The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Celebrations
Over 100 Doha College students have been honoured in a celebratory ceremony, having successfully completed their bronze and silver stages of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. The International Award is a self-developmental programme available to all young people worldwide, equipping them with life skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities and their world.
To receive their certificate, students completed over 7,200 hours of purposeful activity; including over 2,100 hours of community service, over 2,700 hours of physical recreation, and over 2,400 hours perfecting a skill. For the physical recreation requirement, students participated in sports or other physical activities that focused on the improvement of health and fitness. For the service activity, students dedicated their time to benefit the community surrounding them in various ways including volunteering at a centre for people with disabilities, working with environmental clubs, participating in peer tutoring or helping in the library. The skill requirement encourages the development of personal interests as well as practical and social skills. This ranged from learning a language or a musical instrument, cooking, scuba diving, drama and theatre, art and calligraphy, to pursuits such as political studies and Model United Nations.
