CEIST Induction Days for Newly Appointed Principals and Deputy Principals

CEIST invited newly appointed Principals and Deputy Principals of CEIST schools to the education office in Maynooth on the 17th and 18th of August 2010.

The main objectives of the induction days were to give the new senior managment appointees a stronger understanding of the workings of the Trust and also provide an opportunity to meet staff members within the education office.

The Directors of each of the departments within CEIST used both induction days to give a detailed presentation on the workings of each department and the services they provide to CEIST schools.

There were twenty four new senior managment appointments in CEIST schools for 2010-11. A most enjoyable day was had by all who attended and CEIST staff were very grateful that our new Principals and Deputy Principals allocated us some of their valuable time to attend the induction days.

We offer our best wishes to all of the Principals and Deputy Principals in their new role within the school.

October Mission Month 2010

October in the Church calendar is a time to reflect on Mission, as well as to renew our Missionary work for today. The theme for 2010 and the mission month of October is “Together in Mission”.

As a Church in Ireland we must always remember that unless we are engaged with those whose needs are the greatest across our World we cannot fully shared the Christian call to “ be missionary”.
