Ennistymon Vocational School

Student Council

Ennistymon Vocational School was established in 2011 and has been growing in strength and numbers since. 2020 saw our largest and most proactive Student Council to date.

The Student Council is a representative structure for students only. It gives students a voice, allows them to become involved in the affairs of the school. Students learn to work in partnership with school management, staff & parents.

Elections are held in October each year. Our student council is made up of two elected representatives from each class group from first to sixth year. It is their role of the elected representatives to bring issues & concerns that may arise among their classmates to the attention of the Student Council for discussion.

Each year the Student Council draws up a list of tasks and areas that they feel could benefit the overall student body. They sub divide into smaller groups and get to work on achieving these tasks.
