The Mentor Scheme
The Mentor Scheme is where a group of Fifth Year Students act as a support group to First Years. The Mentors are carefully selected and trained to help and assist the younger students. Throughout the year the Mentors organise sports and social events. The intention is to create an atmosphere of trust and friendship that can ease the transition from Primary to Secondary School. It gives the younger students an opportunity to feel connected and settle into the college while it gives the older students a sense of responsibility and helps to develop their leadership skills.
