I wish to inform you that Michael Gallagher, Principal of St Kieran’s Primary School, has advised of his decision to resign at the end of the 2021 school year. Michael has served the community for almost 5 years now and led the school with great care and sensitivity through the difficult and uncharted waters of the COVID pandemic. I have appreciated his patience, personal concern, professional competence and his attentiveness to fostering strong relationships within the school community and parish. The process of finding a suitable successor is being arranged. Later in the year, we will celebrate Michael’s significant contribution to Catholic Education at St Kieran’s and thank him for his excellent service and leadership.
