Our Prefects

Head Boy Welcome

As the 2019 Head Boy of Balbriggan Community College, I would like to wish you all members of BCC a successful year ahead.

To have been chosen as Head Boy gives me a great sense of achievement, but also responsibility. One thing I would like to put forward as the new school year begins is that any student can come to me for help or guidance whenever they need. This, for me, is the main message I would like to get across to the student body. I have always been a huge advocate of Balbriggan Community College and how strong it pushes for diversity and inclusion of everyone, no matter who they want to be. This is something that makes me forever grateful and proud to be part of a community of open and welcoming people. I hope as head boy I can contribute as much to the school as it has to me. The role of head boy is a task I am extremely excited to take on. There is nobody I’d love to have by my side more than Niamh Russell, who will no doubt about it shine this year as Head Girl. 

I would urge you to make the most of your time in school and to take all the opportunities that come your way in the academic year ahead. 

Best Regards,

Cian Mooney

Head Girl Welcome

For those who don’t know me and those who do, my name is Niamh Russell and it’s gives me great pleasure to say that I’ve been chosen for Head Girl 2019/20 in Balbriggan Community College. This was such a shock for me in the beginning, never in a million years did I think that I would have been picked being that I wasn’t the most confident person in the world, but a lot has changed.

I 100% can say that doing transition year really benefited me in terms of stepping up and guided me to be the mature and confident student I am today. I am beyond delighted to be the Head Girl and I know this is something that I’m going to enjoy every moment of!

I’m so excited for this year and all the responsibilities that come with the job, I am so looking forward to be working with my partner in crime, Head Boy Cian Mooney and if you ask me you couldn’t have been given a better head boy.

I know for myself anyways this is such a big deal, and I still can’t even express how over the moon I am. School has always been my thing, I work hard and put the time in and 6th year won’t be any different! 

I couldn’t actually imagine being in any other school, I think it all just fits and everyone here is recognized as a unique individual and made feel welcome here. Our school is like this one giant jigsaw puzzle and it has all these incredible pieces connecting it together as one, the students, the staff, the parents, the incredible work ethic, every book and journal, it all just connects and becomes one.

Head Girl is a role, someone who is chosen to represent the student body, it creates a more personal and positive link between the Students and teachers. I’m so proud to be the Head Girl 2019/20 in Balbriggan Community College, thank you to anyone and everyone who had my back and believed in me.
