Year 12 student Charlotte Field is the toast of Peninsula Grammar after winning the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Charlotte was presented with the award recently at a ceremony in Sydney attended by the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward. She dedicated more than three years to complete her Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.

“Receiving my Gold Award in Sydney was surreal,” Charlotte said. “His Royal Highness, the Earl of Wessex, said that we could all walk a few inches taller after the awards as it was an incredible feat to have undertaken and we should all be so proud.”

Charlotte’s five components for the Gold Award included obtaining a skill, doing voluntary work, participating in a physical activity, going on a camp and completing a residential journey. “For my skill I learnt yin-yoga; for my physical I trained and completed the 2018 Melbourne Marathon; my camp was at Phillip Island; I volunteered with St John Ambulance; and my residential journey was my French exchange trip,” she said. 

“What really motivated me to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards was the great advantages it provides to prepare you for life after school. One of my proudest achievements was being offered a university place on the back of this award.”

Charlotte said completing the Bronze, Silver and Gold awards provided her with a massive confidence boost. “I realised that I could do anything I wanted. All I had to do was have a go.”
