Our school is delighted to welcome Mr Alan Costello as principal, Mr Costello who hails from Claremorris Co Mayo said the following about his recent appointment.”It is a huge honour to be appointed Principal of Coláiste Eoin and I feel very privileged to take on this role. I hope to work to support staff and students on their journey through the school and I am looking forward to the new and exciting challenges that this position will bring. I will endeavour, in collaboration with the partners in Coláiste Eoin in continuing to progress, provide and improve the highest standards of education for the students of the school going forward, enabling all of our learners to do their very best. My vision for the school aims to create an environment of inclusivity and equity. The students will be at the heart of everything we do and I hope to make school an active learning environment where students are safe, happy, confident, engaged and respected. It is through this relationship-based approach that positive relationships are built between the school, students and parents and where pupils and parents voices are heard.
I look forward to working with all the stake-holders to cultivate a welcoming, stimulating, caring and thriving school for all that is respectful of the long heritage of the school. I will strive to establish an innovative school where all students can develop and where all types of achievements are celebrated. I believe that every student that comes to this school can be whatever they want to be if they work hard, make good choices and show respect to all. I am so excited to be working with the Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board to establish an innovative school where all students can flourish in a mutually respectful environment and where the wider community feel involved in the life of the school. I wish to ensure that all student needs are met and that all students are encouraged and supported to reach their potential. This is a school where educational excellence is found in a truly caring environment. We will always aim to deliver a high quality education service, to meet existing & emerging needs throughout the West Wicklow and East Carlow region.”
