Gaisce

​Gaisce is a developmental programme for young people ages 15 - 25. This year Gaise is being organized by Ms O' Reilly and Ms Beagly.

Gaisce's mission is to contribute to the development of all young people through the achievement of personal challenges. Awards can be entered directly (without a previous award) or indirectly (from a previous award). There are four challenges in each award, which all must be outside school:

  • Community Involvement – Charity work, Help with a youth club, Green Schools, Tidy Towns, Helping with children
  • Personal Skill – ECDL, Musical instrument, Dance, Singing lessons, Web design, Learn a foreign language (No sport allowed)
  • Physical Recreation – Walking, Cycling, Tennis, Badminton, Golf, Soccer, Gaelic, Rugby, Swimming, A marathon
  • Adventure Journey/Research – Adventure center, European walk/cycle, Mountain hike, Canoeing, (Those who would be unable to accomplish this due to a physical disability perform a suitable replacement activity such as research).

Gaisce offers students an opportunity to help them reach their full potential.
