Congratulations to the Presentation College students who recently received their JPII Awards. Twenty-five students in total received the award. Twenty-three students received the Gold Award and two students received the Papal Cross Award.
The Pope John Paul II Award was created to commemorate the late Pope John Paul II who was so committed to young people and who had such belief and confidence in them.
The Award is a faith achievement award for young people between the ages of sixteen and eighteen. It is non-competitive, inclusive, flexible and voluntary.The Awards available are Bronze, Silver, Gold and the Papal Cross.
The Award is committed to helping young people enhance their spiritual, physical, social and emotional development through participation in school, parish and community activities. As well as the feeling of personal achievement that a participation will gain from taking part in the Award, participation will also help demonstrate the young person’s commitment to a task and goal.
