Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award Training

Thursday, 19 September, 2019

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is available to all 14-24 year olds and is the world's leading youth achievement award. It equips young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests.

On the weekend of 14-15 September, eleven students from Grade 11 hiked the Harz district as a practice expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. It was a good time for us to see how our groups work as a team, to learn more about each other, and to see parts of Germany we may not have seen before. We spent four days in beautiful “wild” country, camping, hiking, and learning some new skills.
