Duke of Edinburgh

CVAS is a strong supporter of this prestigious worldwide program for young people. This is very popular in the School and runs throughout the year and is supported by our Duke of Edinburgh leader who assists in all aspects in the delivery of the Award for students in Years 9-12. Students develop their camping craft and navigation skills essential for the expedition section of the Award, during sport time and then put these skills to the test in two bushwalks organised by the school. Students have to pursue three sections of The Award in their own time, Physical Recreation, Skill and Volunteering and they are responsible for logging their own hours online.
