LAST September, 12 transition year students of Maria Immaculata Community College, Dunmanway, began their tasks in order to achieve their Gaisce Bronze Awards. These tasks included community involvement, physical recreation and learning a new skill. 

Each student carried out these tasks for one hour a week in each category throughout the school year.

Also, as part of the award, students were required to participate in an overnight adventure journey, consisting of a 25km walk and cooking for themselves. In mid-May, these 12 students with the PAL leader Sarah Kennedy and school chaplain, Elaine O’ Sullivan headed to Mount Melleray, where they stayed overnight and completed this walk along with other team activities (archery, climbing wall, etc).

All twelve students completed the four required tasks to secure their Gaisce Bronze Awards.
