Compass Annual General Meeting – 27th November, 2021 at 11.00 am
All Compass Representatives and parents/guardians from your school are invited to register and participate in the A.G.M. which will be conducted over Zoom.
Compass are delighted that Adam Lambe - Leas-Uachtarán (Deputy President) of the Irish Second-Level Students Union has agreed to speak on “The importance of students as a stakeholder.”
Adam has been involved in activism since he was 16 and was elected as a regional officer for the ISSU. He has a passion for student voice and youth participation in decision making, he has worked with many different youth organisations on issues ranging from youth mental health to direct provision. He has graduated from second-level education this year and is currently taking a gap year to volunteer full-time in the ISSU.
The Irish Second-Level Students’ Union (ISSU), is the national representative body for second-level students in the Republic of Ireland. They provide support, training and assistance to their member student councils. Through this support, the ISSU aims to foster a stronger student voice at all levels of the education system. It is the belief of the ISSU that second-level students should be involved in all matters that directly affect them and be respected as an equal stakeholder in their education. Their goal is to assist in developing a school system that fully empowers students as partners in their education. The ISSU has been heavily involved and are a key player in the Government’s Advisory Group.
