"Reaching our Potential with Respect, Care and Friendship"
The Cáirde group is made up of Fifth and Sixth Year students who volunteer to help First Year students settle in as they start secondary school in Ard Scoil na nDéise.
We attend two training courses in communication and leadership prior to the beginning of the new school year.
We are role models, mentors and leaders. Each Cáirde Girl mentors a number of First Year students for the year, acting as a helper and a guide.We work with the First Year students throughout the year, ensuring a great start in Ard Scoil na nDéise.
All Senior students are invited to apply to join the Cáirde group, they are interviewed before selection and must then undergo training, some of which takes place during the summer holidays. The leadership experience is a valuable preparation for many aspects of adult life.
