Student Council 2023/24

What is the Student Council?

A Student Council is a representative structure through which students in a post-primary school can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management and staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students. We believe that students have a valuable contribution to make to the effectiveness of their school. In turn, their involvement in the operation of the school is itself a valuable part of the education process for the students. A Student Council provides an opportunity for students to engage in a structured partnership with teachers, parents and school managers in the operation of their school. Research indicates that Student Councils can improve academic standards and reduce dropout rates in schools. Through the Student Council, we aim to create a sense of ownership of the school and its activities among the student population. The establishment of a Student Council gives students an opportunity to acquire the sort of communication, planning and organisation skills which will be of benefit to them in their future lives. It enables students to take responsibility for projects, and to demonstrate that they can manage and bring such projects to successful conclusion. Moreover, the contribution made by a Student Council to the development of school policy in several areas can have significant benefits for students and the school. School policies are far more likely to be successful where they are clearly understood and accepted by all partners within the school community.

What are the aims of the Student Council?

· To enhance communication between students, management, staff and parents.

· To promote an environment conducive to educational and personal development.

· To promote friendship and respect among students.

· To support the management and staff in the development of the school.

· To represent the views of the students on matters of general concern to them.
