Student Council

We are very proud to announce that we now have a newly elected student council.

St. Joseph’s Primary School considers it important that the pupils should play an active, positive role in the life of their school and believes that our Student Council will help to achieve this.

The role of the Student Council is to:

  • Provide an opportunity for pupils to voice their opinions and offer suggestions in relation to many aspects of school life.
  • Discuss issues relevant to our school and encourage and promote initiatives from the pupils.
  • Offer an opportunity for all pupils to voice their opinions on proposed changes and thereby play a very significant role in improving our school.
  • Act as a channel of communication within the school organisation, between pupils and between home and school.

Junior Buddy Bench

The Student Council suggested the idea of having a ‘Buddy Bench’ in the playground for anyone who felt lonely.  Any child can use the bench to make a new friend.  The children from the junior classes came up with a design and the bench was painted with the help of the children to reflect their ideas.  The sun is shining against the blue sky in the background and the multi-coloured seat imitates a rainbow.
