Idirbliain Dáltaí Complete Gaisce Bronze Medal Challenge

On 26th and 27th April, 25 hopeful students set off on an Adventure Journey in the Mourne Mountains, the last piece of the jigsaw in their quest to achieve their GAISCE award. Having already completed 52 hours in Community Involvement, Personal Skills and Physical Activities, this challenge would not be a stumbling block. After a few early navigating glitches, the groups retook control and 2 days later after 40 km of hill walking, enduring the four seasons in a day Irish weather, sing songs of varying degrees of quality, meal preparation that would easily gain Michelin star recognition, we reached the coastal town of Newcastle and the comfort of the bus home. A huge comhghairdeachas to all participants who will receive their awards at their Gradam in May in the Coláiste.
