Student Council

What is a Student Council? 

A Student Council is a representative structure for pupils, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff, and parents for the benefit of the school and all of its pupils. 


Why do we want a Student Council? 

A core value and central belief of all Edmund Rice schools is that our pupils should be enabled to develop their leadership capacity and a sense of responsibility. 
We encourage our pupils to take an active interest in the school and its community, and to vocalise their ideas for the development of our school. 


How will the Student Council in Scoil Mhuire be formed? 

Elections will take place so that each of our 5th and 6th Classes can elect a permanent representative on the Council. These five students will attend each meeting that takes place throughout the year. 

To include as many different voices as possible, we will operate a rotation system for the remaining places on the Council: each 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Class will send a different pupil every month, while each of the 5th and 6th Classes will be allowed to send a second pupil in addition to their elected representative.
