Based on the spirit of the Duke of Edinburgh’s (Duke of Ed) International Award, PCYC Queensland is set to host the inaugural Dukes Games on Saturday, 5 October at PCYC Bundaberg.
Developed in celebration of The Duke of Ed Australia’s 60th year, the Dukes Games will bring together 12 teams of PCYC Queensland Duke of Ed participants from across the state for a fun day of skill, teamwork and adventure.
Supported by His Royal Highness The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex KG GCVO, the team who exhibits the greatest levels of compassion, persistence, unity and commitment on the day will be presented with the prestigious Earl of Wessex Shield for perpetual recognition.
