Academic Enrichment Programs

The Academic Enrichment Programs and Clubs take place outside of school hours or during lunchtimes and general periods.

The programs include:

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is open to all young people aged 14-24. It is solely a co-curricular activity and is undertaken primarily in the student’s own time. Key elements of the program are Physical Recreation, Skills, Voluntary Service and Adventurous Journey. Once the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award has been achieved, students are encouraged to progress to the Silver and Gold Awards as they continue their studies in Years 9, 10 and beyond.
