Well done to the children from 3rd to 6th class who were chosen to represent their classes on the Student Council. They had their first meeting with Ms. Woodcock and they are very enthusiastic. They will also be helping Ms. Teehan to promote the Active Flag activities that we do in our school. They are already helping us to come up with some new ideas.
3rd: Sam, Abi, Conor and Lily
4th: Lucy, Hugo, Ailbhe, Tim, Seán and Aibhe
5th: Caoimhe, Aibhe, Evan and Alanah
6th: Loman, Emily, Andrew and Peggy
Our 6th class representatives on the student council officially welcomed our new junior infants and their parents to the school this week. Peggy and Loman spoke to the infants themselves, giving great advice and informing them of all the wonderful things they have to look forward to in their years in this school. Emily and Andrew spoke to the parents at their meeting to let them know what this school was like from a student’s point of view. They spoke of all the wonderful opportunities that lay ahead of their little boys and girls and all the wonderful memories they themselves had over their 7 years in this school. Our student council did the school very proud.
We are very proud of our Student Council. A Student Council is the voice of the students in the school. Members are elected by each class from 3rd class up at the beginning of each school year. They work in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students. They meet regularly and make great suggestions for the happiness and smooth running of the school. Thanks to Ms. Woodcock who co-ordinates all this work.
In particular the Student Council in St. Brigid’s do great work organizing fund raising events in the school. Most recently, in June 2017 they ran a Charity T-shirt Day. The students chose to collect for Greystones Cancer Support and St. Catherine’s School. They raised 840 euro so each charity will receive 420 euro.
The Student Council also work as the Active School Council. You can read about the work we have done towards the Active School Flag HERE
