Gaisce Awards 2020

Some members of our TY 2020 Class were last week presented with their Gaisce Awards. One student Noel Mc Grath details here a summary of his Gaisce Journey.

I completed Gaisce as part of Transition Year. Gaisce is a self-development program for young people between the ages of 15-25 and has been in existence since 1985.  I completed the bronze award and it had four different aspects to it.  Community Involvement
I volunteered to be part of the student council for the 13 week requirement.
Personal skill
I completed the ECDL course to improve my IT skills. This took 26 weeks to complete.
Physical Recreation
I took up rugby for the year and trained 3 times a week.
Adventure Journey
Unfortunately due to Covid 19 we did not get to complete this aspect of the Award.
I really enjoyed completing Gaisce and I think it is very worthwhile for all TY students. I learned and gained valuable life skills that will help me great in the future.  –
