Overview of The Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a three level award with four areas of personal and social development: physical recreation, service, skills, and adventurous journeys. The Gold Level Award has a fifth requirement of a residential project. Gold award ceremonies are an amazing experience. Gold Award recipients at the September 2017 Gold Award ceremony in Toronto got to meet Prince Harry, and fellow Gold Award alumni and Vice President of the Canadian Olympic Committee Peter Lawless.
Frequent overnight trips, and a broad curriculum that spans a wide variety or arts, sciences, and life skills means that our Senior School LC girls will all be able to get at least their Silver Duke of Ed Award, and most will graduate with their Gold.
