In December six sixth year students from Scoil Chonglais, Baltinglass received a Silver Gaisce Award at a ceremony in Trinity College Dublin. Sean Byrne, Aoife Case, Orla Dunne, Shane Humphreys, John Gorman and Nathan Whittle. This is a tremendous achievement for all students involved, as they worked hard in each of their endeavours. The students had to learn a new personal skill, a new physical skill and give an hour of their time each week to an area in their community. The students are extremely hard working and everyone at Scoil Chonglais is very proud of them. They were accompanied on the night with their Gaisce PAL, Ms Julie Hedderman, Well done to all.
