Students are selected by their peers to represent them on the Student Council each year
Our Student Council
The Education Act, 1998 provides for the establishment of student councils, intending them to play an integral and important role in the school community. Student councils provide a representative structure through which students can debate issues of concern and undertake initiatives of benefit to the school and the wider community.
Members of the council representing each year group are elected by a secret ballot of their peers. The members meet regularly during the school year to discuss issues of concern.
In planning and undertaking activities during the course of the school year, the Council:
- works closely with school management, teachers and parents,
consults regularly with students in the school
- involves as many students as possible in the activities of the Council.
