Student Council


Our Student Council was set up in September 2018.  O'Brennan National School believes that pupils have a vital role in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere conducive to happiness and learning. We believe that our Student Council has a vital role to play in achieving this.

The role of the Student Council is to :

-provide an opportunity for children to voice their opinions and offer suggestions on all aspects of school life

-afford our pupils the opportunity to voice their opinions on proposed initiatives and changes in our school

-act as a liaison between the school authority, pupils and home

Classes from 2nd - 6th held elections during the month of September in order to elect two members from each of the aforementioned classes to our Student Council. Children who wished to put their names forward gave their pitch to their respective classes prior to voting.

The Student Council will meet with Ms O'Brien once a month to discuss matters that are important to the pupils in our school.
