Student Voice (Student Council)

Student Voice (Student Council)

Student Voice is a huge part of St. Aidan's Community School. We value our students' voice and value their perspective on schooling and teaching and learning. We are working on enhancing our Student Voice in the area of teaching and learning this coming year.

We also have a very active Student Council who are a group of elected student representatives who are involved in the affairs of the school and work in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of St. Aidan's. The Student Council work with Mr. Casey the Student Council Liaison Teacher in order to bring about positive change in the school and to ensure that Student Voice is actively heard.

The Student Council has responsibility for:

· Working with the staff, Board of Management and Parents' Association in the school;

· Communicating and consulting with all of the students in the school;

· Involving as many students as possible in the activities of the Council;

· Planning and managing the Council's programme of activities for the year;

· Managing and accounting to the student council and Board of Management, for any funds raised by the Council.

This year we held our elections in October all socially distanced of course.

The students council have already starting working together on different policies and issues relating to the school. They have been in contact with the student body and the wider school community including the principal and board of management. They are a voice for students in the school.

They are currently working on our Christmas appeal of Care Packs for rough sleepers in the city centre this Christmas. They are working closely with Dublin Simon Community Homeless Charity on this project.

They also have a Christmas Jumper Day in December planned in aid of LauraLynn Irish Children's Hospice.

We look forward to working closely with the student council throughout this academic year.
