Duke of Edinburgh 60th Anniversary Royal Reception

On Saturday 14 September Kirrawee High School Dukes Award Unit was invited to the Youth and Leaders Royal Reception for the Duke of Edinburgh Award at New South Wales Government House.

In attendance was His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, the chair of the Duke of Edinburgh International Award Foundation, the Honourable Margaret Beazley NSW Governor, along with other esteemed guests and award units from around New South Wales. Kirrawee High School was represented by Sarah (Gold award participant and Silver and Bronze award recipient) and Ms Thomson (Award Coordinator).

The evening saw His Royal Highness talk to all award participants and show a genuine interest in their service, skill, physical recreation and adventurous journey’s. He was warm in his interactions and focussed on the award participants and their achievements. It was great to see His Royal Highness engage with all attendees and participants left the event enthused and world ready!

Thanks must go to the New South Wales Duke of Edinburgh Award Office Members for organising the wonderful event!
