Student Councils, which are provided for in the 1998 Education Act afford students the opportunity to become involved in the affairs of their school. They are also very much in line with Goal 1 of the National Children’s Strategy which states that children have a voice in matters that affect their lives.
The role of the student council is:
- To represent the views of the student body.
- To promote good communication within the school.
- To support the educational development and progress of students.
- To contribute to the development of school policy.
- To assist in school sports and cultural activities.
- To assist with or organise fundraising events for charity.
The student council plays an important role in enhancing communication within the school and sets out to contribute to a positive atmosphere as a whole while working for a more comfortable, productive and functional school environment.
The council consists of fourteen members, seven from Leaving Cert and Seven from fifth year. Each September there is an election in the Fifth year classes to select the seven new members to replace the Leaving Cert members who graduated the previous year.
Mr Ned Murren is the staff representative on the student council.
