Gaisce - Bronze Venture Trip

Gaisce - Bronze Venture Trip

Gaisce – The President’s Award.

Last Thursday, 94 of our Transition Year students travelled to Avoca, Co. Cavan, to undertake an overnight venture trip, which would include over 26km of hiking over 2 days. They were accompanied by 8 teachers and 8 professional mountain guides. They were undertaking the venture trip as a requirement to achieving their Bronze Gaisce Medals.

Gaisce - The President's Award, is a personal development programme for young people between the ages of 15-25 in Ireland.

Interested students can start the Bronze Gaisce in Transition Year. They take on 13 weeks of Community, Physical and Personal skills with a 26km venture trip.

In 5th Year, students can continue the achievement with 26 weeks of Community, Physical and Personal skills and a 50km hike over 3 days - we have 12 students doing silver this year!

The Gold is normally started in 6th year or 1st year of college - this requires 50 weeks of Community, Physical and Personal skills with an 80km hike over 4 days, along with a 4 day residential project. Three of our former students received the Gold Gaisce Award from President Higgins in Dublin Castle last December!
