Student Council 2021/22
The Student Council members have an important role here at Scoil An Linbh Íosa. Elections for the 2021/2022 school year were held on Friday 19th of November. Due to COVID restrictions, the process was a little different this year. Despite this, it was a very exciting election with exceptionally enthusiastic candidates.
This year’s elections involved candidates from the Fifth and Sixth classes. To begin with all children from these classes were invited to nominate candidates. On Friday 12th of November prospective candidates were invited to address their classes in order to convince their peers that they had the characteristics and traits to make a good student counsellor. The standard of these speeches was remarkable. The election campaigns began in earnest with colourful posters displayed throughout the school.
On voting day there was huge excitement in the school. Class teachers took their classes down to the Polling Station (PE hall) so that the children could vote in privacy. Then the candidates waited to hear the results which were announced over the intercom on Monday 22nd of November.
This year there are 10 pupils on the Student Council. Over 40 brave children ran for these 10 seats! The process saw the election of two members from each Sixth class and one member from each Fifth class. Furthermore there will be a representative from the Assisted learning Classes on the new Student Council.
Congratulations to the new Student Council on being elected. Well done to all children who put their names forward for election. You all did an amazing job and should be very proud of yourselves!
