Today, we had the privilege of celebrating the extraordinary achievements of our Form 5 Gaisce Bronze and Form 6 Silver recipients at KH School. These remarkable students have shown unwavering dedication to a diverse range of activities and initiatives, making a profound impact on our community.
From coaching local youth sports teams to leading thought-provoking debates on critical issues, and volunteering with nursing homes and individuals with intellectual disabilities, these students have left no stone unturned in their pursuit of personal, physical, and community challenges.
We extend our deepest gratitude to Michelle Murray for her tireless support and unwavering encouragement. Her dedication, from the early stages of their journey all the way to witnessing gold medal recipients this summer, is truly remarkable.
A round of applause goes out to the Bronze and Silver participants who persevered and completed their Gaisce – The President’s Award. Your commitment and resilience are truly commendable.
Gaisce – The President’s Award is a transformative self-development program designed for young people aged 14–25. This initiative has been proven to boost confidence and well-being by engaging participants in personal, physical, and community challenges. It’s a direct call to young people from the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, to dream big and realize their full potential.
