Students Council Meeting January/February
Recently St. Oliver’s N.S. Student Council visited Scoil Aonghusa NS. The visit was arranged by the council in an effort to liaise with other student councils in the town and to find out about the work they do in their school. There, the council met with and had a thirty minute meeting with members of Scoil Aonghusa's N.S. Student Council. Ideas and views were discussed and exchanged and both schools gained much from the visit. St Oliver’s extended an invitation to Scoil Aonghusa Student Council to come and visit our school before the end of the school year.
Students Council Meeting November
Recently the student council have been learning about children’s rights and responsibilities and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. One of the main themes of this charter is that children should be consulted and given a voice in areas that affect them. The student council recently conducted a survey on feelings and attitudes towards school life in St Oliver’s N.S. Results were analysed and collated by the council and were extremely positive and encouraging.
Students Council Meeting October
Big congratulations to the council for their work and support with the Halloween disco. In the month of November, the student council hopes to arrange a visit to another school to see what work other councils do. The council will write an email to other schools in the town to see if any other school would be interested in receiving a visit from St. Oliver’s Student Council. We will report back on our progress in November!
