Duke of Edinburgh's International Award and the Bridge Award


​The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award​

Alexandra Hills SHS is proud to introduce the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award which is an exciting international youth development program aimed at empowering students between age 14 to 25 and encouraging them to attain their full potential. The Award celebrated 50 years in Australia in 2012 and is part of an international network of over 143 countries that has over 8 million Awardees.

The Duke of Edinburgh has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold, with each level being progressively more challenging. Each person who takes part in the Award learns a skill, improves their physical wellbeing, volunteers in their community and goes on an adventure.

AHSHS students achieving this award increase both educational and career opportunities through learning to make independent decisions and negotiate priorities through participation, taking responsibility for their goals, becoming engaged in their local communities and learning to persevere and overcome barriers to success.

For further information relating to this award please contact Mr Robinson through the school office or head to the following website for more information (
