Brenda Kelly, Principal gave a presentation on the Strategic Plan and said:

“Holy Family Community School has undergone many changes since it opened in 1981.  We welcome this Strategic Plan which was developed in collaboration with all our partners in education.  It expresses our cohesive vision, charts a direction for the school and sets aspirational and achievable goals for future growth and improvement.  Holy Family Community School will use this plan to confidently face the exciting challenges and opportunities ahead, including providing for increasing student, staff and management populations, building a new school and embracing educational initiatives including the new Junior Cycle Programme and eLearning.  Our strategic plan continues our tradition of having the holistic development, academic success and happiness of our students at its heart.

Many people have contributed to the development of this plan.  It would be impossible to thank everyone individually.  However, it is appropriate to thank a number of individuals and groups.
