CCS Student CouncilIntroducing Our Student Council at CCS

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 of our Student Council

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.
