Arcadia College is proud to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh Award, supporting programs across the campus.

This award is a powerful youth development program where students follow and develop their passion within the following domains;

Voluntary Service:  Volunteering time to assist others or the community.

Physical Recreation: Improving fitness and discovering new sports or active recreational activity

Skill:  Undertake a new interest or hobby or extending on a current role.

Adventurous Journey:  Undertaking a journey in an unfamiliar environment and creating opportunities for team building through sharing planning, role allocation, problem solving and accommodation physical and personality differences.

One completion of the required hours of each level, students must complete their adventurous journey.  The aim of this section is to provide students with the opportunity to learn more about the wider environment, as well as to develop their self-confidence, team work and health.  Participants are taken out of their comfort zone in an unfamiliar environment but kept within a safe and secure setting, achieved through suitable training and supervision by Arcadia College’s Adventurous Journey Supervisors (AJS).

Arcadia College tailors the Duke of Edinburgh Award to support students achieving their personal best.  Taking responsibility for their goals and choices, The Bridge Award is offered to the Junior School as a positive introduction to the program.
