Duke of Edinburgh Award


The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is one of the most popular extra-curricular activities offered at Turramurra High School. Students start at the Bronze Level in Year 9. The Award encourages the participant to set personal goals and achieve them. Along the way, they learn about qualities like responsibility, trust and improve their ability to plan and organise themselves.

Participants choose their own activities and se their own goals within four general areas.

  • Expeditions: to encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery.
  • Service: to encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery.
  • Skills: to encourage the development of personal interests and practical skills.
  • Physical Recreation: to encourage participation in physical recreation and improvement of performance.

Each challenge requires a special dedication, both physical and mental. Success in the Award Program comes through a conscious decision to accept and take up the challenges.

“Turramurra is a fantastic school which allows me the opportunity to participate in programs like Duke of Ed which I know not all schools have available."
