"It’s not the destination, it’s the journey”

Hi, my name is Annie. I’m 18 years old and I’m from Beijing World Youth Academy. I am proud to be a Duke of Edinburgh silver award holder.

“It’s not the destination, it’s the journey”-I think this quote is applicable to all my experiences throughout the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Over this whole journey, I learnt how critical perseverance was in everything I do. In order to accomplish something, you need commitment and continuity. I learnt the importance of time management. Everyone and anyone can make time for doing things they like—they just have to manage their time wisely. But perhaps the thing I deem the most crucial is, resilience. I have faced so many hardships throughout this Award, but I always found a way and time to face these challenges head on. And this acquired skill is probably why I am where I am today.

大家好, 我叫王一倪, 今年18岁,来自北京世界青年学院。我很自豪能成为爱丁堡公爵银奖得主。

“这不是目的地,而是旅程”- 我认为这句话适用于我在爱丁堡公爵奖上的所有经历。在整个参与爱奖经历中,我意识到毅力对我所做的每件事都是多么重要; 要完成某件事,是需要投入參與和有连续性; 我学会了时间管理的重要性, 每个人都可以腾出时间做自己喜欢的事情,但必须明智地管理自己的时间. 而我认为成功关键仍是在於韧性。在參與愛獎中,我经历了很多困难,但我學會了, 無論多困難总能找到一个方法和时间来直面这些挑战, 這些學習中的啟發成就了今天的我。。。

Through the efforts of these four years, I have grown a lot and gained a lot.

Dear leaders, teachers, parents, and fellow students,

Good afternoon! I am Maria, a graduate from BCCSC. I am very happy to share my experience in attending the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

I remembered that I was excited and nervous when I first started taking DofE adventure journey, it was my first outdoor adventure in my life. My classmates and I climbed mountains, set fires, cooked meals, pitched tents, learned many life skills. In the subsequent series of outdoor training, I not only learned to survive in the wild but also exercise my physical fitness. I even crossed Kubuqi desert, learned how to build a grid to prevent the sandstorm. To get out my comfort zone, I tried the rapid descent of the dam that helped me overcome my fear of heights. In the adventure journey, I not only learned a lot of survival skills in the wild but also gained the friendship and trained my leadership.

In addition to outdoor classes, completing the DofE Gold Award also requires completing weekly logging online in physical skills and services. In this process, I learned to persevere. During my weekly service, Ialso experienced the joy of helping others. Both the skills and fitness programs will benefit me as I grow up.

After four years of unremitting efforts, I finally got the Gold Award of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. I would like to thank all the teachers who helped me with my adventures journey and with the completion ofthe awards. Through the efforts of these four years, I have grown a lot and gained a lot.

Thank you! 谢谢大家!

尊敬的领导、老师、家长,亲爱的同学们:

大家下午好!我是来自北京中加学校的毕业生于滢,很高兴能在这里分享我参加爱丁堡公爵国际奖的心得和感受。

参加爱奖我从铜奖开始,爱奖的其中一项挑战是户外探索, 这让我第一次参加户外探索活动, 我很激动也很紧张,活动中我和同学们一起爬山、生火做饭、搭帐篷,学会了很多生活技能,还让我变得更加勇敢了。在后来的系列户外活动中,我不仅学会了野外生存的技能,还锻炼了我的体能, 我还穿越了库布齐沙漠, 学会了网格治沙及在大坝速降让我克服了恐高的感觉。在参与爱奖户外探索活动中,我不仅学会了很多野外生存的知识,还收获了友谊,锻炼了我的领导力。

除了户外课程,完成爱奖金奖还需要完成每周体能技能, 服务的任务, 以及金奖团体生活项目。在这个过程中我学会了坚持。在每周的服务过程中,我也体会到了帮助他人的快乐。技能和体能项目都会在我以后的成长过程中使我受益匪浅。

经过四年不懈的努力,我终于拿到了爱丁堡公爵国际奖金奖。我想感谢所有户外探索和在完成奖项上给予我帮助的老师们。通过这四年的努力,我成长了很多,也收获了很多。

Award Leader is a guiding light

DofE social service session aim to build up the sense of the award participants to serve the community and care about others. Mr. Rudd shared how Rong Qiao Sedbergh School connected the community and charity resources, let the award participants have more choice to serve the community and the disadvantage people. Through to serve the disadvantage people, raise the participants the awareness of taking care of others and the community. As a award leader need to guide them and assist them to achieve their own goal.

分享如何透过爱奖的社会服务项目, 培养年青一代的公益心. 他举了融侨赛德伯学校为例, 学校联系社会资源, 让爱奖参与者在计划社会服务时有更多选择, 而同学有机会跟弱势群体接触, 有助加深社会及该群体的理解, 这样能让他们学关顾社会及别人. 作为爱奖导师如何协助爱奖参与者坚持达到自己的目标起了至关重要的作用.
