Duke of Edinburgh Award
For students from Years 9-12
Duke of Edinburgh 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 Duke of Ed program. 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 in the scheme, 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.
