The Duke of Edinburgh Award

Chatswood High School students in Year 9 to Year 12 have the opportunity to participate in The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.

The Award is an enriching program that invites young people to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time. Participation is entirely voluntary and is structured so students can design their own unique program centred on their interests and passions.

Students are able to participate in three award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each award has four sections:

  • Physical recreation
  • Skills
  • Service
  • Adventurous journeys.

Students choose an activity in these four areas and document their regular participation in their chosen area over a period of three to twelve months.

Students in year 9 complete the Bronze Award, Year 10 students complete Silver and Year 11 and 12 students work through Gold over a 2-year period.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is about setting goals. These goals are realised with persistence, determination and resilience and will see the student become better prepared for life's challenges in the future.

Enquiries can be directed to the CHS Duke of Edinburgh Coordinators (Samuel Sun, Justin Yang),

2024 information

Registrations for 2024 will be accepted from Term 1 Week 6 until Term 1 Week 11. The hiking component is organised based on enrolled numbers, so it is very important students have enrolled during this time to ensure a placement with their peers on the hike.

Adventurous Journey hiking dates are confirmed once participant numbers are finalised at the end of Term 1. Currently we are looking to have a Bronze group heading out in Term 2 and other groups in Term 4.
