Time: Wednesdays 3:30-4:40pm. Resumes 25 July

Classes are available for students from Class 3 to Year 9.

Venue: Junior School Library

Fees: $ 200 (Material included, one Term per student)

Duke of Edinburgh

Donna Miller

A Youth Development Program which empowers young people to explore their potential.

Although voluntary, Glenaeon encourages all Year 9 students to participate in the Bronze award.

It comprises four components which the participant undertakes by setting a goal and working consistently over a period of time to achieve it:

  1. Service (there are options to do this in school through a mentoring program, assisting Class 3 with reading as well as other opportunities like the Student Representative Committee, Environmental Care, Café assistant in Food Preparation, etc)
  2. Physical fitness
  3. Skill
  4. Adventure Journey (to a large degree, this part of the Duke of Ed is actually factored into the School’s Outdoor Education Program)

Students in Year 10 and who have turned 15 Years old have the opportunity to undertake the Silver Award and from 16 Years old, the Gold Award which has a further aspect in Residential Project.
