recognition.
Students who are 14 or older may take part in the program. Please contact Emma Rieger for more information.
