The student council in Colaiste Muire is composed of senior students elected from their year. The council affords students the opportunity to play an active part in the corporate life of the school. It enhances communication between student’s, management and staff as well as encouraging students to become self-confident, responsible and caring. In our school we have found that a student council fosters in students a sense of loyalty, it is also their school and they should take pride in it. The council represents the views of students on matters of concern to them. Our student council works with a council liaison teacher whose role is to provide guidance, advice and information.
