Apologies for how this information is being sent but 'Komeer' is acting up again!!!

The BOM are pleased to announce the appointment of Marie Rossiter-Gargan as Principal of St. John of God School, The Faythe effective from 6th January 2020.

Marie will join the Faythe from her current position as Principal of Our Lady's Island N.S..

Liam Turner conveyed his intention to retire to the BOM in September but the advertisement and interview process only concluded yesterday. 

The Annual Report on 'matters relating to the operation and performance of the school' is published on the website today / see 'Parents' Tab' / see Reports and contains the following message: - 

I plan to retire from teaching on 5/1/20 and, in submitting my final report, I would like to pay huge personal thanks to all who have helped me professionally and personally since my appointment in 2011. I would like to thank the original interview panel and the BOM who placed their trust in me when I was first appointed and thank successive BOMs and Parents’ Associations who have supported me unfailingly in the intervening eight and a half years.

The staff (teachers, support and ancillary) do an admirable job in what, at times, can be very trying circumstances. The parents, guardians and pupils coupled with the incredible community, that has surrounded the school since the doors were first opened in 1875, continue to be heartbeat of this unique school that it has been an absolute personal privilege to work in.

As it has adapted and changed to meet the needs of a changing Ireland I have no doubt that the Faythe School is in a very good position to continue to address these needs as the second decade of the second millennium draws to a close.

In wishing all connected with the Faythe School the very best, I look forward to the school’s continued progress and evolution, albeit from a distance!

   L.Turner. (Principal ~ September 2011 – January 2020)
