A Student Council is a representative structure for students, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and the students. The Council promotes a sense of community within school and is used to support and develop citizenship. It encourages teamwork and helps to improve speaking and listening skills.
Our new Student Council comprises of a group of ten pupils from 3rd to 6th class. The council will generally meet several times each term. These meetings will be facilitated by Miss Boland with council representatives collecting ideas and suggestions for the agenda from each class ahead of each meeting. Suggestions will then be discussed, prioritised and brought to the attention of the school’s principal and to staff meetings.
Best wishes to our new Student Council in the months ahead!
