They were the final group of Silver Gaisce recipients from 2020 receive their Silver Gaisce awards.

A huge well done to Emily Carey, Maeve Montgomery, Nazia Rafiq, Asma & Belkisa Shala who have been waiting patiently for this day.

The students also received their custom-designed Tee-shirts to mark the achievement. Thank you to Ms Bligh, who has been championing the very rewarding Gaisce programme in the school for many years.

Gaisce or ‘great achievement’ is a self-development programme for young people between the ages of 15-25 and has been in existence since 1985. The Silver Award is the second level of the Gaisce Award.
