Challenge reaps golden rewards Gold award: Bucklands Beach resident Peter Pantheja, 19, has just received his gold award for the Duke of Edinburgh programme. Photo: KRISTINA RAPLEY By KRISTINA RAPLEY Never give up. That s the advice Bucklands Beach resident Peter Pantheja would give young people embarking on the Duke of Edinburgh programme. He was awarded his gold award at a ceremony last weekend. The former Macleans College student has gone as far as he can go in the scheme. The award programme is a volun- tary, noncompetitive programme of leisure activities for people aged 14 to 25. It offers personal and individual challenges through a four-section pro- gramme with three levels -- bronze, sil- ver and gold. The sections are service, skills, adventurous journey, physical rec- reation and residential. The adventurous journey section is the one Peter found most challenging and rewarding. It involves training for, practising, planning and completing a journey on foot, horseback or by boat or cycle. For his gold award he and three others had to navigate their way around the Waitakere Ranges on a four-day tramp. It was really tough but to overcome it was really rewarding. You have to have a lot of physical and mental strength. For the service sections he did a first aid course, helped out in the resource room at Macleans College and volun- teered at a holiday programme. He was 14 when he started his Duke of Edinburgh at Macleans College and is now in his second year at Auckland University studying computer systems engineering. He says he would definitely recom- mend the programme to others. It s an opportunity that won t come again and if you miss it you ll regret it. He also says he couldn t have done it without the Macleans College scheme co-ordinator Wendy Bungay and his parents. Visit www.dofehillary.org.nz for more information.
