Chevalier offers the opportunity to partake in additional activities facilitated by the College, and conducted by external organisations.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award empowers young Australians aged 14-24 to explore their full potential and find their purpose, passion and place in the world, regardless of their location or circumstance. The Award is a self-development program available to all young people and is entirely voluntary. It is non-competitive and encourages young people to set and achieve goals at a level appropriate to their needs and aspirations.
YouthAdvance has partnered with Chevalier College to help deliver the award to students in Years 9-12.
