Duke of Edinburgh Award
Students from Marcellin College Randwick are encouraged to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. An internationally recognised qualification, the Award requires students to dedicate themselves to four different sections. These are Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and the Adventurous Journey. Students must complete these commitments in their own time and keep track of their progress. The students develop a sense of independence as they seek to organise opportunities and assessors.
