The Duke of Edinburgh Award

"Life is either a great adventure or nothing"

- Helen Keller

The Duke of Edinburgh program is offered at Trinity to encourage our students to challenge themselves through setting and achieving goals across a range of activities.

This internationally recognised scheme provides an opportunity for students to develop skills, display initiative and build self-esteem. It is highly regarded by university admissions officers, potential employers and the wider community.

The Award is an enriching program that invites young people between the ages of 14 and 25 to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time. Participation is voluntary and is structured so that participants can design a unique program centred on their own interests and passions. They learn by experience the importance of commitment, enterprise and effort, discover a great deal about themselves and come to know the enjoyment of working with and for other people.

There are three levels to the Award; Bronze, Silver and Gold, and each level of the award has four mandatory sections; Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey. Students commence with the Bronze award and it it is our hope to see them progress through the levels to subsequently achieve their Silver and finally their Gold awards.
