With the help of the Faith Development Office in Carlow, interviews were held last April and 12 pupils were chosen for the programme. The Cairdeas team attended a day’s leadership training in the Osprey in August and have worked with the 2nd year since the start of the academic year. They have organised an activities morning and class based events. Rumour has it that a movie night before Halloween is imminent. The team are Aoife Raggett, Chloe Mangan, Robyn O’Reilly, Jamie Lee Nolan, Amy Crofton, Katie Clarke, Caoimhe Duffy, Laura Keenaghan, Clare Scanlon, Amy Nugent, Jade Carpenter and Grace Mc Entegart
The Cairdeas team held a very successful Movie PJ Night for all 2nd years in October. A choice of 3 movies was available and friends were able to enjoy their chosen movie with the help of loads of duvets, pillows and throws. Pizza and chips served at the start of the movie were enjoyed by all and the desert was sweets and chews, An enjoyable night was had by all.
