Mentorz Testimonial

I was delighted to be offered a position in the Bellvue Mentorz programme last September. I first encountered Bellvue when I played Mrs. Wormwood in ‘Pure Imagination’ and have loved working with Lisa and the team ever since! I have mentored the Starz, Dance and Bratz classes which has been the perfect opportunity to experience firsthand the career I hope to obtain when I am older. It’s such a privilege to be a part of the Bellvue team, seeing how hard working and dedicated everyone is and of course, seeing the joy and fun the students have at their classes. It has been a pleasure watching the kids grow and improve each week since the start of the term. I am very grateful to have had this opportunity!

My name is Caoimhe and I am one of the Mentorz in the new Mentorz program! I was asked to join at the start of this year. I love coming to my classes on Saturdays. It’s literally the highlight of my week. I love watching the progress and talent in every single child! It’s amazing to see how far they have all come since the start of the year. I really enjoy working with everyone in Bellvue because everyone it’s so inclusive. I am so excited to see what the future of the Mentorz program will bring!

I have been a Mentor to the Bratz red group for 2 terms and to say that it is extremely rewarding would be an understatement. Every week I get to witness my group progress and improve while putting their heart and soul into everything they do. I love being a Mentor as it feels like we’re all a big family. I never thought I’d be chosen to do something like being a Mentor but I’m so honoured to have been chosen. Being a Mentor has made me more passionate about the performing arts. I can’t wait to see my group along with all their friends put on a fantastic show!

Being a Mentor at Bellvue has been such an amazing experience. I’ve learned so much about the efforts put into running such a wonderful place. Working with kids in the performing arts has always been something I’ve wanted to do and I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to do that.

To me Mentorz is getting an opportunity to learn and grow as an aspiring actor. It morphs together my 2 interests of teaching and drama into one incredible experience. It is a truly unique and brilliant scheme.

I have been a Mentor in Bellvue for just over a month now and it has been an amazing experience. Being the youngest of the group I was a bit nervous to start out with as all of the other mentors had been doing it a bit longer than me but I had nothing to be worried about. They were all very welcoming and I soon settled in. I am I Mentor for the Bratz group and I love seeing them get better and better every week. Overall being a Mentor has been a great experience and I can’t wait to continue

I was honoured to have the opportunity to take part in the Mentorz programme in Bellvue Academy this year. I loved working with each and every one of the children because it reminded me of how excited I was when I was younger to learn songs and dances and go on stage. The programme has given me skills and experience that is invaluable to me and I cannot wait to see what the future brings for the Mentorz programme
