A small group of students from Naas CBS have landed a Gaisce silver medal award.

The group received their award at the end of May from local priest Fr. John Brickley, who coincidentally was associated with the launch of the Gaisce awards scheme.

The group spent 26 hours each on various projects under the headings of physical recreation, community project and personal skills. And they had to tackle assignments which were totally new to them.

Their most recent task was a 200 kilometre round trip cycle form Naas to Birr in Offaly and back, which took place in mid-May.
