Confey College Students’ Council acts as a voice for the students in the school. Each class elects 2 representatives – one male and one female. The first Council elections took place in 1996 and since then, the Council has met regularly with a Staff Liaison Officer. The Council drew up a new constitution in 1997-1998 and elects its own Executive Committee. This Executive consists of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Relations Officer and other officers.
The school makes available a subvention to the Student Council to finance various projects and suggestions for improvement in the school. The Students’ Council contributed significantly to the review of the school’s Code of Discipline and Guidelines on Bullying documents. The Council has also engaged in fundraising for charitable causes.
The role of the Students’ Council is continually evolving within the school and will continue to play a significant role in the developing of school policies.
The Students’ Council for 2014 to 2015 are:
Alan O’Reilly President
Kiva McGing Vice-President
Ellie Ward Secretary
