Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award

Congratulations Brittney Barnard and Courtney Pratt-Young who both received their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, from the Governor General at a presentation during the July school holidays.

For my Adventurous Journey section, I tramped twice a year with staff and an amazing group of friends that had been created over the years I did Duke of Ed. I have completed tramps in the Waitakere Ranges, Kaimai Ranges, Bridge to Nowhere, Lake Waikaremoana, Tongariro and the Heaphy Track. Each of these tracks possessed a different beauty to the other and provided me with amazing memories and experiences. Overall, I found the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to be the most rewarding yet challenging experience during my high school years.

​I enjoyed all aspects of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award! As a person who loves challenges and the outdoors, it was everything I am passionate about. I liked that the Service aspect of the Award gave me a chance to give back to my local community, and I also liked that I was able to become close friends with the other participants who were doing the Award. The highlight for me was my Gold qualifying expedition – walking the Kepler Track. It was picturesque scenery, with snow in parts, native wildlife and nothing but good times and brilliant memories.
