DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S INTERNATIONAL AWARD (DOFE)
We complement the rigour of our academic programme with wider learning experiences through the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award for young people over 13.5 years. Our school is a licensed Youth Engagement Society (YES) centre with International Award for Young People (IAYP) which offers the Award in India. The Award also provides an excellent platform to encourage students to participate in Community Service. Students have the opportunity to apply for age-appropriate level of the Award – Bronze/ Silver/ Gold – and in the process gain valuable experience in 4 specific areas: Physical recreation; Skills; Community Service; Adventurous Journey. For Gold level students have to complete a Residential Project in addition to participating in these four areas. Our teachers have been trained by IAYP as Award Leaders to support students in their pursuit of the Award. From 2020-21, it will be mandatory for Grade 8 students to apply for the Bronze level of the Award at the minimum.
