Student Council 2020-2021

Student Council Elections 2020/21

At Scoil Mhuire Lourdes, our Student Council members will represent the voice and opinions of all the children within our school. Through our Student Council we aim to develop young leadership skills, whilst supporting student democracy. The Student Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. It benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

The Student Council is run and led by the children, supported by a member of staff, and takes an active role in making decisions and suggestions on behalf of the children in the school.

1st class St. Brigids: Kamile and Sophie

1st class: Room 4: Niya and Harley

We thank all the girls who worked on the Student Council last year who helped to make our school a better place.

Reading for fun and helping others in 6th

As the evenings get darker and Covid-19 makes all of our worlds a little bit smaller, we ask everyone to join us on a reading adventure. Whether it’s a trip to the Secret Garden or a voyage across the seas with Captain Hook, reading helps us to expand our horizons and escape from reality for a little while! 6th class are kicking off their reading journey this month by taking part in two reading programmes! The girls are reading to raise money for MS Ireland and also to boost their literacy skills in the Carlow County Library Reading Ninjas programme. We hope that you will all join us! Take a look at us with our first books! Watch this space to see how many we manage to read!

SPELLATHON 2020

This year we were blown away by the fantastic response to our Hallowe’en Spellathon. In total our school, raised €3426.70!!!!!

ALL of this money will go towards activities for the children such as Drama, Zumba and lots of more workshops throughout the year.

Thank you to each and every one of our families who supported our school this year.

We are very grateful!
