• Student Leadership

Leaders act as role models and mentors

Students are strongly encouraged to take up leadership roles within the school. Loreto Secondary School Balbriggan has a successful prefect structure of Head Girl, Deputy Head Girls, Captains, Co-ordinators, Senior Prefects and Class Prefects. The senior leadership team of Captains, Coordinators and Senior Prefects are elected each year from the fifth and sixth year group by their teachers and peers. The senior leaders act as role models and mentors for all the students in our school and help to build and promote a positive, safe and happy school environment by their presence and example. Each prefect has responsibility for a junior class. They give time to this class and are kind and approachable to the students in their care. The co-ordinators are responsible for promoting specific subject areas and wellbeing within the school.

Being a student leader in Loreto Secondary School enables those involved to develop personally into effective leaders, it creates cohesion between the senior students and the rest of the student body and it aims to use the strengths of the senior leaders to benefit and inspire our younger students. The engagement of the student voice in actions and decisions which shape their learning environment is at the centre of our leadership structures. The Department of Education and Skills in their 2019 careers inspection commented as follows;

“It is commendable that students play key leadership roles as senior prefects, mentors, captains, co-ordinators and members of the student council. They are actively involved in promoting positive mental health, peer support and student solidarity”.
