PublishingPageContent

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (Duke of Ed) is an international, non-competitive program of personal achievement run by the Australian Award Office and coordinated by Brisbane State High School (BSHS).

Duke of Ed gives people aged 14 to 25 a chance to try new things, learn new skills, explore new places and meet new friends, regardless of ability.

The award is recognised by government and many employers for its value in helping develop the personal abilities of young people. Students also receive points towards their Queensland Certificate of Education on completion of each award level.

Program

There are three levels within the award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level becomes progressively more challenging, and comprises four parts:

  • Physical Recreation—encouraging participation in physical activities and improvement in performance;
  • Skill—encouraging the discovery and development of personal interests;
  • Service—encouraging a heightened sense of awareness of responsibility to others;
  • Expedition—encouraging a spirit of adventure and discovery.

Many students already take part in one or more extra-curricular activities inside or outside the school. After joining the Award Scheme, these activities can also count towards achieving their goal.

Volunteers

Parents/guardians interested in volunteering can contact the Master in Charge (MiC).
