Student Council Update Newsletter
This year’s current Student Council members are a determined and dedicated group of Maryfield students. Over the past number of months the Student Council have had weekly meetings discussing topics such as organising competitions,, events and coming up with new ways to resolve any issues that arises in school. Since forming in October, this year’s Student Council have accomplished several achievements so far:
At the start of the year, we carried out our weekly toilet checks to each year group’s toilets as well as wire checks to ensure a safer and cleaner school.
We had a meeting with Ms. Ryan who spoke to us about CAO booklets for the future and current senior cycle students. We also discussed the school’s digital learning strategy with Ms. McCoy.
We have informed students about the ISSU survey on Covid in schools. We have discussed issues that year groups have brought up including eating arrangements. We have had several meetings with Ms. O’Rourke about issues that have arisen in school. One of the major policies we have discussed has been the new uniform policy of the introduction of trousers. As a group we have discussed potential designs and ideas for the new trousers.
We organised our 12 Days of Christmas competition in December in collaboration with the music department. The competition was a huge success, each year got involved with answering the festive questions. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the students who got involved in our competition.
Most recently, we have begun the process of organising ISIC cards for Maryfield students, which will begin this week. If you would like an application form make sure to come and collect it from us before the due date.
If you any issues or concerns please make sure to inform your student council representative.
