Abbey Community College
Together Towards Excellence

Cara Programme

The Cara Programme is an initiative whereby carefully selected 5th Year students act as role models and mentors to new students in our school, specifically first years.

The title “Cara” means friend in Irish and this reflects the pastoral nature of the peer mentor role.

The aim of our Cara Programme is to make the transition from primary school/ another school more enjoyable and less daunting for our new students.

Caras are invaluable as they will have experienced the same issues and concerns and can offer support from a young person’s perspective.

The Cara Team will work with the Student Voice Co-ordinator, Class Tutors, Year Heads and Senior Management to help new students in Abbey Community College.
