Here is a photo of our Student Council with Catherine McCormack (CEIST) at a training day:

During this past year, the Student Council met every Friday at lunchtime to plan and to organise different activities for the school. Some of the activities are outlined below:

  • They attended a training session with Catherine McCormack from CEIST.
  • They organised a fundraiser and raised over €1000 for St. Vincent de Paul before Christmas. The cheque was presented at our annual Carol ceremony in the Cathedral.
  • They represented the school at our annual Open night in November where they handed out a newsletter to let potential students know all about what the Student Council does in our school.
  • They organised a homework club to take place in the library where Sixth year students helped students in other years with their homework.
  • They organised an Internet Safety Poster Competition for Internet Safety Awareness week. Congratulations to Ella Moloney who won First Prize and Eva Butler who won Second Prize for their posters.
  • They were planning to represent the School at CEIST Conference 2020 in March but unfortunately this event was cancelled due to Covid-19.
  • They were in the process of organising two major events in the school. Firstly to continue the success of last year’s Students versus Teachers Debate, they were hoping to run with another debate this year. Secondly, they hoped to revive an old tradition in Presentation Thurles of an annual School Sports Day in conjunction with the PE department, which was scheduled for the last week in April. Unfortunately, these two events were also cancelled due to Covid-19.

Thank you to all the girls who represented the school so well to date this year. All your work and energy is much appreciated. Thank you also to Ms J. Harrington who works very closely with our Student Council.

A new Council will be elected for the 2020 – 2021 academic year.
