Today it’s official: I’ve handed in my Duke of Edinburgh Gold level adventurous journey report, record book, and form. With that, I’ve finished my last level of Duke of Ed and the program as a whole! While most of my teammates handed in their reports earlier, my academic schedule didn’t allow me to work on the extensive report and book until late February. Over the past 4 years of my participation in Duke of Edinburgh, I can honestly say I’ve learned more than I expected about myself, my peers, and the environment around me. I can’t possibly list all I’ve learned, and I will not attempt to try, knowing that I cannot do the program or my experiences justice. Instead, I’ve attached some photos of my Duke of Ed experience for all three levels: bronze, silver and gold, spanning from grade 9 until last June. I look forward to applying the things I’ve learned in Duke of Ed to my post-graduate life, and thank Ms. McTavish for her endless support and guidance in the planning and execution of all of our trips!
