Drogheda Educate Together Secondary School Appoints Principal

Educate Together is delighted to announce Susan Campbell as newly-appointed Principal of Drogheda Educate Together Secondary School, opening this September. 

Originally from East Meath Susan worked as a marketing manager before embarking on her teaching career in 2002.  Susan taught French, Spanish and Business in St. Peter’s College Dunboyne before moving to Coláiste na hInse in Bettystown.  Here Susan gained vital experience in a start-up environment as Acting Deputy Principal.

Susan worked as Deputy Principal in Sacred Heart Secondary School in Drogheda before moving to Clonturk Community College as Principal. Clonturk Community College is a co-educational post-primary school under the patronage of CDETB with Educate Together as trustee partners and, since its opening in 2016, Susan has led the establishment of this vibrant and rapidly growing school in Dublin City.

Says Susan:

"I am so excited to be returning to my community and working with parents and students alike 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. 

Drogheda Educate Together Secondary School will have a culture of high educational expectations for both students and staff alike but also a culture of inclusion whereby every individual in the classroom is provided with real learning opportunities. Our students will be delivered an education which allows them to think in their own unique way and on their own terms."

Says Gerry McKevitt, school manager:

"Over the years, Susan has proven herself to be a dynamic, visionary and innovative educator. The emerging school community of Drogheda ETSS could not be in safer hands."

The meeting will include an introduction to new principal Susan Campbell, enrolment/ Admissions for the 2019/20 academic year and accommodation arrangements for the 2019/20 academic year.
