Duke of Edinburgh

2023 saw the Introduction of the Duke of Edinburgh at Kuranui College.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award equips rangatahi for promising futures by challenging young people to develop skills and tools to improve themselves – and their communities.

Participants set their own challenge. With guidance from Award Leaders, each young person is encouraged to examine themselves - their interests, their ambitions, and set challenges for our four Award sections; Voluntary Service, Physical Recreation, Skills and Adventurous Journey (along with Gold Residential – at Gold level only).

The Awards provide confidence, problem solving skills and the resilience to thrive in our ever-changing world
