Student Council

Published Date



As a new academic year began in Ardscoil Mhuire, so did the process of appointing the new Student Representative Council. Gillian Ryan was selected as Head Girl, capably assisted by Rebecca McManus as Deputy Head Girl. All classes have elected enthusiastic and committed prefects and deputy prefects.

Last October our annual Mad Hair and Colours Day took place. The whole school community embraced the spirit of the occasion and made it a very enjoyable and memorable day for all. €490 was raised for The Blue Box Appeal.

On Tuesday March 15th , the S.R.C. organised a colours day with a blue theme in aid of ACT for Meningitis. This event raised €445. One of our fifth year prefects, Leah Melling, organised the fantastic “Lola’s Ball” in aid of this charity. She is to be commended for her hard work and commitment. It was a truly wonderful event and the S.R.C., as well as the whole school community, is very proud of her.

At our recent Academic Awards Night Rebecca Collins (I Breandáin) received the Sr. Andrew Award in recognition of her dedication to the role of prefect. Congratulations and well done Rebecca.

In April, Amy Cullen (III Eilísh) and Leah Melling (V) addressed the Board of Management, on behalf of the student body. They described their experiences of school and had a very meaningful discussion about the successes of Ardscoil Mhuire as well as improvements that could be made. The members of the Board of Management were delighted with their presentations.

The S.R.C is a vital link between the student body and staff of Ardscoil Mhuire. Students are encouraged to be actively involved in school life through the S.R.C. Thank you to our Head Girl, Deputy Head Girl, prefects and deputy prefects for their hard work, dedication and enthusiasm all year.

(As the academic year nears its end, we on the S.R.C. would like to take this opportunity to wish all the 3rd and 6th years the very best in the exams and wish you all a happy and safe summer 2016).
