Student Council News (May 2022)
The Student Council has been very busy since Christmas. We were involved in the organisation and promotion of several different activities.
1. Dress as a Book Character Day
On 3rd March the students of St.Columba’s dressed up as their favourite book characters and brought in their matching book. Many nice photographs were taken in each class and several book conversations were had. Students also brought in €2 for the Jack and Jill Foundation. An amazing total of
€700 was raised. Well done everyone!
2. Wear Green for St.Patrick’s Day
On 16th March staff and students dressed up in green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone also brought in €2 as a donation to the Irish Red Cross who are currently helping the people of Ukraine.
3. Easter Art Competition 2022
In the last week of school before the Easter holidays many students took part in the Easter art competition. Students were able to enter either 2D or 3D art. A winner was selected from each class in the school and there was an overall winner for the best chick, best bunny and best bonnet. Congratulations to all the winners! And well done to everyone who took part in the competition. The standard of art was exceptional.
4. Easter Raffle
An Easter raffle was organised by the Parents’ Association, however many fifth class students helped out with the selling of tickets around the school. A huge thanks to the parents and students who lead this.
5. Easter Radio Show
On the final few days of school the student council made an Easter Radio Show for students to enjoy. It was filled with news reports, jokes, activities to do over the holidays and book recommendations.
That is all the news at present. Please check out this page again before the summer holidays as the student council has many more activities planned in the final school term. By: Alexie
