The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

For students from Years 9-12

The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award participants are required to complete four sections at each level: Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey. In Gold level, participants also complete a Residential Project.

Girls at Danebank are very involved in the The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award. Those who take part develop great leadership and organisational skills as well as making a valuable contribution to the wider community. They also learn to persevere and step outside of their comfort zones.

Danebank is one of the top schools delivering the Award, globally, when measured by completion rates and participation. The number of girls who receive awards, bronze, silver and gold, is extraordinary. Gold Awards are presented by the Governor at Government House in Sydney.

By participating in The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award students embark on the education continuum that is a life changing journey embedded in personal growth, challenge, connection to peers, life skills, and service.
