The Big Sister Programme is our volunteer programme between First and Sixth Year students. A Sixth Year agrees to meet with a First Year student within school time for a minimum of 15 minutes a week outside class time. This is very important at the start of the year and it has many advantages. It is a particularly invaluable aid for the settling-in process for First Year students. It is great to have a "big sister" or a new older friend in the school when you arrive as a new student.
