Gaisce

Each year a large number of transition year students participate in Gaisce-The President’s Award.
The award consists of 4 challenge areas: Community Involvement, Personal Skill, Physical Recreation and an Adventure Journey. With the exception of the Adventure Journey, each challenge area requires a minimum participation of 1 hour per week for 13 weeks and an additional 13 weeks in one challenge of the student’s choice. The participants carry out these activities outside of school hours and it requires a huge commitment. At the end of the school year the participants along with their PALs (President Award Leaders) plan and undertake an Adventure Journey which takes place over 2 days and 1 night. We go to Carlingford adventure Centre where we hike for 25 km over the 2 days. The participants receive their bronze awards in a ceremony held  either in the school or at a venue organised by Gaisce.
