Student Council News

By: Andrew Brosnan - 2 Máire, Student Council Representative

On Monday, 21st October 2013, students from our Student Council attended a forum at the Institute of Technology in Tralee. Other schools from around Kerry attended on the day too. The day began with a welcoming speech from the Education Officer in Kerry ETB, Ms. Ann O’Dwyer.  She informed the students of their new Kerry Education and Training Board (KETB) name.  After that Ms. Margaret Godley and Ms. Miriam Galvin gave us presentations about the role of the student council and how the council can be run in an efficient and effective manner. We were also informed of the anti-bullying convention in January and we came up with issues that should be discussed.  Finally, the students shared the progress that their council have made in their schools since the last forum.  Then the students took down ways that they could improve their own school and we headed home after a lovely lunch. 

Representatives from KCC Student Council that attended on the day were; Andrew Brosnan, Daria Sitnik, Stephen Nagle Moriarty and teacher Ms. C. O’Neill.
