Horsham College applaud Duke of Edinburgh medalists


ACHIEVERS APLENTY: Horsham College students who successfully completed their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award gained recognition at a whole-school assembly last week.

The 21 students received a certificate of achievement, badge and complementary ‘Essence of The Experience’ book for completing the first level of the internationally recognised leadership program.

College Duke of Edinburgh co-ordinator Paul Denson said Horsham College offered the bronze award level to year nine students as an additional elective, with students needing to complete two three-month and one six-month commitment in areas of recreation, community service and skill acquisition, to pass.

He said it was exciting to see the program become increasingly popular over the years, with 2020 registration set to again exceed last year’s numbers.
