Peer Mentoring


Peer mentoring was introduced in 2010 for year 13 & 14 students. They are trained by Achieve NI to help younger students with issues both inside and outside of school. Some of the issues discussed are:

Anger Management
Home Life

There are 28 current mentors who meet with Mrs O’Connor monthly. The programme has been hugely successful in recent years with the mentors themselves gaining major benefits from this experience. As well as the personal rewards from helping others, it also equips them in discovering leadership and personal qualities which will help them in future life.

Pupils or parents on their behalf, can request that they are matched with a mentor by contacting Mrs O’Connor.
