The Duke of Edinburgh Award

issue0217-duke-of-edThe Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme challenges young people to achieve new skills and experience adventure.

Students choose from a wide range of activities which suit their particular interests and abilities. There are three award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Within each level, students must select and undertake activities that fit the purpose of each of the four sections of the Award; i.e. Adventurous Journey, Skill, Volunteering and Fitness/Physical Recreation.  

Students are responsible for organising the Skill, Volunteering and Fitness/Physical Recreation components of the award. The adventurous journeys (i.e. expeditions), will be organised by PLC Sydney.
