This year, 18 sixth-year students were trained by Ms. Kathleen Elliott to become Cairdeas leaders in St. Mary’s College. The Cairdeas leaders care for and mentor second-year students. Warm relationships are very quickly established between the leaders and those in their care. Cairdeas leaders collectively plan events that involve fun and a shared sense of belonging in St. Mary’s. The leaders themselves relish the distraction that the second-years provide. As a result of the weekly lunchtime visits and occasional whole-year events, abiding memories are created. Ms. Olive Humphreys is the Cairdeas coordinator.

St. Mary's College Cairdeas programme began 6 years ago to enable 6th years to mentor 2nd years. The team was present on the first day of the new second years' return and organised activities for them to help them to settle into 2nd year. The team organised a very successful Movie night and pizza the week before mid term. Other activities are in the pipeline.
