Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme continues to thrive at Epping Boys High School. The expeditions have been a great success this year with students being exposed to a variety of terrain, weather and scrub.

It is entirely voluntary and is structured so the participants can design their own unique program centred around their interests and passions.

The Award is available to all young people aged between 14 and 25.

There are three levels to The Duke of Ed: Bronze, Silver and Gold

Physical Recreation

Break a sweat and improve your physical fitness.

This could be through a team sport, individual pursuit or simply getting out there and working up a sweat.

Skill

Unleash your talent and broaden your abilities.

Anything from refereeing, to DJing to learning a musical instrument, to jewellery making. The world is your oyster.

Service

Connect with your community and realise your passions.

Any area of interest in the community, such as youth work, the environment or charity work.

Adventurous Journey

Discover your sense of adventure and bond with your mates.

A journey into an unfamiliar environment with a group – bushwalking, canoeing, cycling – staying overnight and testing your resilience.

Residential Project

Broaden your horizons and open your eyes to the world.

In Australia or anywhere around the globe, limited only by your imagination. Live and work in a place of need – an orphanage, an environmental project, a village.

Mr Hungerford is the overall coordinator of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme at Epping Boys High School, with Mr Leggo the coordinator of the Bronze Award component. Mr Leggo and Mr Hungerford may be found in the Science staff room.
