The aim of the St. Raphaela’s Student Council each year is to work with the Board of management, staff and parents for the benefit of the whole school community. We seek to provide a line of communication between students, management, staff and parents, representing the views of the student body on matters of concern to them.
The role of the Student Council is to:
- Enhance communication between students, management, staff and parents
- Promote an environment conducive to educational and personal development
- Promote friendship and respect among students
- Support management and staff in the development of the school
Represent the views of students on matters of concern to them
The student council have a meeting once every two weeks usually on a Friday during lunchtime
In October some members of the Council attended a Training Day hosted by The Union of Secondary Students of Ireland. There were discussions and debates throughout the day and we all found the day very interesting and helpful.
