A student council is a representative structure for students only, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students.

The Council is elected by the students for the students. Each class has one representative on the council. Yearheads also nominate a male and a female representative from each year group to participate on the council. 

The Student Council has many benefits in Our Lady’s Secondary School.
