Meitheal 20/21

Well done to our Meitheal members firstly on being selected and secondly on completion of the training required to allow them mentor and look after our new First Year cohort. The group pictured here, socially distanced and leading by example are Dean Davis, Leah Browne, Hope Tallon, Anthony McDonald, Thomas Ellis, Mary Mulhall, Erin Byrne, Sarah Murray and Seamus Delaney.

Meitheal is a leadership programme which operates in 19 secondary schools in the Kildare and Leighlin diocese. The name Meitheal was taken from an old tradition in the west. Farmers living in the same area would have a Meitheal every year, the whole idea being that they would work together to bring in their crops. This built up strong friendships and respect among the people involved in the Meitheal. The Meitheal programme is designed to educate and empower young people in their schools..

The chosen group are ready to look after the school’s First Year group who may find things overwhelming as they embark on their second-level education. Well done to all involved. We wish you every success in these challenging times.
