A Student Council was established at the college in 2009 in order to foster teamwork and to recognise the importance of student involvement in the decision making process. Each year class representatives are elected by the students to represent them and to give voice to their views and concerns and contributions.
The Student Council meets every second Thursday during lunch time. Ms. Tara Connolly, Mr Egan and Ms Smith co-ordinate the activities of the Council.

The student council was democratically elected by you, the students, to represent you in the school. If you have any great ideas or if you notice something that needs attention, you can tell any member of the student council and we will discuss them at our meetings and with liaison teachers.
Our work to date:
St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Hamper appeal:
Your student council wanted to continue the tradition of collecting food items for the St. Vincent de Paul. The PR team contacted the society and informed them that we would be collecting non-perishable food items for their appeal. They also arranged for the society to collect the hampers and they asked first year tutors to assist in telling first year students about the importance of the appeal. First year students also made posters to help the PR team promote the appeal.
The student council secretary and PR representatives also arranged for the canteen staff to kindly keep boxes for us to use as hampers.
The student council, along with the help of some TY and 5th year volunteers packed the hampers evenly and wrapped the boxes.
The hampers were collected on Friday the 9th of December and we are very proud to say that we handed over 23 hampers.
We would like to thank students, parents and staff for their help and generous contributions to such a worthy cause.
We will be discussing and giving opinions on policies throughout the year.
We have also been asked our opinions on matters such as timetables.
Representatives of the student council have also met with the board of management.
It was brought to the attention of two members that at times there is not enough soap in the toilets and that some toilet door locks needed to be fixed. The student council brought this to the attention of management who immediately fixed the situation.
