Salesian Secondary College

Newly Appointed Principal

Newly Appointed Principal

Dear Parents & Guardians,

On behalf of the school’s Board of Management it gives me great pleasure to inform you that Caitriona Morgan-O’Brien has been appointed Principal of Salesian Secondary College. Caitriona will take up her role as Principal at the beginning of the new academic year 2019/2020. I'd like to take this opportunity to wish Caitriona every blessing, success and enjoyment in her new role. I have every confidence that Caitriona will cherish, nurture, serve and lead the school and its community well into the future.

This is one of my last email to you as Principal of this wonderful College, I'd like to thank you for your support and friendship during my reign as Principal and while teaching in the College. Being trusted with the position of Principal has been the highlight of my career and I am deeply honoured and grateful to the Salesian Order for appointing me as their first lay principal in 2003 and trusting me with this esteemed position. Salesian Secondary College is a great school and has been my home and family for the past 38 years as teacher and principal and five additional wonderful years as a boarding student from Dunlavin, Co. Wicklow from 1972 - 1977. I call them my formation years and these were the years that gave me the true feeling of what a Salesian school atmosphere is all about. These years contributed greatly to me becoming the person I am and everything I have worked towards and believed in when working with all the fabulous young people and staff that have been part of this great school. I have cherished and valued every minute of my time spent in the College.

A chairde,Míle Buíochas dhaoibh uilig. I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the Salesian Order, the Board of Management, the Parents’ Association, the Staff, the Students and their extended families for giving me the opportunity to serve and lead the school.

Finally, I'd especially like to extend a special thank you to you the Staff of Salesian Secondary College, most especially Mike Lavan and Caitriona Morgan-O’Brien, Deputy Principals, the Teaching Staff including Special Needs Assistants, the Administration Staff and the Ancillary Staff of Salesian Secondary College for your endless support and friendship, it was always greatly appreciated. I wish you every blessing, health and happiness into the future and continued success and prosperity to Salesian Secondary College and its community. I will continue to have huge interest in the school and will support the community in anyway that I can. Pallaskenry has been a huge part of my life and I have really known no different.

My great wish for the school is to continue the lovely ethos of Don Bosco where every student knows they are cared for in a family friendly atmosphere. We are still very fortunate to have members of the Salesian Community on campus. Please continue to welcome them into our staffroom and keep them informed of all the great successes and activities as they have given their whole lives to working with young people.

God bless and best wishes,
