Gaisce 2015 walk

Last week, 5th year students in St. John Bosco Community College participate in the Gaisce challenge. The group took on the "venture challenge" together which involves a walk over thirty km over two days and an over night stay in a hostel.

 

Ireland's National Challenge Award

Gaisce - The President's Award is Ireland's National Challenge Award for young people, the country's most prestigious and respected individual Award programme. It is a challenge from the President of Ireland to the young people of Ireland.
 
Gaisce works on the basis of a personal challenge set by the young person. You will set your own challenge and agree it with a President's Award Leader (PAL). You won't be competing with other participants, as each challenge is completely individual… so the only person you will compete with is yourself.
 
Traditionally, 5th year students in St. John Bosco Community College participate in the Gaisce challenge.  They take on a physical activity, a personal skill and they work for an hour a week in their community.  At the end of the year the group take on the "venture challenge" together which involves a walk over thirty km over two days and an over night stay in a hostel.
