Award Framework and Our Mission:

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is segmented into four key areas, each aligning with our educational ethos:

  • Service: Students engage in meaningful community service, aligning their efforts with local charities that Amnuay Silpa supports. These partnerships provide students with the opportunity to effect real change and develop a deep sense of social responsibility, which is central to our school’s values.

Our commitment to well-rounded development is reflected as students learn to balance their academic and physical pursuits.
