RIMA Class report

We are class that is diverse interesting and unique from any other form class. Rima is organised by the amazing teacher Margaret Guerin who organises shared lunches and activities for the Friday mentoring session. These 50 minute mentoring sessions of Friday allow students to interact and become involved in how they think that the school should deal with the recent issues. Rima has a person from every part of the school that contributes to the overall atmosphere of the class. This form class consists of students who all have different talents that contribute to the overall success.
