Gaisce Silver Award

Congratulations to Evan Condon (5th Year) on being awarded a Silver Medal from the President’s Awards (Gaisce).

The Award Ceremony took place in Thomond Park on April 30th 2019 where Evan was presented with his medal by the CEO of Gaisce, Yvonne McKenna and by Marcus Horan, the former Munster Rugby player.

I really enjoyed the awards programme, I feel I have acquired new skills and have become an active member of my community.

I worked on 4 key areas including Community Involvement (Certified Desmond College as a Fairtrade School), Personal Skill (Speech and Drama, Grade 10), Physical Recreation (Gym Work and Swimming) and I undertook an Adventure Journey (Hikes around the Kerry Area).

This has all helped me to further develop my self-esteem and has given me the confidence to unlock my full potential. I am very grateful for the opportunity presented to me via the President’s Award, and from my PAL leader, Miss Margaret O’Connor and look forward to pursuing the Gold Award at a later date“.
