Emma Rowe (Year 12) Madelyn Kelcey (Year 12) and Sarah Julian (Class of 2013) received their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards on Saturday night at a ceremony at the Melbourne Town Hall.

The Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award requires participants to
complete 12 months of:
- Progressive improvement in an aspect of physical recreation
- Development of a special ‘skill/talent’
- Completion of Community Service
They must also train, plan and undertake a 4 day ‘adventurous journey’, as well as participating in a 5 day residential project (which involves staying away from home and working in a shared environment).
Congratulations girls, on a fantastic achievement!
