Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme

Burwood Girls High School offers students the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.

The school has four trained leaders: Kate Stavert, Heather Oh, Deborah Segal and Guy McCulloch. The coordinator is Heather Oh (Mathematics Faculty).

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program is a leading structured youth development program, for young Australians between ages 14 and 25.

The award is a fully inclusive program and has no social, political, or religious affiliations. Each young person who takes part in the award learns a skill, improves their physical wellbeing, volunteers in their community and goes on an adventure.

Students are invited to register for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award through the coordinators and complete their skill, physical recreation and volunteering sections over the summer holidays.

The school also offers a training walk and an adventurous journey each year for the Bronze Award in the form of two overnight hikes, usually held in Term 4.

Silver and Gold Awards are also catered for at the school when appropriate.
