Student Council

What is a Student Council?

The Student Council is a brilliant representative structure for students only, through which they 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 the students.

Student Leadership

Democracy and democratic values are a core part of what an Educate Together school is all about and a key part of the democratic school community is the Student Council. At Blackrock Educate Together Secondary School, we recognise the importance of student involvement in our decision-making and the value of their input in our ongoing school development. It is the role of the student council to gather students’ opinions on a range of issues or suggestions to ensure that all students are represented equally. Through the experience of the student council, students develop a greater understanding of the fast-paced world of politics through campaigning and understanding the complexities of school management.

Student Council Formation

The formation of the student council was one of the many highlights of what has been a successful half term. The students were democratically elected by their peers at the end of September and 12 student members including a president (chairperson), secretary and treasurer, were elected. The members of the council has the opportunity to represent their peers by voicing concerns or suggestions to management. The council also has the opportunity to give back to the community by fundraising for causes that are important to them, and by joining various committees in our schools. Two student council members are associate members of the Board of Management. Therefore, the student voice is always being heard!
