Student Council

Desmond College actively encourages its students to participate fully in the life of the school. In co-operation with the Board of Management, parents and teacher, the Student Council promotes the interests of the school and involves students in the affairs of the school.

The student council is an elected group of student who represent the views of the entire student body in Desmond College and Gaelcholaiste Ui Chonba. The student council consists of 14 members from each year. Although senior students make up the committee of chairperson, treasurer and secretary, the contribution of each student is given equal consideration and respect.
