The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an international self-development Program available to all young people ages 14 – 25, equipping them with life skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities and the world. The Award Program comprises four Sections: service to the community, exploration of the great outdoors, development of practical or cultural skills and improvement of physical fitness.
Grace Christian School has been actively involved in this program for over twenty years, with more than one hundred of our students achieving awards at some level.
There are three Award levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold, each requiring an increasing level of commitment and effort. The Bronze usually takes 6-12 months to complete, the Silver 12-18 and the Gold 18-24 months.
