6th YEAR STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL (SRC)
The Student Representative Council work with the 6th Year Head, Mr Knaggs, providing leadership to their peers and ensuring that 6th Year students have a collective voice, allowing them to communicate effectively with the school management throughout their Leaving Certificate year. They help organise 6th Year events, most notably Graduation, an important day that marks the end of their time at the College. The S.R.C. also provide leadership to the whole student body by good example and being willing to support other year groups when needed.
HEAD BOY 2022/23 - RICHARD TOBIN
“It was a huge privilege for me to be elected as Head Boy. The other lads interviewed were all really strong candidates and I know they would have been very suitable in the role. I'm really looking forward to working with them and the other members of the S.R.C . to be the leaders of the school community and linking in to our work in the Student Council. I'm hoping to make 6th Year as smooth as possible for my year, listen to opinions around the school on what could be improved and try get everyone involved in the school community in extra-curricular activities. I think it's going to be a really great year for the school, let's do it!”
Dress Up Day
Our last dress-up day in the school was great craic, we all co-ordinated to dress up as Max Wall’s minions!
We were blown away by the support of our Movember fundraiser during November and we were delighted to be the 18th highest fund-raising organisation in Ireland! Well done to Cillian Doyle who was the highest fundraiser in our team. Thanks to everyone that was involved and spread our message during the month, we really appreciate it.
6th Year Area
We’ve decorated our locker area to get into the Christmas mood before our exams start.
We had our Domino's Christmas Party to celebrate the end of the exams, lots of pizza and intense games of table tennis! Thanks to Mr Knaggs for ordering the pizza.
Organising Graduation & Debs
We met with our parents reps to start organising our graduation and debs ceremonies. For the graduation we have organised the ring measurements and the venue. For the debs we've decided on our venue and the date. Thanks very much to Elaine, Laura, Niall and Adrienne for their continued help.
1st Year Talk During Positive Mental Health Week
To highlight the importance of looking after yourself and making the most of your time in STMC, we had a chat with the 1st Years during the week. We gave our advice on pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, enjoying the craic in school, balancing study, trying new things in Transition Year and life outside of school. The 1st Years are a great bunch of lads and huge thanks to Mr O'Connor for helping us organise this opportunity to chat with them.
Careers Talk With Recent Past Pupils
Mr Hogan organised for a few lads from 6th Year 2022 to come in and chat with us over pizza about life after secondary school, college courses and how to make the most of the rest of our study time. It was a really worthwhile chat and gave all of 6th Year a really great insight into what we do next. Thanks to John Gilsenan for organising it with the lads in his year to come in and huge thanks to Mr Hogan for organising the great evening and the continuous help and support with our career guidance.
Between ourselves and Mr Knaggs we've organised our group of cheerleaders for the cup games. We fundraised ourselves through a bake sale and our own money to replace broken megaphones and get a new banner for the games featuring Saint Michael in battle. We wrote new chants and taught them to the Junior School in a mini-rally. As well, we filmed our Cheerleading Video with stops in to Encore Café in the Merrion Center & Donnybrook Stadium, bumping into Ross Molony & Tommy Bowe on our way to start the Rally! Thanks very much to the Parents Association and the Past Pupils Union for their support and help with the organising, we really appreciate it. There's been a great atmosphere at the games so well done to everyone in the stand for the loud support- keep bringing it!
