Gaisce - Bronze medal recipients

  • 22nd May 2023 3:31 pm

Well done to our 46 Gaisce Bronze Medal recipients in TY. They were presented with their medals today in Cuisle by Darina and Ms Earwaker. 

Gaisce –The President’s Award is a self-development programme for young people aged 14 -25 which has been proven to enhance confidence and wellbeing through participation in personal, physical and community challenges. It is a direct challenge from the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, to all young people to dream big and realise their potential. Gaisce Awards are non-competitive and self-directed: participants choose their own activities, goals and projects with the support of their President’s Award Leader (or PAL).Gaisce was established in 1985 – the UN International Year of Youth – as the national youth award and Ireland’s highest recognition of a young person’s achievement and voluntary contribution. To date, more than a quarter of a million young people have achieved their Gaisce Award. And counting …

St Louis High School has a long association with Gaisce as part of our TY programme. To achieve the Gaisce Bronze medal, the following must be completed: With exception to the Adventure Journey, each challenge area requires a minimum participation of 1 hour per week for 13 weeks. The Adventure Journey takes place over a minimum of 2 days and 1 night.

Additional Weeks:An additional 13 weeks must be completed in one challenge area of your choice. This could be an activity you really enjoyed, or an activity in which you feel you still have room for improvement. As a result, it will take at least 26 weeks to complete your Bronze Award, however everyone is free to complete the award at their own pace.

Students often go on to complete the requirements for the Silver and Gold Gaisce Medals.  

We encourage students to engage with this wonderful programme. Well done to all medal recipients this year.
