TY students have the opportunity to participate in the Gaisce Award programme. Their recent Adventure trip to Glendalough is the culmination of their journey. This was a great overnight stay in Glendalough's Youth Hostel and a 25km hike over the two days. A little rain did not dampen their spirits,

Gaisce – The President’s Award is a self-development programme for young people aged 14-25. 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's mission is to provide a positive youth development programme that encourages and rewards young people to discover their passions and challenge themselves, positively impacting themselves and the world around them.

Gaisce Participants achieve a Gaisce Award by completing Challenge Areas: Personal Skill, Physical Recreation, Community Involvement, and an Adventure Journey. President’s Award Leaders deliver, guide and support Gaisce Participants undertaking the Award.

They have been required to dedicate a minimum of 1 hour per week for 13 weeks to each main Challenge Area; Personal Skill, Community Involvement and Physical Recreation. They selected one Challenge Area to dedicate an additional 13 weeks to.

Students can be proud of their achievements .
