The aim of the Student Council is to allow the children an opportunity to contribute to the positive development of our school and to let the students’ voices be heard. Members of the Council are elected to represent their class and bring forth the opinions of all class members and not personal views. Due to the size of our school we have 2 councils. Senior Council is open to students from 3rd to 6th class and Junior Council is open from to students from Junior Infants to 2nd class. Children who are members of the student council are expected to be positive role models for the other students and to act responsibly at all times.
This year our Student Captain is Alex Domsa ably assisted by Vice Captain Mikayla Leavy.
Our Junior Captain is Cillian Houlihan and Junior Vice Captain is Donal Blennerhasset.

So far this year the Student Council have helped out with our very successful book fair which saw the return of over €3,000 worth of books to the school. They highlighted the need to help our community through a dry goods drive for St. Vincent de Paul at Christmas. They have also helped towards updating our homework policy giving some very clear and mature opinions on the matter. Their desire to have a more up to date computer room in the DLS building has come in to being as has their suggestion to allow children to read during break times. They have also help shape the direction of assemblies by their observation of what is working well and what needs some improvement in our school.
