There is an active Student Council. Classes at Junior Cycle elect their class representatives and work closely with the mentoring group of students from fifth year, seven of whom form the Student Council for the year. Issues of interest and concern are raised by students in discussions held in their C.S.P.E. classes and following several meetings these are prioritised by students and are brought directly to the attention of the management of the school. Meetings are held with the Principal and the Parents’ Association.
The support of Management, Staff and the Parents’ Association is much appreciated and we are looking forward to continued good work by the students.
