The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a committed personal challenge in which young people embark on a well-rounded journey to discover their potential. It is offered as part of our College’s co-curricular program as its principles fit well with Flinders’ values and vision for our students – enabling our students to contribute to their community, to lead and to take responsibility for their actions.
The Award recognises teens and young adults (14 to 25 years) as they progress through each level (Bronze, Silver and Gold), learning a skill, improving their physical wellbeing, volunteering in their community and experiencing a team adventure in a new environment. It is a non-competitive program encouraging personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility and service to the community.
