Duke of Edinburgh

We are delighted to have Duke of Edinburgh available to all girls at SHC. Seven girls are currently working  towards their Bronze Medals.

“On Saturday 14 September, the Duke of Edinburgh girls got the opportunity to go on a training journey which was accompanied by Ms Abby Harrison and the Bronze Duke of Ed students from Taradale High School.

Throughout the day we learnt how to navigate maps in an outdoors environment and cook our lunch on gas cookers, which for some was a new skill and for others a recap on previous experience.

The Sacred Heart Duke of Ed girls are looking forward to our qualifying journey which will take place later in November this year when we will tramp into Te Puia Lodge.”
