Duke of Edinburgh

Duke of Edinburgh Award has grown into a 'must do' extra-curriculur activity in Balmain Campus. Every year, there are 2 levels running, Bronze and Silver, consisting of Year 10 and Year 9 students. 

Award assessor

What is an assessor?

Assessors are adult volunteers (must be 18 years of age and over) who assist the participant with their activities for an Award Section i.e. Skill. Assessors help the participant plan their activities and set goals.

Upon completion of the activity, assessors write a brief final report and "sign off" the activity.

For more information on award, assessors please refer to the following page on the DoE website:

Teachers acting as assessors

A number of teachers have volunteered to act as an assessor for students. The teacher must hold substantial qualifications and/or experience in their field. For example, Ms Tricase (PDHPE) could not assess a student's progress or skills in photography, but is able to be an assessor for physical activity. A number of current silver and bronze award students have utilised the experience and availability of teachers at school in completing their skill or physical activity section of their award.

Teacher/Assessors @ Balmain (DOCX 16KB) document provides an overview of the current teachers at Balmain who are also active assessors for the Duke of Edinburgh Award this year.
