Cairdeas is a group of (2nd Year) students who volunteer to act as ‘a buddie’ to new first year students. The name CAIRDEAS which is the Irish for friendship, demonstrates exactly what this group of students promotes in our school. The Cairdeas group organises manyevents during the school year.
The Cairdeas group work very diligently to ensure that the first years are assisted in their adjustment to life in secondary school. They have organised a soccer tournament, three-legged races and a quiz to give the first years opportunities to get to know each other. Monies raised from the quiz were donated to Trócaire.
