The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

Mount Lawley Senior High School is proud to offer The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award to our students. The Award is an internationally recognised program that acknowledges the diverse activities and skills which participants are committed to. During their time achieving the Award, a student will develop new skills and interests; meet new friends while strengthening current friendships and be rewarded for their efforts.

The Award is a leading structured youth development program, empowering all young Australians between age 14 to 24 to explore their full potential regardless of their location or circumstance. It is a fully inclusive program and has no social, political, or religious affiliations. Students are able to use both extracurricular school activities and club or personal pursuits in the community towards their Award.

Although the Award means different things to different people, one big advantage is that it is immediately recognisable and highly regarded by companies, educational institutions and many other organisations around the world. The 'Duke of Ed' award demonstrates a well-rounded and committed individual who is diligent, confident and reliable; all traits that can be difficult to project onto a CV. Most of all, the Award is designed to be fun and fulfilling and Mount Lawley is keen to ensure this is the case.

In 2021 Mount Lawley Senior High School will select a trial group of 20 students to commence their Bronze Award.
