43 students were elected from all year groups to represent the student voice this year in RCS. I have emailed you the names from each class. We had our first meeting last Thursday where Mikey O’Regan was elected as chairperson, Adam Kelly as Deputy Chairperson and Rachael Kennedy as Secretary. The treasurer is Sophia Van Beusekom. To adhere to Social Distancing rules only one Rep from each class will attend each meeting every week…this will be done on a rotating basis. Last week we looked at the ‘RCS Health and Safety Control of Covid -19 Policy for students’. No studentshad any issues with what was in the policy. I read it through with the students so they were aware of the standards of behaviour expected of students and consequences of failure to comply with the standards of behaviour. Next Tuesday 13th October, Sr.Finola will facilitate on zoom a training session with our council members ( a selection of them). I am having a zoom session with her this week to finalise arrangements. Ms. Cullinane.
