Duke of Edinburgh
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, bringing together practical experiences and life skills to equip young people for life. Jain International Residential School has been offered the award as a part of its co-curricular activity program.
This program enables students to attend and participate in the ADVENTURE EXPEDITION to the Himalayas, where they learn team work and leadership building. They need to earn an award with perseverance and enterprise by completing 12 to 18 hours of service, learning skills, and sports for physical fitness. The most exciting section is the adventure and expedition, which has taken off in a big way. Trekking, mountaineering, rappelling, tent pitching, river rafting, building bridges have brought about unlimited zest and zeal amongst our students to qualify and graduate with the award. Till today, JIRS has given 113 students to grab the opportunity to enroll themselves for this program which includes 50 Bronze Awardees and 63 Silver Awardees.
