The Duke of Edinburgh’s (DoE) International Award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people, bringing together practical experiences and life skills to create committed global citizens and equipping young people for life. It is a youth awards program founded in the United Kingdom in 1956 by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, which has since expanded to 144 nations. The awards recognize adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises modeled on Kurt Hahn’s solution to the "Six Declines of Modern Youth." It enables young people to demonstrate self-development within an internationally recognized framework. It equips all young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. 

Participation in DoE programs and the number of awards achieved has grown every year where over 8 million young people worldwide have taken part since 1956. The criteria for gaining an Award are based on each participant's individual improvement and potential at the starting point of the Award. Even if an Award is not attained, just being involved brings new friends, new knowledge and new adventures. The Award program has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each requires an increasing level of commitment and effort.

There is no competition between participants. The only people with whom they compete are themselves where they were pushed to their personal limits. In SSIS, we encourage everyone to embrace a growth mindset and to aim for continuous learning and excellence.

Fortunately, four students successfully finished the program under Stonyhurst Southville International School-Malarayat Campus. These four students are the first awardees of the school

The following students were awarded the BRONZE STANDARD AWARD during the awarding ceremony held last September 19, 2016 at the Governor’s Palace in Batangas City:

MARIAN C. GUERRA

EDEN WANG

ELAINE P. CAOIBES

 

Marian, Eden and Elaine were able to complete all four sections comprising the Bronze Award: service, skills, physical recreation and adventurous journey. Each participant had an option on what to do for each section; while for the adventurous journey, the group went to Mamburao, Mindoro last May completing the said program. The students were mentored and guided by Ms. Leah Ilagan and Ms. Llyre Magsino. Congratulations Kings!
