The Aspire NI Year 8 project at St Brigid's College, Derry, works to support existing school programmes which centre on the development of Literacy, Numeracy and Self Esteem. The project uses exciting alternatives to pen and paper e.g. I-Pads, S.T.E.M. Games, Comic Making Programmes, Drama, Problem Solving Challenges and Numeracy Through Sport. The Mentor will have an opportunity to participate in these programmes with Year 8. The school also encourages undergraduate mentors to experience life with other year groups within the school. Last year's University of Ulster Mentors brought much energy, enthusiasm and expertise to St Brigid's. We really loved their involvement in our school life.
