A couple of Senior School students join an elite group of dedicated individuals after completing an international challenge. Competing over the holidays, the students will now progress this year.

Congratulations to James Young and Ave Rounsley (pictured) on completing of their Duke of Edinburgh International Bronze Awards.  They join Alysha Gahankari, Isabelle Chang, Jennifer Yeung, Leo Kelly Correa, Megan Cattell, Rishi Veeramachaneni and Yanis Nicholau who have all completed the Bronze over 2021. Now six students will progress onto the Silver level in 2022.

The Award programme is one of individual challenge. It presents young people with a programme of voluntary activities that encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility and service to the community. Each person who completes the Award learns a skill, becomes more physically active, volunteers in their community and undertakes a team adventure.

This semesters intake is closing next week with a limited number of spots remaining – If interested, please contact the Outdoor Education Co-ordinator David Maskell dmaskell@somerset.qld.edu.au
