The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at Marlborough College Malaysia

The Duke of Edinburghs International Award at Marlborough College Malaysia

This term saw Marlborough College Malaysia’s first Silver IA Expedition set off to Langkawi. The expedition was a challenging journey, incorporating kayaking, trekking, mountain biking, and abseiling. Self-sufficient in food and shelter, this was the climax of the pupils’ hard-earned Silver Award overseen by the Asia Pacific Headquarters in Sydney. Marlborough College is proud to be an Independent Operator, licensed to run and assess the award in Malaysia. The International Award has three stages, Bronze, Silver and Gold and requires a huge commitment from the pupils who complete Service, Physical Challenge, and Skills sections over a six-month period. The pupils and teachers should be proud of this huge achievement as they look to the future of the Gold Award and welcome new Bronze candidates later in the year.
