Student Leadership and Voice

Student leaders act as role models and mentors in St. Joseph’s.
Students are strongly encouraged to take up leadership roles within the school serving as role models and mentors for all the students in our school, and helping to build and promote a positive, safe and happy school environment by their presence and example. Student Mentors have responsibility for specific students in First Year. They give time to these students and are kind and approachable to the students in their care.
Being a student leader in St. Joseph’s enables those involved to develop personally into effective leaders, it creates cohesion between the senior students and the rest of the student body and it aims to use the strengths of the senior leaders to benefit and inspire our younger students. The engagement of the student voice in actions and decisions which shape their learning environment is at the centre of our leadership structures
Our Student Council is a representative structure for students. They work in partnership with school management, staff, students, and parents for the benefit of the school and the students.
The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership skills by organising and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body.
Students are democratically elected by each year group and regularly meet with the Student Council coordinating teacher, Ms. Mc Hugh.
Any student can contact the Student Council by:
  • Approaching their Class Representative.
The Student Council will keep all stakeholders updated of their activities via:
  • Student Council Notice Board
  • School Website & Twitter Account.
  • Internal School Announcements
