Congratulations to the Meitheal leaders who finished up a very successful year during the past week. The team of ten leaving certs, who were part of the diocesan Meitheal Peer Leadership Programme in our school, were celebrating their achievements in Askea church in the company of teachers, parents, Coordinator Robert Norton and Bishop Denis Nulty. The leaders spent the year providing peer mentoring to the first year students in our school and played a huge role in helping them to settle into secondary school. Thanks to them from all at BVS.
