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.
Your Cairdeas ‘buddie’ can help by:

  • Finding your locker, classroom, toilets, lunchroom, etc.
  • Showing you where to go at lunchtime /breaktime
  • Helping you to make friends through the activities they organise
  • Looking out for you in general!

You as a first year will be given a ‘buddie’ of your choice. You can then go to that person if you have any concerns or want reassurance.
