Year Report

With great pleasure, we are delighted to report that the Student Voice was founded this past year, thanks to the hard work and support of all members of the school community. We would like to express our particular gratitude to the hard work of Ms. C. Boland and Ms. F. Foy for their support in the founding of the Student Voice.

The Student Voice aims to serve as a new and exciting revival of the student council, with an emphasis on student leadership and student welfare to the forefront of this advisory committee.

Since its foundation, the Student Voice has grown from strength to strength. The past academic years saw regular meetings of the committee members, along with a visit to the Offaly Comhairle na nÓg AGM, in Tullamore, training for committee members, links with our Green Schools Committee and representing our school at all public events, parent teacher meetings etc.

The Student Voice is delighted to report that the committee is actively growing with this year’s current membership including First to Sixth Year students; all working together towards creating a caring community of learning where each individual is valued as a unique human being; where all students are given a voice and are listened to.
