Last year the Student Council worked on improving conditions for students in the school. Issues are discussed at meetings with the liaison teachers Ms. McDermott and Ms. Quinn and then with Ms. Greene. The Student Council introduced two microwaves for student use in the canteen which have been a big hit. Sanitary products have been placed in the girls’ toilets and are replaced regularly. In November, three members traveled to Dublin to attend The ISSU Regional Council in Trinity College. This was a great opportunity to discuss issues affecting school students nationally. At Christmas, music was played over the intercom and good luck notes placed on the desks of all students sitting the mock exams. A noticeboard has been created at the reception to raise awareness of LGBT terms. In January, all the members received training from The Irish Second Level Union( ISSU) and other Wexford schools were also in attendance. Thanks to the chairperson Séan Thompson who organised this event and hard luck to Séan who missed out on the role of International Officer with the ISSU by one vote recently.
