British International School, Phuket students have the opportunity to learn valuable life skills and experience some wonderful outdoor adventures on their path to earning The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – an award The Duke liked to describe as a “do-it-yourself growing up kit”. The Duke founded The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with Kurt Hahn in 1956 in order to give young people “a sense of responsibility to themselves and their communities”.
The Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards are open to all students at BISP in Year 10 and above. In this series of photos, our Silver Award students are sailing off the coast of Phuket. Over a number of trips, these students learn how to sail dinghies and trimarans, as well as navigate a nautical journey. They must log their final adventurous journey and throughout their training record their recreational experience, skills acquired and service to the community.
