 A group of Trinity College School students has recently been recognized for achievements within the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards programme.

Grade 10 student Lauren McCartney and Grade 11 student Connor McGorman earned their Silver awards. This level of award requires students to undertake 30 hours of community service, a three-day expedition, 12 months spent on learning a skill and 12 months of participation in physical activity.

Bronze level awards were presented to 18 students: Grade 10 students Liv Hodder, Spencer Main, Alana Picov, Conrad Speckert, Linea Strong and Ainsley Wilson; and Grade 12 students Nathan Amaral, Carlyle Apps, Maddy Baker, Marie Duguay, Jon Hughes, Alex Konn, Irene Lee, Shifali Narang, Spencer Ritchie, Sarah Webber, Harriet Widdowson and Kenzia Wong. To achieve the Bronze award, students completed at least 15 hours of community service, a two-day expedition, six months of learning a skill and six months of participation in a physical activity.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards (DOE) programme, which was founded in 1956 by His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, and introduced in Canada in 1963, encourages young people to be active and to participate in new activities in four areas: community service, skills, physical recreation and adventurous journey. To date, almost seven million young people in 130 countries have taken part in this programme which promotes the value of a well-rounded life.

TCS is pleased to support students as they work towards their personal goals within the programme. Over the February break, a group of students and teachers will head to Algonquin Park for a trip which can qualify as the Silver or Bronze level expedition requirement.
