Duke of Edinburgh International Award

It has been a big fortnight for Duke of Ed, with students and alumnae achieving Gold Award and Year 9 heading off on their practice expedition.

Congratulations to Emma Flaherty (Year 12) who has been granted her Gold Award. Emma has shown her perseverance and initiative in order to complete the rigorous requirements of the Gold Award. Well done Emma on this fantastic achievement!

Well done to the 112 Year 9 students who completed their practice canoeing journey for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award last month. The practice journey is an important learning experience which will prepare the girls for their qualifying journey in August.

We’re thrilled on behalf of the LN alumnae who recently achieved their Duke of Edinburgh’s International Gold Award. Congratulations to Ashleigh, Luka, Gian, Bianca, Caitlin, Catherine, Lihara, Julia, Akshara, Sian and Jie Yi for this considerable achievement, which saw them learn new skills, push their limits, build and give back to their community. We were delighted to see some of them at last week’s ceremony, presented by her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of NSW. Well done to you all!

Students currently engaged in Duke of Edinburgh’s Award may wish to attend our Duke Drop In sessions – we’ll be holding drop-in sessions for students to come down and ask any questions or get any guidance they may need. Each Friday, in the first half of lunchtime, the School’s Duke of Ed Award Leaders will be available to provide all the assistance needed to smoothly work your way through the Award.
