At All Saints Grammar, we are committed to fostering an educational environment where students are able to demonstrate intellectual rigour and character values, be emotionally balanced and feel connected to school life. To empower our students to realise their full potential, our Secondary students are offered the opportunity to participate in the popular Duke of Edinburgh International Award; a program that empowers students to explore their potential and find their purpose, passion and place in the world.
Every student who takes part in the program will learn a skill, improve their physical wellbeing, volunteer in their community and undertake Adventurous Journeys within a team. Students are able to design their own program and set their own goals according to the Award’s requirements.
Moving forward to 2021, all Year 9 students will begin their Bronze Award. Year 10 and 11 school leaders will continue their chosen program (Silver or Gold). Some of the skills our students have chosen to develop include learning sign language, playing the piano, coding and cooking. Physical recreation activities include fencing, Greek Dancing and figure skating. Some ASG students will be assisting in their local library, supporting people in need and volunteering their time at their local Hellenic Association.
ASG students participating in The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in 2021 will be guided and supported by trained Award Leaders, Assessors, supervisors and mentors.
