The Duke of Edinburgh Award is non-competitive and encourages young people to set and achieve goals at a level appropriate to their needs and aspirations. It promotes leadership, community service, learning and initiative.
Oakhill College will be offering Bronze Level for Year 9 students and Gold Level for Year 11 students. These levels are made up of four Sections: Physical Recreation, Skill, Service and Adventurous Journey. Both levels include Adventurous Journey Expeditions designed to test students beyond their boundaries and experience something new. At Oakhill we attend 2-4 day sea kayaking expeditions at places like Kangaroo Valley, Sussex Inlet, Myall Lakes and the Hawkesbury River.
Participation is entirely voluntary and participants design their own unique program centered around their interests and passions. For more information please visit the Duke of Edinburgh website at www.dukeofed.com or contact the Coordinator of Duke of Edinburgh.
