Students' Council


Under the Education Act (1999), schools are obliged to elect a Students' Council. For the past few years, 18 students have been elected to serve on the Students' Council of St. Mary's College.

The role of the student Council is to represent students' views to management, to be consulted prior to the implementation of relevant new policies, to contribute, where appropriate, to the developing of policy in the school, to be a resource working in partnership with the management of the school, to improve the school atmosphere, conditions and facilities and to generate good relations between students, staff and management.


In St. Mary's College the Student Council also plays an important supportive role at Parent-Teacher meetings, Open Night, First Year Mass, the Céilí and all other events that take place in the school.
