Coláiste Dhúlaigh’s Student Council was set up in 2005. Each class in the school is represented, with Class Representatives nominated and elected democratically. The Council meets four to five times a year. The school has been careful to ensure that in so far as possible that they are responsible for setting their agenda and running their own affairs, thus developing a culture of democratic participation. The Council is supported by a Liaison Teacher who facilitates the development in the student body of the organisational skills necessary for running the Council.
