Past Pupil Elaine Murray Receives Gaisce Gold Award

In December one of our past pupils, Elaine Murray, was presented with the Gold Gaisce Award by President Michael D Higgins. Elaine completed her bronze and silver awards as a student with us, having been first introduced to the Gasice through the Transition Year Programme. For her residential project, Elaine spent a week as a volunteer Cara with Barretstown Serious Fun Camp, while she completed 85km of the Atlantic Way in Clare for her Adventure Challenge. Other activities along the way included running, online-learning and volunteering in a soup kitchen. Speaking of her new award, Elaine said that “Gaisce has given me the courage to embrace the unknown and see what the world has waiting for me”.
