My name is Erin Hagan and I am one of three Deputy Head Girls.  My role is to support the Head Girl and the other Deputy Heads with any appointed tasks.  It is important that I set a good example to my fellow students at all times.  I will endeavour to act as a point of contact for any student in need of support and guidance and I look forward to representing the school during forth-coming presentations and assemblies.

My name is Rebekah Clarke and I am the mentor for all Year 10 pupils.  As a Mentor I hope to make myself available once a week in the Library for any Year 10 pupil who wants to come for a chat if they are experiencing some problem with school or home life.

Hopefully I will have a sympathetic ear and be able to solve their problems or at least contact a member of staff who might be able to help them.

I am also looking forward to attending all School Council Meetings, in an effect to improve the College for our pupils.

Hi, my name is Dearbhla Molloy; I am the Boat and Eco-Schools' Prefect.  For the past 5 years I have been getting the Ferry to school each day.  My role as Boat Prefect is to firstly ensure that every pupil on the boat is presented properly; wearing their uniform to a high standard!  Secondly, to ensure all pupils are behaving on the boat in an appropriate manner.

It is also my duty to ensure that all pupils follow the safety instructions on the boat and represent our school in a proper manner.  My role as Eco-Schools' Prefect is to certify that everyone in the school strives to be as Eco-friendly as possible.  For example, ensuring that every teacher turns their lights off when they leave their rooms for a long period of time.  I will attend meetings, along with other members of the Eco-Schols' committee, to ensure that we all follow the Eco regulations to help improve our school.

I will also take part in School Council meetings along with, our Head Girl, Deputy Head Girls, Mentors, another Prefect like myself and all Form Captains.

 

Head Girl

Head Girl, Sarah Bell

Hello, my name is Sarah Bell and I have recently been appointed to the position of Head Girl.  My responsibilities and duties to both staff and pupils are of great importance to me and I intend to carry these out to the best of my ability.  Hopefully all the students will find me easy to talk to and they will be able to inform me about anything which they feel needs to be improved, in the life of the school.

St Columba's College is a Rights Respecting School and our rights are always at the centre of all decisions, which is why the Student Council is such an important aspect of school life.  I believe that when students are in a happy school environment they endeavour to work harder and therefore achieve their targets.  I aspire to being a good role model and hopefully can represent St Columba's College in a fitting manner.

My name is Niamh Lavery and I am currently the Year 8 Prefect.  My role is to make sure that all the year 8s integrate successfully into the school and to help and support them when they feel like they can’t approach teachers with a problem such as bullying.  It is my duty to represent the school during public occasions by speaking in public, meeting guests, escorting visitors and generally helping with fundraising events. 

 

I am also Sports Prefect and my role is to attend or assist in the organising of most sporting events and provide match reports which will then appear on our school website.  Furthermore, I try my best to support and encourage other pupils when playing alongside me in matches, since I have been a member of the school camogie team for the last five years.  I look forward to being a member of the Head Team for the 2014/2015 academic year.
