The Duke of Edinburgh award

The popularity of the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme at Rose Bay Secondary College continues to grow and many of our students participate at different levels. The concept of the D of E is simple – anyone aged between 14 and 25 can do a program at one of three progressive levels which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. With assistance from voluntary teachers, participants select and set objectives in each of the following areas:

  • Volunteering: undertaking service to individuals or the community.
  • Physical: improving in an area of sport, dance or fitness activities.
  • Skills: developing practical and social skills and personal interests.
  • Expedition: planning, training for and completion of an adventurous journey. For bronze, this is a weekend away doing roughly 15 km a day, based on a preplanned route.
