The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme has become increasingly popular at S107, providing an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding programme of personal development, focusing on a range of adventurous activities around Thailand and Asia.
It is open to students from Year 10 upwards, starting with the Bronze Award and moving on to Gold. Unlike many of the challenges the students face, this is very much a personal undertaking rather than a competition against others. Each participant’s programme is tailor-made to reflect their starting point, abilities and interests. These opportunities equip young people for life, regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. It pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements and commitment.
In order to qualify for the award, students must complete three sections for each level – service, skills, and physical recreation – as well as participate in an Adventurous Journey. Through these components, students are encouraged to develop new skills, contribute widely to the community over a prolonged period and develop positive lifestyle habits. We encourage all of our students to participate as an integral part of the Leadership and Service Curriculum.
