PRINCIPAL (Teaching)

(With two days Principal Release)

For one school year 2018/2019

The Board of Governors of Bunscoil an Iúir are seeking a principal for one year.  We need a person who can assess and adapt quickly to a new school situation.  We expect that person to lead by example and to involve the whole staff in moving Bunscoil an Iúir forward.  Good communication skills are essential in keeping the staff united and in liasiing with the Naíscoil, the PTA and other outside agencies.  Other challenges will include dealing with issues such as plans to relocate the school, the pressures of school finances and promoting Bunscoil an Iúir in the local area.

There is a great team spirit in the school within all sections and the parents are very supportive.  Staff are very active in providing a full programme of After-school activities and in promoting community involvement.

This is a great opportunity to demonstrate leadership qualities and bring your own vision to a thriving school.
