Kingswood Community College

Student Council

Kingswood Community College has got straight to work with setting up a student council. Elections were held in early October and seven members were elected by their peers. The Student Council aims to be the voice of our pupils, they hold weekly meetings addressing relevant topics and are often at the forefront of decision making within our school. The students here in Kingswood are also represented on national level as we are a member school of the Irish Second Level Students Union (ISSU).

The student council at Kingswood Community College plays a pivotal roll in our college The council has gone from strength to strength and involves itself in numerous events/activities and policy making decisions that make Kingswood Community College the college students want to attend. We have been involved in editing and drafting our learning code and points system, the college uniform, pe uniform, and are currently working on the role of student leadership here in the college. We have worked closely with our teachers, the BOM and the Parent’s Association to bring about meaningful change and improve our college for the benefit of all students.
There have been a number of activities that the Students Council is particularly proud of, in particular the election of a number of our student council representatives to Dail na Nóg and Comhairle na Nóg.

The Council

Our student council consists of two elected representatives from each class (1 male and 1 female). Within the council additional post holders also take responsibility for the roles of chairperson, treasurer, secretary, PR officers and so on. The student’s council has a constitution and all meetings are minuted. All student council representatives have in service training around the duties attached to their role but also encompassing leadership, communication and listening skills.

This Year, the Student Council has focused on Wellbeing and Mental Health.
