Thank you to this year’s Meitheal team who continued the work of service to others that is such an important part of our school community.
In our school a group of 8 to 10 5th year students are selected as Meitheal leaders, to support and help first years transition from primary into secondary school. This year’s Meitheal team have facilitated first years in a number of different ways: from giving them a tour of the school on their first day, organising a day of fun ice breakers during their first week to help them to socialise and make new friends hosting a Halloween party to having a table quiz. Each member of the Meitheal team had a group of 10 first years to look out for and be available to. The team took lunch with their group a few times through the year. The team learned all about the importance of teamwork and having fun while also looking out for others.
