Student Council

Role and Purpose of the Student Council in Listellick National School

Listellick National School believes that students have a vital role to play in creating a positive and welcoming environment conducive to learning and happiness. We believe that our Student Council plays a role in achieving this.

The role of the Student Council is to:

  • Provide an opportunity for pupils to voice their opinions and offer suggestions in relation to many aspects of school life
  • Offer an opportunity for all pupils to voice their opinions on proposed changes
  • Act as a channel of communication between pupils and between home and school
  • Encourage pupils to organise events in Listellick National School and to represent the school in a positive way during these events

The Election Process

Each year, students from Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Class are invited to nominate themselves for a place on the Student Council. Prior to the election nominees are invited to canvass and engage in debates with other candidates in their class. An election is then held in each class and two or three representatives are elected to the Student Council for the duration of that academic year. The elected pupils are required to be active participants in the Student Council, to attend meetings regularly, participate in activities and be a role model for other students. All Student Council members wear specifically designed badges to ensure they are identifiable as Student Council representatives.

Student Council Meetings

Student Council meetings are held once a month at lunchtime. Meetings are facilitated by Ms. O’Driscoll. Prior to these meetings the Student Council representatives collect ideas and suggestions from all classes. Staff may also put forward topics for discussion. As well as bringing matters to the Council for discussion, members are required to report the outcome of meetings to other classes.

Topics that come under discussion at Student Council Meetings may include the folllowing:

  • School rules
  • Behaviour and discipline
  • Green issues
  • Health and Safety
  • Homework
