Glenaeon grabs Bronze, Silver and Gold in the Duke of Edinburgh

09 February 2021

Last week at Assembly, Teacher Donna Miller acknowledged the achievement of our Duke of Edinburgh students. Notably, from the Class of 2020, Joe McCormick who achieved his Gold Duke of Ed. Joe's volunteer service was coordinating E-sports events. For his skill - participating in E-Sports competition and for his Fitness requirement, further developing his skills at tennis. 

Donna then presented Duke of Ed certificates to Year 11 students, Marc and Grace, achieving Bronze level, and Year 12 Student, Lara, for achieving Silver level. Many students were interrupted in their progress on the Award due to the pandemic but it is hoped with the lifting of restrictions, many of last year’s participants will achieve their goals of completing the Award. Congratulations to Marc, Grace and Lara for their wonderful achievement.

Donna then spoke of the benefits of participating in the Duke of Ed program, the great personal growth, learning and development of leadership skills and encouraged all Year 9 and above students to consider taking it up the program.

Glenaeon has offered the Duke of Ed through it Co-Curricular program for the past 11 years and it is gaining in popularity each year.
