Transition Years and Fifth Years from 2018/2019 taking part in Gaisce

Gaisce - our national 'President's Award' is a programme of self-development for young people between 15-25. So far, more than 300,000 people have taken part in this programme, including many students from St Dominic's.

Gaisce's four core values are:


Making a difference, effecting change and enabling young people to shape their own path to self-discovery.

Inclusion & Equality

Every person has the opportunity to grow their potential through equality of access, participation and outcomes.


Valuing people equally, recognising diversity, and ensuring everyone is treated with dignity.


Making an impact through pursuing the highest standards, operating with integrity and in a transparent manner.
