Mind Ur Buddy Winners

January 14, 2012

Coolmine Community School’s 2010/11 Meitheal group won a contest for coming up with an advertisement to showcase the services of Pieta House.

The students wrote a song and directed a video entitled, “Mind Your Buddy”. The catchy tune was chosed from hundreds of entrants to be the overall winner.  A special presentation of the €1,000 cheque took place in Coolmine on Wednesday 19th October 2011.

The fate of the prize money is still mostly to be decided. A small amount will be put towards the First Years Halloween Party. Some thoughts have been put forward about small competitions in the school which will spread awareness of Pieta House and its work.

In the video, a girl is being pushed around by bullies.  Her friends wanting to help her advise her to go to the school counsellor, and he tells her about Pieta House. You can watch the winning video on Facebook at

Well done to Kevin, Kirsty, Nina, Roisin, Brian, Cian, Aireen, Hilda, Benedetta, Siobhan and Nikki our competition participants!
