Year 13 Prefect Training.
Year 13 prefects received professional training with Brian Moore, Geraldine Stinton and Lydia Startin from Belfast YMCA.
The training was interactive, informative and it introduced the prefects to the idea of ‘coaching’.
Coaching is about helping a person to achieve their goals or improve their performance through structured one-to-one conversations. The training also gave them the opportunity to begin practising the skills of coaching which will prove very useful when they engage in the successful subject peer mentoring scheme that runs here in St. Mary’s.
