Year 9 information evening for the Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Duke of Edinburgh award is moving into its second year at Waverley College, with 2017 seeing numerous achievements in multiple aspects of physical activity, skills and community service. During their Adventurous Journey Camps, the Year 9 and 10 Duke of Edinburgh participants improved their navigation skills immensely and were pushed out of their comfort zones, with some students covering approximately 100km of ground in a week!
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a three certificate system which encourages and enables students to be proactive in taking on challenges, setting goals and being active in the local community. The award requires students to take responsibility and initiative to progress and complete the award scheme.
Interested students of Year 9 2018 and their parents are invited to an information evening in Week 3 of Term 1. Attendance is strongly advised if your son wishes to register. Information will also be sent home to all Year 9 Students and their parents via email to familiarise yourselves with the structure of the award prior to the information evening.
When and where:
Date: 15th February 2018
Location: PAC, Waverley College
RSVP: 12th February 2018 via a survey on student email
