The Duke of Edinburgh International Award

06 October 2016

We are extremely proud and honoured to offer our students such an exciting and challenging experience.

  • The International Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • The International Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • The International Duke of Edinburgh Award

The British International School, Abu Dhabi is proud to be running the Duke of Edinburgh International Award for our students in Years 10 -13. We successfully led three adventurous journeys during 2015/2016 to Fossil Rock and Al Ghail in Sharjah with over 30 students taking part in the award.

This year we are taking 39 students back to Fossil Rock to take part in the challenging journeys for both Bronze and Silver Award students. Students will be hiking 12-14km a day and camping in the dunes under the stars for 2 or 3 days for Bronze or Silver respectively. The Silver award students are also excited about going to Kasab, Musamdam in December to complete their Qualifying award in the stunning mountains of Oman.
