Student Council

The Junior School

The aim of the Junior School Student Council is to improve their school through encouraging social, cultural and other extracurricular events in the local community.

 A student council representative who is voted on by their class members is assigned to each class. That student passes on requests, ideas and gives feedback from students in that class to the student council, giving every child in the school a voice.

The structure of our student council includes a president, a vice president, secretary and a treasurer. Meetings are held every Thursday morning before school starts throughout the year. Students are voted on after they have given a speech to their class and a secret vote is carried out.

The student council helps share students’ ideas, interests, and concerns with teachers and leadership team.  They often also help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community projects, helping people in need and school reform. They also help care for the environment.

Here are some of this year’s achievements:

Art Competition

The student council promoted an art competition to make children aware of the importance of cleanliness to avoid sickness. The winning posters were enlarged and placed around the school.

Canteen Food

The student council met with the canteen leader and discussed how we can make the canteen healthier.  This included having more brown bread and fruit options.

Cinema Night

Our very popular cinema night raised 900 euros. The student council voted to buy P.E equipment for our playground.

Fruit day

Fruit day was also a great success. We sold 200 cups of fresh juice and raised 200 euro’s for a children’s charity.

 P.E

Our student council met with our P. E leader to discuss having small tournaments within each year group.

We will continue this with our new committee, with many more ideas and exciting projects.

A special thank you to everyone who helps and supports us. A very big thank you to our student council for all their hard work.
