MailShot to NAPD Region 6 Members

A Chara

I trust you are looking forward to a very well earned break from your extremely busy role.
I wish to thank all members who attended our NAPD Region 6 Meitheal in late February; we had the highest turn-out ever with 41 Principals and Deputy Principals present.

Certainly, the high quality speakers, beautiful hotel and wise words of wisdom from our post-dinner speaker, Kerry Manager, Eamon Fitzmaurice, all lent themselves for making it very worthwhile.

The following resourced were emailed to all those whom registered for Meitheal 2016;
  • NAPD Region 6 Meitheal 2016 Report
  • Copies of presentations from our Speakers, Mr. Alan Mongey (One Hour Classes) and Ms. Máire Ní Bhróithre (Centre for School Leadership).
  • Excel Spreadsheet and screen-grab of a curriculum which operates on a 50/45/40 Minute basis with 7 periods a day (45/40 Minute classes on Fridays).

Please sign up for email notifications regarding events, meetings, support, useful contacts, resources and tweets on our NAPD Region 6 Blog
Once you have registered, you will be notified of changes and announcements.

Our next event will be a late lunch meeting in June 2016, to mark retirements and update members on the latest from NAPD Executive.  With the ‘whirlwind’ of change, lack of clarity and not to mind the general degree of additional work that seems to arrive on school leaders’ desks, such meetings are essential to brief ourselves on the priorities.  The informal collegiality that exists is also very important.
