This year, 2021/2022, the Student Council have also been selling tea/coffee at lunchtime as part of a takeaway service for the students. Archbishop McHale College hats had been purchased and the Student Council sold them at a student rate onsite before the Christmas in time for the cold spell! They have been meeting regularly to discuss ways to implement new ideas which the students have come up with.

Here at AMC, we encourage students to use their voice.
