With some new faces on the Executive team I thought it was important for our first meeting to be face to face. Our colleagues from Irish Primary Principals Network (IPPN) provided us with a wonderful opportunity to tag our meeting to the back of the IPPN Annual Conference held in Dublin in late January.
It was a very productive meeting. We conducted a review of our strategic plan and began the process of updating the operational plan for the next two years. It provided us with time to pause and reflect on all that has been achieved over the past two years under the leadership of Fiona Forbes. As an Executive and as members I am sure that you would want to congratulate Fiona on her achievements. As I take on the leadership role, I can safely say that I have been handed an organisation that is in good shape and ready for the next challenge.
I will provide a more comprehensive update early in March and I look forward to working with you for the next two years.
