"Last year when I was in 5th year I signed up to do The Silver Gaisce Award. For this I had to do 26 weeks of community involvement, personal skills, physical recreation and an adventure journey over 3 days and 2 nights.
After completing the Silver Gaisce Award there was a Silver Award Ceremony on the 7th November at O’Reilly Theatre in Belvedere College. The Ceremony was MC’d by Spin 103.8 DJs Graham and Nathan and the awards were presented by the CEO of Gaisce, Yvonne McKenna.
Overall it was a great experience to take part in, which is why I am going to take part in the Gold Gaisce Award. I would highly recommend for everyone to take part in the Gaisce Award."
