The Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) presented the Duke of Edinburgh Award to several Bishop Reding students who completed their first chapter o​f the programme.

Each year, the Duke of Edinburgh Award is granted to students who complete the prestigious self-development programme available to all young people, aged 14-24. The programme aims to inspire and help direct individual change, through personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance and responsibility.

There are three levels to the award (Bronze, Silver, and Gold), and each requires an increasing level of commitment and effort. Each level is composed of four sections: the Service Section, the Adventurous Journey Section, the Skills Section, and the Physical Recreation Section.

This year, a number of students from Bishop P.F. Reding Catholic Secondary School successfully received the Bronze Award, and all of its encompassing requirements:

  • Madeleine Delanty (Grade 9)
  • Michelle Tomczyk (Grade 10)
  • Leah Duijvestein (Grade 11)
  • Emma Gmazel (Grade 11)
  • Maisie Harrington (Grade 11)
  • Daniel Jolic (Grade 11)
  • Nikola Kucera (Grade 11)
  • Hannah Mathews (Grade 11)
  • Aashraya Mehta (Grade 12)

The Duke of Edinburgh Award was founded by His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in the United Kingdm in 1956, and began in Canada in 1963. The programme has grown internationally, offered in 140 countries, and currently has 44,000 Canadian participants each year!

Congratulations to the award recipients from HCDSB - we commend you as you continue your Duke of Edinburgh journey!
