Principal's Address 2021/2022
May I extend a warm welcome to all our new students and staff for this academic year 2022/23. Portumna Community School has a proud tradition of academic excellence in several educational programmes, while also supporting student interests across a range of extracurricular activities. The staff and I look forward to supporting each students contribution to this proud tradition in the year ahead.
As part of a wider local community, Portumna Community School students are encouraged to develop themselves not only as responsible individuals but also as members of an inclusive school community; embracing citizenship and taking their place among a vibrant and often challenging society.
As members of a collaborative school community including students, parents, BOM and Trustees; the staff of Portumna Community School will continue to promote excellence in teaching and learning, while promoting 21st century skills by both challenging and encouraging students.
We encourage each student in our school community to achieve their personal best while contributing to the school ethos and characteristic spirit through mutual respect, integrity, positive relationships, collaboration and authentic communication with each other.
Finally, I want to wish all our students and staff well for the year ahead in achieving their personal goals. I look forward to working with you in achieving those goals in the safe and caring environment that is Portumna Community School.
Mr. Shane McClearn
Portumna Community School.
