Dia dhuit. Is mise Jess Clancy. I am príomhbhuachaill for the 2018-2019 Student Council. The student council is a group of students who congregate to think of ideas to improve school life. We help to organise fundraisers and after school clubs. We are made up of twelve students who were voted onto the student council by third, fourth, fifth and sixth class.
