News & Events

We were stoked to have Sam Taylor and George Barr-Brown come see us today at the National Office, where we held a short, impromptu Bronze Award ceremony. Sam and George attend St. Bernard's College in Lower Hutt, but have completed their Bronze Award through The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award National Office.

Last week 9 students doing their Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award spent a week at Cue Haven, South Kaipara , participating in a range of activities from building benches to track maintenance. You can read more about the week and the work that was achieved here.

Remember to check out the list of Adventurous Journey Training, Practice and Qualifying Journey opportunities being offered through our range of Accredited Outdoor Providers! We will update the website as we hear about new courses being offered around the country.

Congratulations to Fiona Boorer from Huanui College and to Margaret McLauchlan from GirlGuiding NZ - Pencarrow Region, who are the lucky winners of the Award Leaders' Survey prize draw. Thank you to everyone who completed this survey.
