The student council reconvened in September, holding their first meeting at the end of the month. The council welcomed their newest member, the new First class representative Ivy Rooney, following being elected to the council by her class mates. We also welcomed back the already elected students from last year, namely Oisín Moran, Jack Kirwan, Alexandra Balfe, Ethan Butler, Ellie Kirwan and Rhys Power Nolan and Ben Priestly.
The council’s great work has already commenced as they have focused their energy on once again getting Clonegal N.S. involved in the very worthwhile Team Hope Shoebox appeal. The school welcomed three transition year students from the local F.C.J. Secondary school in Bunclody on Wednesday, 12th October. These students alongside the student representatives from the council, explained to the entire school how they can get involved and support the charitable event. Videos and leaflets were distributed to all and posters have been hung around the school. We are looking forward to these being one of the most successful events to date. We will keep you all updated when the boxes are brought to the school on the week of November 8th.
