Duke of Edinburgh

By Ballyclare High School on 14 March, 2023


Buckingham Palace has announced that Prince Edward is the new Duke of Edinburgh and today we are thrilled to announce HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as the new Patron of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.


The Duke has been a passionate and active supporter of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme for many years, having achieved his own Gold Award in 1986 and becoming a Trustee in 1988. We fondly remember his visit to school and the genuine interest he took in our pupils and staff.
