The Student Council is the representative body for current students in Blackrock College and acts as a link between the students and other parts of the College infrastructure.
There are thirteen student members, two from each Year group with an additional third member from Transition Year, plus two representatives of the Boarding School. Other students may be co-opted from time to time, for example it is the practice to co-opt the Head Cheerleader during the Senior and Junior Cup campaigns.
The Student Council is chaired by a 6th Year student with a 5th Year student acting as Secretary. The Principal, Deputy Principal and Academic Administrator attend Student Council meetings which take place every two weeks throughout the school year.
