Student Council

The Student Council was established in 2010 as part of the Equality and Justice strand of the Learn Together  Curriculum. The aim of the council is to provide students with greater involvement in the decision making  procedures of the school and learn about the democratic process.

Two children from each class are elected by secret ballot and retain their positions on the council for the  duration of the school year. Infant classes are represented by two elected pupils from 6th Class. Children  in the  senior classes canvass prior to the election.

The Student Council meets several times each term. Meetings are facilitated by Helen (teacher) with council representatives collecting ideas and suggestions for the agenda from each class ahead of each meeting. Suggestions are then discussed, prioritised and are brought to the attention of Eva (Principal) and to staff meetings. Since it was established, the Student Council has been responsible for a number of positive changes in the  school such as the very successful 6th Class-Junior Infant Buddy System. The council has held many  fundraisers and has also been responsible for several other successful initiatives, in particular the  campaign  to install a zebra crossing outside the school.

The student council continues to play an important role in school life and makes a vital contribution to improving our school environment and the quality of school life for all pupils and staff.
