Student Council 2013/2014
The student council has had a busy year in St. Kevin’s College. After the elections in 2011, each member proudly wears their newly acquired badges. They meet regularly on Tuesday mornings, discuss issues raised by students and plan their agenda.
They were involved in helping to plan and run what has become St. Kevin’s College annual Grandparents day. This was a great success and all members of the student council were involved. Ms, Mc Entee from the Religion Department and also a co-ordinator of the student council, helped the members make St. Brigid’s crosses which were then given to delighted grandparents to mark the occasion.
SHAVE OR DYE
They are currently involved in registering the college for the Shave or Dye fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society. Many students have signed up for this and are eagerly awaiting their individual registration card and t-shirt.
Also, the student council are responsible for informing and encouraging other students about the benefits of signing up for the student discount card, available to all students at a cost of 13euros for two years. The council have been inundated with requests for the card.
