Jarvis Magnet - 1996

The Duke OfEdinburgh's

The Duke OfEdinburgh's Award Young CIJnIJdiIJn~' ChlJl/sngs There are 22 students at Jarvi s who are currently enrolled in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award program. At the Bronze level are: Nada Gatalo. Kal e Gorsline and Leesa Kwon g. At the Silver level are: Erika Allen. Radu BUlan. David Seepersad. Amy Sedgwick Karen Sionim and Anna Strauss. Taking on Gold are: Nitai Desselle. Maggie Gilmour. Chris Lawley. Marth a McDonald. Jessica Price. Julie Ralhan. Rishma Somji, Simon Strau ss. Omar Tan and Pieter Van Dijk . Each level of the award consists of four sections: physical fitness. skills. community serv ice. and expedition. The Gold and Sil ver levels also requi re a residential project. At the hardest level. the physical fitness section requires 50 hours of any physical activity (sorry. gym class doesn 't count!) over a period of at least 25 weeks. This includes any team sports or hobbies such as cycling, swimming or even rock climbin g. For the skills section of the Gold Award. over a period of a year and a half, partici ­ pants are expected to learn and pracuce a skill. Some exa mples that have been done in the past are learning sign language. taking up an instrument. keyboarding and singing. The co mmunity service section requ ires 90 hours of volunteer work in a minimum of a year and a half. Of cou rse this includes worki ng for chari ties and hospitals. but other activities such as tutoring. wor king on the yearbook or newspaper and being on Student Cou ncil also count. Essentially. any lime spent working for the co mmunity without pay can be used for this sectio n. The most exci ting pan of the program is the expedition. For the Gold Award. there are a minimum of three practice trips to be comp leted. and then an expedition lasting for at least four days and three nights must be undertake n. Depending on the mode of transportation (i.e. mountain biking. canoeing. rock climbing etc..) there are different lengths that have to be travelled. Obviously, completing the D.E.A. is no easy task. It requires a long-term commitment and perseverance (not to mention a lot of paperwork'). Once completed. it is one of the most rewarding experiences possible. The beauty of the Award is that it's cumulative. meaning that the hours you put forth towards co mpleting the Bronze Award go towa rd the Silver. and finally the Gold. It is not surprisi ng that with such a challenging progra m. many Jarvisites exce l in it and attain Gold. The key is to start early. For those of you partici pating in clubs or teams here at Jarvis. you've probably done quite a bit towards your award already. it's just a mailer of signing up. Information can be obtained through Mrs.Schindler in Room 4 10. So the next time you see the ad in the Daily Magnet. go. sign up. and challenge yoursel f.
