Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award

At Rodney College we offer all three levels of the Award with 20 students taking part in the programme. The Award is a programme of activities designed to challenge you, and the only person you are competing with is yourself.

This year we will be running training camps with outdoor guide Steven Orchard and a variety of expeditions around the country.

During term 1 our gold group did their training and in the second week of the holidays will be tramping in Tongariro National Park.

Our Bronze group will be going on a training weekend on the weekend of the second week of term two. This will prepare them for their pretrip to the Coromandel in term 3. Their qualifying expedition will be held over challenge week in December.
