As school President, leading the student leadership team is not just an honour but a journey of personal growth at Malone College. Leading the team and having a voice in decision-making makes us feel truly valued. Our regular meetings with students of all year groups mean that we can discuss issues close to all students and reflect the whole school community. We are a team that cares and listens, and being President fills me with pride and a sense of belonging.

WHAT IS THE STUDENT LEADERSHIP TEAM?
We are made up of a small group of students from each Year Group within Malone College. There are 2 tiers of the Student Team which are the ‘Junior Leadership Team’ which is made up of Year 13 & 14 students and a larger group of students from Year 8 to Year 12.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We are the voice for all the Students in Malone College. If students feel that something is not working well in the School then we try to pass this information onto the Senior Leadership of the School so they can try and solve the problem. We also meet regularly and try to come up with events that we can run which contribute to school spirit. Finally, we aim to improve the welfare of the community living around the School.
WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING?
We have carried out fundraising activities in school for a range of local and national charities
Put together hundreds of filled shoe boxes for the Samaritans Purse Shoe Box Appeal
Brought about updates to the uniform policy in Malone College
Attended training events and represented the College on visits to events e.g. NICCY Rights of the Child 2019
Hold assemblies to promote wellbeing and promote the student voice
Update notice boards to promote events
Hold surveys to find out issues affecting students and gather ideas for improving the school
HOW CAN YOU CONTACT US?
If you are a Student then the easiest way to contact us would be to simply go up and talk to the Student Council Member for your year group. If you have any ideas/concerns that you would like the Student Council to look at, then you can also write them down and put the note in the ‘Student Council Box’ which is now located in the Canteen.
If you are a Parent/Member of the public then you can phone the School and leave a message and your phone number for Mrs Hamilton who will then contact you.
