The Student Council meet every Thursday at 1:30 pm in Room 26. Representatives from each of the form groups in the school are invited to attend. At each meeting class representatives bring suggestions from their respective form classes and, in turn, report back about the changes being made and actions being taken.
Each year, the Student Council choose 3 charities to support – one local, one national and one international. Fundraising and awareness raising has become an integral part of the work done by the students. For example, the student council organised a non-uniform day on Friday, December 18th 2020 to raise funds for cancer care and support via the Dana Faber Cancer Institute.
Every year, we send representatives to the Meath Comhairle na nOg AGM, who get involved in choosing the work topic that Meath Comhairle and its new members will work on for the next 2 years. We also liaise with the Irish Secondary Schools Union – the ISSU – on issues of local and national interest to our students. In their turn, the ISSU provide training for the new intake of student representatives. Last year our members provided input on Scoil Mhuire’s Child Safeguarding Risk Assessment and the design of the new student journal.
We look forward to a busy and active school year!
