The Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Aotearoa Award is a programme of activities designed to challenge young people. It helps develop self-reliance and self-awareness. Accepting the challenge is also a lot of fun.

There are 3 levels of the Award – Bronze, Silver and Gold. At each level the student is required to do some form of activity in each of the 4 sections: Service, Adventurous Journey, Skills and Physical Recreation. Within the various sections there is choice from a wide range of activities. It gives a student the chance to choose an activity that appeals or one which they may view as a challenge.
