23 Dec Student Council Presentations Christmas 2018
In all a total of €2868.74 was raised, with the amount presented including donations collected at the School Carol Service, plus further donations from the sale of Christmas Cards for the Irish Cancer Society.
The Student Council raised their money for the Boyne Fishermen’s Rescue and Recovery and the Irish Cancer Society from Non-Uniform Day.
The Council did a really good job in promoting this appeal from early on, and the volume of food donated is a testimony to that.
The Student Council was revamped this year to make it a truely democratic body, and the students have responded in kind.
The Council is making its presence felt, and that can only be a good thing. The Council is the body that is lifting all boats, and it is very noticeable that students are coming forward in bigger numbers and taking ownership of a wider range of areas and issues in the school. This is how it should be.
Badges were presented to the newly-elected Officers and members of the Council last week. The Officers were presented at Wednesday’s Assembly, and the remaining members were presented on Friday morning in advance of the Presentations.
In advance of Friday’s end of term Assembly, at which the cheques and hamper were formally presented, the Council held a reception for their guests, where words were spoken and photos were taken. All Council members were present.
