DoE Bronze Award-Year 10
Over 170 students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at BHHS
The Duke of Edinburgh Team is glad to see 85 Bronze and 25 Silver/Gold participants sign up for the Award in 2018. These students join 60 students still finishing up their award from 2017. Year 10 students are offered the award as an elective. All senior students are welcome to join the program at Bronze Silver or Gold Levels.
If you are not sure what this award is all about, keep an eye out on Wednesday afternoons for our Year 10 students participating in a multifaceted program involving Parkour, Kayaking, Trees Adventure, Hiking, Cooking, Navigation, Camps and much more.
So far students have tested their navigation skills in Sherbrook State Forests, pushed their limits at Belgrave Trees Adventure, Kayaked on the Yarra River, honed their photography skills around Box Hill High School and been introduced to Trangia cooking. Coming up next term are 2-hour volunteering sessions at the Australian Migrant Education Service (AMES), a Mental Health First Aid Course and practice hikes to pockets of Melbourne’s wilderness.
We look forward to helping students achieve their awards and continue to contribute to their community.
