CCS Student Council

Introduction

The contribution of our students is acknowledged and appreciated at CCS through our vibrant Students' Council. Each class group elects representatives to the Council on an annual basis. The Student Council actively participates in the affairs of our school under the leadership of the Council President, or Chairperson. The Student Council plays a central role in:

  • Supporting management and staff in the development of the school.
  • Representing the views of students on matters of concern to the student body, thereby influencing school policy.
  • Enhancing the school environment and promoting respect and co-operation between students

History 

Carrigaline Community School Student Council was founded in 2003 as a means of giving students a greater say in the running of their school. The Council acts as a medium for discussion for students, and as a forum for new ideas, aimed at improving the student experience at CCS. The Student Council forms a key part of school life at CCS and is involved in many activities throughout the year.

Role of the Student Council

Examples of Student Council contributions include:

  • Leadership roles in the CCS Annual Open Day and Night
  • Tour Guide for incoming First Years on their Induction Day at CCS
  • Participation in the National Comhairle Na nOg Programme
  • Responsibility for running a Whole School Election from the nomination process to counting of votes
  • Regular interaction with staff and management in school
  • Responsibility for organising and running Colours Day and other fun events
  • Fund-raising through various entertainment options during school year
  • Opportunity for Chairperson to present awards and address the audience at School Awards Night
  • Opportunity to receive multiple Principal's Awards for contributions and commitment to school community

In order to assist our Student Council members to understand their function and role we at CCS also provide our Council with the opportunity to participate in a National Student Council Training Program. This has proved very valuable to the overall function of the Council members and their abilities to operate effectively and efficiently in a large school environment and deal with various outside bodies and organisations as required.
