The Bronze Award is the first level of the Duke of Ed pathway. Students start the award by choosing an activity to do in each of the four sections:
- Voluntary Service
- Physical Recreation
- Adventurous journey
Students are required to log 13 hours for Voluntary Service, Physical Recreation, and Skills. One of these activities needs to be selected as a major activity and will require 26 hours to be logged. The aim for each section is for it to be consistent work. Therefore, students should aim to log one hour per week or two hours per fortnight. For each activity students are required to have an assessor, this is someone who can verify they have completed their activities. Assessor’s should not be family members, it should be a coach, instructor or teacher at school. The school will also run a Bronze Adventurous Journey which will include the practice and the qualifier journey. Due to the impact of COVID there is also the option to complete a virtual Adventurous Journey from home.
Students will set their goals and record their hours via the Online Record Book (ORB). The ORB can be accessed via the link here.
