"Being involved in the school newspaper  afforded me the opportunity of working as part of a team. Julie and I gave a presentation to our BOM  which was a valuable learning experience. This gave us great confidence in public speaking. " 

Kieva Hynes (6th Year 2018/19)


"Being a Meitheal leader taught me the importance of guiding young people enabling them to make a smooth transition from primary school. It provided me with the opportunity to develop good interpersonal skills which I will use throughout my life."
