The Duke of Edinburgh Scheme is a well established, internationally recognized qualification that requires competency across Adventure, Skill, Service and Physical activity. 

Year 10 students are automatically entered for Bronze level but it is up to them to ensure they get each strand signed off.

Silver and Gold awards are optional and there is a small fee covering the cost. The Gold award also has a residential component. The Gold award is presented by the Governor General at Government House.

  • The Spirit of Adventure

    Several berths are available each year for King’s students to do a ten day sailing voyage on the Spirit of New Zealand. These are ideally for senior students looking to complete their Gold Duke of Edinburgh.
