The Student Council
The Student Council is a representative structure, through which students in St Aloysius’ College 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 its students.
Role of the Council
Our Student Council consists of 18 Students (as of 2020), three representatives from each year group, with a Junior and Senior Council which meets termly as a collective. Their role includes the following:
- To represent the views of the students on matters of general concern to them and to ensure that students issues are listened to and given due consideration.
- To enhance communication between students, management, staff and parents.
- To promote friendship and respect among pupils.
- To support the management and staff in the development of the school.
- The Democratic Election of Representatives
- Elections to the Student Council take place at the end of September each year. Each class elects 2 Class Captains. These then go forward for election to the student council, every student in the year exercises their democratic vote for 1 student to be elected. The 3 captains (from different classes) who receive the most votes are elected to the Student Council. Students may only sit on the student council once during their time in Junior Cycle and once during their time in Senior Cycle.
The Council meets every 2 weeks during the school year to discuss any student related issues which are brought to its attention. These meetings are attended by the Student Council Liaison Teacher and often the Principal or Deputy Principal will drop in.
At these meetings the Student Council representatives represent student’s views. It is a forum for student concerns to be addressed.
In St. Aloysius College the Student Council has a consultative role. Students are involved in and contribute to the introduction and or amendments to policies such as our Code of Conduct, Anti- Bullying, Homework etc.
From 2020-21, with split lunch breaks our student council is represented by a Junior & Senior Council who meet as a collective once every half-term.
