Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme

This is a personal enrichment program, supported by Killara High School as a registered operator and it is internationally recognised. The concept of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme is based on an International Declaration, fundamental principles and essential philosophies.

The award concept is one of individual challenge.  It presents to young people a balanced, non-competitive program of voluntary activities, which encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance and responsibility to themselves and their community.

The award is primarily student based where the individual students plan and organise their own path to the achievement of each level: Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Guidance and advice is available with opportunities or activities advertised to the candidates.

The Bronze, Silver and Gold Award expeditions in 2016 will be managed by the Somerset Outdoor Learning Centre. KHS staff members will accompany the expeditions.
