HRH The Duke of Edinburgh is currently visiting New Zealand, as worldwide head of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award programmes. While he is in New Zealand, Prince Edward is attending events celebrating the 60th year of the Hillary Award programme in New Zealand. Tonight, at Government House Auckland, he participated at an education forum hosted by Dame Cindy. The forum brought together representatives from education, the community and the corporate sector to discuss leadership training in schools and the Award programme in Aotearoa. Participants shared their insights into what initiatives best enable young people to confidently take their place in the world, and with a greater awareness of the possibilities open to them.
