Student Council Training Day – November 2012
The day was facilitated by Máirin O’Toole, Loreto Bray and Blathnaidh Colhoun EDO in Croke Park. It was attended by close to 100 students and 20 teachers including teachers and pupils from three of the primary schools.
Aim of the Day
The aim of the day was to give students the opportunity to experience leadership in action while also providing them with the tools to run their students councils effectively. Students met in their own school groups but experienced the challenges of running meetings with people they had never met before. Students worked on tasks and case studies together.
Evaluation of the Day
The evaluations were overwhelmingly positive. Students and teachers commented on the professional set-up in the venue. Students enjoyed meeting different people through the day. Groups had been carefully arranged before the event in direct response to students’ requests last year to be given the opportunity to mix and share ideas with students from other Loreto schools.
