Silver Gaisce Awards for Students

Congratulations to the seven students from Cashel Community School who received their Silver Gaisce Awards at The Munster Regional Silver Gaisce Award ceremony, held in University College Cork, on Thursday November 10.

MC on the night was RED FM’s KC and the awards were presented by Gary O’Donovan, Olympic Silver Medallist in Rio.

The Silver Gaisce Award challenges students to step outside their comfort zone and get involved in their community, get physically fitter, develop their personal skills and partake in a venture journey. Those who took part included Orla Purcell, Rose Murray, Cathal Quinn, Damien Borowski, John O’Connor, Rachel O’Keeffe and Aoife Crosse.

This year Cashel Community School's Silver Awardees travelled to Ballymcarbry in Co. Waterford where they trekked for 50km over three days.

All at the school are very proud of our students' achievements.

The awardees are now determined to continue their Gaisce journey and many have already begun the challenging journey to achieving their Gold Award.
