The Duke of Ed is an enriching program inviting young people to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time, including skill development, physical recreation and community service. The internationally recognised award gives participants opportunity to design their own unique program centred around their interests and passions, and is entirely voluntary. At Cedars students also engage in overnight hiking journeys, developing leadership skills, team work and individual competencies. The award vision is for all young people in Australia to be empowered to explore their potential and achieve success.
Through this program students identify personal goals and, with the support of teachers and parents, work toward these outcomes. This pursuit of excellence has not only brought reward and recognition to individual students and the College but most importantly these achievements are a reflection of our collective commitment to bring glory to God through all we do.
