Oxley College, Bowral, commemorates a very special day

June 30, 2021

A few weeks ago Oxley College from Bowral NSW celebrated what would have been HRH Prince Philip’s 100th birthday.

Award Coordinator, Timothy Dibdin advised  their Award Community at Oxley College enjoyed a lovely time celebrating Prince Philip’s 100th birthday by holding a special recess.  "The students sang with gusto and it actually started sleeting. Prince Philip would have been used to that kind of weather in his own Highlands school!" said Mr Dibdin.  He added "We even found a ceremonial sword among the History artefacts with which to cut the cake".

Congratulations to the Duke of Ed Award Community at Oxley College and thank you for commemorating the wonderful patriarch of the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award. He was extremely proud of this exciting international youth development program for young people 14-24 years.
