Going for gold
May 24, 2018 | The Honourable J. Michel Doyon, Lieutenant Governor of Quebec was on campus today to present the Duke of Ed awards.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Program is an international program that promotes the development of personal discipline, international understanding, leadership, and responsibility. There are three levels of recognition for the award—bronze, silver, and gold—each having specific requirements for community service, skills building, physical recreation, and outdoor adventuring. While Canadians have until their 25th birthday to complete the requirements, most BCS students are able to earn the award within their time here.
111 pins were awarded today, including four well-deserved Gold Awards to Form VI students Donovan and Peter and Form VII students Kamila and Krystal. Since June 2005 we have awarded 1,450 pins!
