Students Council
We are very proud of our Students Council in Gorey Community School. The Student Council helps to promote an environment conducive to educational and personal development. It also enhances communication between students, management, staff and parents. Students are nominated from the class tutor groups and elected by the students in the year group. Three representatives are elected from each year group so that we have eighteen members on the council. Council members meet once a week at lunchtime. They decide what they want to discuss at the meeting. There is a suggestion box at the reception and students can write their suggestions or contact a Students council member if they have a matter they want discussed to improve the students’ life in the school.

The Council members organise such fundraising activities such as Jersey/no uniform days and awareness days to highlight the activities of the council. The council also organise campaigns such as non smoking, healthy lifestyles and anti-bullying. The chairperson and secretary have regular meetings with the principal where they discuss matters of relevance to the students. A notice board in the school keeps the students informed about the activities of the Student Council.

We hope that you will consider joining the Student council.
