The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award was founded by His Royal Highness
The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, to encourage personal development and
community involvement for young people. The programme has three levels, Bronze,
Silver and Gold, and is open to any person between the ages of 14 and 25.
Participants complete The Award by achieving personally established goals, in
the areas of Community Service, Skill Development, Physical Recreation, and
Adventurous Journey. In pursuing these activities, young people learn
responsibility, acquire new skills, and increase their level of physical
fitness. In achieving the goals they set for themselves, participants
demonstrate their commitment, motivation, and personal development.
Congratulations to RD student, Anthony Ferens who will be accepting his Silver Award on November 8 at the Government House. Anthony’s dance classes at the RWB School played a role in fulfilling some of the requirements of this award.
