The Duke of Edinburgh International Award
The DofE is an initiative to drive Holistic Education. It is perhaps the most widely recognized non scholastic achievement for young people.
Ambassador School is an IAC (Independent Award Centre) for Duke of Edinburgh International Award and has been licensed to run the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme from the coming academic year 2013-2014.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award. It brings together the practical experience and life skills to create committed global citizens and equip young people for life.
Since it was founded by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 1956, over eight million people have participated in the Award in over 140 countries and territories.
The programme will help support and complement the existing programmes that promote personal and social skills at Ambassador School. We encourage all senior students to enrol for this programme.
The programme provides our students an opportunity to achieve personal excellence.
Student would need to set their goals in each of the 4 components of the Award and work towards them with a mentor. The achievements will be their own, and are not benchmarked against anyone else. For each level, participants have to complete the requirements of each of the 4 different sections. Qualifying standards are measured in terms of progress, proficiency and sustained efforts.
How does it fit into our school life?
The programme is about being recognized for things that most of our students are ALREADY doing. The Award offers a framework for them to focus and direct their interests, learn, improve their abilities and encourage them to challenge themselves.
What you get out of it?
Achieving the award gives students a cutting edge for university admissions. It reflects the fact that the student has leadership qualities, integrity, a social conscience and a willingness to take on a challenge. We encourage children of the defined age group to sign up.
The World Scholar’s Cup
The World Scholar's Cup (WSC) is an international team academic tournament with students participating from over 40 countries. The World Scholar's Cup has attracted what it calls "a global community of future scholars and leaders", and promotes that it allows participants to "discover strengths and skills you never knew you had." However, despite technically being a competition, The World Scholar's Cup focuses far more on bringing students from different cultures together to discuss issues and ideas relevant to today and the future.
Ambassador School students have made their mark in the Dubai Round, the Singapore Round and then by reaching the third round of the WSC session in the USA.
Ambassador School’s involves itself with the other schools and organizations in the community through the following channels;
As the year progresses, ASD ensure that all students get to grow with the Dubai community through participation in events as and when the opportunities present themselves.
