View pictures of the latest Meitheal Further Training Weekend which took place recently and see dates for further training weekends for the Meitheal Programme in 2012.



29 students and 10 volunteer attended their Meitheal Further Training weekend in Castletown Co Laois.  Over the weekend the students shared and reflected on their Meitheal journey to date.

They presented their work in the form of a river. They talked about the different actions they organised for their first years.

They highlighted all the good work and support they have received as Meitheal leaders. They also spoke of some of the difficult times they had encountered over the last five months.

The weekend also offered time and space to reflect on their own individual journeys and look to the future.

As Meitheal leaders we encourage students to carry the meitheal spirit with them when they leave school and start a new journey in Life.
