Congratulations to alumnae Eliza Mignot (YG 2017) and Erin Hynson (YG 2017) who received their Duke of Edinburgh’s International Gold Award from His Royal Highness The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex KG GCVO at a ceremony at Government House on Friday 6 April.
To achieve this award Eliza and Erin have dedicated many hours to voluntary activities across the areas of service, skill, physical recreation, an adventurous journey and a residential project.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award presents a balanced, non-competitive program of voluntary activities that encourage personal discovery, growth, resilience, perseverance, responsibility and community service. The Award challenges and encourages young people to become mature and active citizens who positively contribute to society, through activities that inspire them.
Well done, Erin and Eliza!
