A big congratulations to Thomas for getting his Gold Presidents Award, which he will get presented to him on Tuesday in Dublin Castle by President Michael D Higgins. 🎉

After being inspired by Alex, one of our assistants at the summer school, who at the time was completing her Duke of Edinburgh award, Thomas went about finding an award similar in the Republic. From then, Thomas has successfully completed all aspects of his award, with commitment, determination and enjoyment, particularly the Sailing course at Carrickfergus Sailability for his Adventure.

Thomas was presented with his gold Gaisce award by President Michael D. Higgins at Dublin Castle on Tuesday 6 December 2016 accompanied by his parents.

Thomas would like to say thanks to all who supported him on his Gaisce journey!!
