For the past number of years our 6th Years have been a wonderful support to 1st Years as they make the transition from primary to secondary and become members of the Bower Family. The Big Sister Little Sister Programme ensured that the school gym was always a hive of activity each Friday lunchtime as our Bigs and Littles enjoyed their weekly catch up with games, dance, laughter and chat.

With restrictions in place the BSLS programme could not run in its traditional format this year. However, our 6th Years wanted to do something special in the run up to Christmas for those who would have been their little sisters. They wanted to let the girls know that they were thinking of them and share messages of support and encouragement. During the last week of term, they delivered Christmas cards with small treats and a Christmas bauble to each 1st Year student as a reminder that they were thinking of them and wishing them a happy Christmas break.

This was a lovely surprise for the girls and really showed the Bower motto “Each for all and all for God” being lived out in the daily life of our school.
