Student Council

What is a student council?

A student council is a formal group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the principal and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in our school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. “Student council” means all kinds of school-based groups run by students. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. Student councils are usually elected annually by the other children. A student council does a number of things:

  • A student council usually meets with a teacher present to discuss and sort out problems. These could include resources or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed upon, such as planning events or writing website articles.
  • Each year, every 6th class will normally elect two representatives to be members of the student council.

Our Student Council held a very successful Halloween Raffle

The Student Council

Hello, we are St. Francis Xavier’s student council. This year we have been working very hard. We would like to share with you our achievements and thoughts for the future.

Our Fundraising Efforts

In October, we organised the Halloween raffle. It was a great success and we raised €1,327. We would like to thank the people who took part in the fundraiser and a special thank you to all of the people who contributed prizes and sponsored us.

Thoughts for the future

As we have raised a lot of money for the school, we plan to spend it on things for the school. We are thinking of buying board game and outdoor equipment. This year we are going to organise many fun activities and events for the pupils and staff at SFX.
