Parents sometimes find it difficult to remember to give children the time and space to develop their independence through simple life skills – sometimes parents are too busy and just need to get things done! The Junior Duke and Mini Duke Awards give the children this time and space to explore and develop their independence.
We started running this Award at the Senior Secondary School Level but after three years, it dawned on us that it would be great to have our students develop the skills earlier. Therefore, at the Junior Secondary and Primary Level, Start-Rite Schools is the first school in Nigeria to obtain the license to run the programme.

The Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning, which challenges young people to dream big, celebrate their achievements, and make a difference in their world. Through developing transferable skills, increasing their fitness levels, cultivating a sense of adventure, and volunteering in their community, the Award helps young people to find their purpose, passion, and place in the world.
