Student council liaison teachers Mr. Shane Kelly and Ms. Catriona Walsh facilitated the members as they negotiated their way through the process.

This also involved the parents council, staff and the board of management.

The new jumper is the fruit of considerable effort, students Kyra Stodel, Witkoria Wojtkiewicz, Fionn McEvoy Mullally and Poppy Mullen helped to display the jumper in the picture above.

Fair play to all involved!
