Silver Gaisce Award

Posted on : April 25, 2017

Congratulations to Leah Wasson, one of our sixth year students who was awarded her Silver Gaisce Award. As well as applying herself to her Leaving Cert. studies, Leah took on the challenge of the Silver Presidents Award. While in TY Leah achieved the Bronze Gaisce Award and decided to go ahead and work towards the next award – silver. To qualify for this she had to invest considerable time into community work, developing a personal skill and taking on a new physical activity.  Finally she had to go on an expedition or adventure. For her community involvement Leah volunteered in the Faith and Light shop in Wine St., Sligo. Her physical activity was swimming while she learnt crochet as her new personal skill.  To finish off the award Leah went on a camping and walking adventure in Donegal. The award took a lot of effort and commitment, not to mention a lot of her personal time. It was worth it, though, she says, and she hopes to go for the gold award – but not til after the Leaving Cert. is done and dusted!
