Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award Scheme
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award Scheme has quickly been established as a fundamental element of student life at Ormiston Senior College.
The scheme is a comprehensive, co-curricular programme that provides opportunities for students to develop skills in leadership, self-reliance and responsibility along with a sense of place in the wider world. Students take up a new skill, such as learning a musical instrument, join a sports team or dance group, and give back to the community through our service programme. Students also undertake an adventurous journey.
The Bronze and Silver Awards challenge participants in four areas of life:
Giving help in the local community
Any non-physical hobby, skill or interest
Sport, dance and fitness
Training for, practising and completing a journey on foot, horseback, boat or cycle.
