Duke of Edinburgh Awards at Coolum High


​Coolum High is a registered operator of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, a youth development program for 14 to 25 year olds that is recognised world-wide.  Participation in the Award is aimed at building self-esteem, developing teamwork and leadership skills, and for young people to engage in positive activities which contribute to local communities.

The Award program is broken into three levels based on age, and you can join in at any stage -  Bronze (from 14 yrs), Silver (from 15 yrs) and Gold (from 16 yrs).  All Award activities are to be completed outside of school hours, and often students are already doing them after school. Completion of any level of the Award also looks good on resumes, and is valued by employers in our community.

In the next few weeks, students will be hearing more information about the Award and benefits for them.  Please contact Mr Lennox, or Miss Goodacre to find out more.
