Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Launch

Practice Expedition 2015Launched today, Year 10 students now have the opportunity to complete their Bronze Level Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at ALNS.  

 

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award is available to all current Year 10 students and is the world’s leading youth achievement award. It equips young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements.

 

Since its launch 60 years ago, the Award has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives. Through non formal education, the Award can play a critical role in a young person’s personal development and is achievable by any young person who wants to take up the challenge.
