The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Welcome to DofE at QEGS

Quote

At QEGS we offer the three levels of the Duke of Edinburgh program; Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Duke of Edinburgh program is open to students from Year 9 upwards, with most starting their journey with Bronze level in Year 9.

If you would like to know what the Duke of Edinburgh program is about, please watch the excellent summary video below from DofE.org

The Duke of Edinburgh program is about so much more than just the expedition and activity sections; it builds self-esteem and confidence, develops essential life skills and attributes required to succeed in life after school – resilience, commitment, communication, team-work. Our students overcome challenges along their Duke of Edinburgh journey and create memories, stories, experiences, and friendships that last a lifetime.

But you don’t just have to take my word for it…..

Here is what some of our QEGS Duke of Edinburgh students say about the program………..
