On Thursday the 6th of November four members of the student council attended the annual Cork County Comhairle na nÓg meeting in the County Hall. There were students from schools all over Co.Cork there. The Council used this day to show people what they work on and to get students interested in joining. I was interested in their work and signed up. We’ve had one meeting so far, in the Metropole hotel.
What are Comhairle na nÓg:
- Comhairle na nÓg are local youth councils, which give children and young people the opportunity to be involved in the development of local services and policies.
- To give young people in Co. Cork a voice.
