Student Leadership- Prefect System & Student Council

The role of student Leadership is very important in the life of St Mel’s College and Mr Gacquin is presently finalising the democratic election of students to the Prefect & Student Council Body.

The Prefects have been elected by the individual classes and each of the elected Prefects have been presented with their Badges by our patron Bishop Francis Duffy at the Opening Year Mass. These students will represent the student body at various school events throughout the year and they will be instrumental to the smooth running of the school on a daily basis.

The Student council Election will take place on Thursday October 25th,the day before the Presidential Election. This process will be regulated by the outgoing Student Council and two representatives from each year will be elected to this Council which is provided for under Section 27 of the Education Act 1998.
