Hello and welcome to the Student Council page!

The Student Council is made up of a girl and a boy from each class from Primary 4 to Primary 7.

The boys and girls have all been voted for by their classmates.

Members of the Student Council are:

P4 – Conal Cleary

       Caoimbhe Smyth

P5 – Chloe McClements (secretary)

       Eoin Murray (vice-chairperson)

P6 – Eanna Coffey

         Ella-Louise Matchett (secretary)

P7 – Kady-Mae Arthurs (chairperson)

         Rossa Byers (vice-chairperson)

The Student Council helps Mr Gilchrist to make the school a better place.

We meet once a week to discuss issues raised and events taking place etc.

The Student Council have a suggestion box in a central area where boys and girls from St. Mary’s can put new ideas and suggestions forward to make our school a better place.

We then discuss these at our meetings and decide what to do about them.

Keep up to date on all our activities through the website!
