Spirit of Community
Do you have students in your school who deserve to be recognised for their volunteer work? Then encourage them to apply for the Pramerica Spirit of Community Award! This programme recognises post primary, secondary-level students from both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for community service activities, and is co-sponsored by the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals, (NAPD) and the General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland, (GTCNI). 

The Spirit of Community Awards programme was created by Prudential Inc. in the U.S. in 1995, and has recognised more than 80,000 young volunteers over the past 14 years.
The programme has elicited praise from educators, parents, elected officials and news media for communicating to young people the importance of volunteer service in their communities.
Among the many prominent personalities who have participated in the programme are Jimmy Carter, Barbara Bush, Magic Johnson, John Glenn, Whoopi Goldberg, Bertie Ahern and John Hume.
The programme has also been introduced in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
Application forms for the 2009 Spirit of Community Awards will be circulated to schools in early September.
