A memory for life: Duke of Edinburgh Award students get to meet HRH Prince Edward!
Two lucky individuals participating in our Duke of Edinburgh Award (DOE) program have had the chance to meet Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, during his tour of northern Adelaide during SA Youth Week.
DOE participants Aria and Travis, our CEO Graham Brown and staff from our Youth, Education & Training Services watched and waited in great anticipation for His Royal Highness to grace the Twelve25 Salisbury Youth Enterprise Centre with his presence on Tuesday 17 April.
Prepped with props for talking points including a backpack and photos, Aria and Travis were given the opportunity to discuss their activities and experiences with the Prince.
The Queen’s youngest son visited Salisbury as part of his National tour to attend the Commonwealth Games and promote the DOE Award scheme, named after his father Prince Philip more than 60 years ago.
Baptist Care SA’s DOE Award program challenges students to engage in the community, participate in physical activity and go on an adventurous journey. The program portfolio helps students learn about overcoming difficulties, building confidence and resilience, and taking responsibility for their choices.
