Boonah State High offers the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to students from Grade 7 to 12 who then take up the opportunities offered to achieve personal success.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a very worthwhile program to be involved in. Not only do you learn new skills, get fit, and do things in the community but you also get the opportunity to go on exciting expeditions like…
Sea kayaking with the whales at Fraser Island
Canoeing the white water rapids of the Nymboida River
Sailing around Moreton Bay
Camping and bushwalking at Girraween
Climbing Mt Barney and the list goes on.
Students work through Bridge, Bronze, Silver & Gold levels and commit themselves to 3 months, 6 months and 12 months of learning new skills, participating in physical recreational activities and providing community service. These assist to develop confidence, self-motivation and leadership potential which helps for a successful future.
