Letter from the Chair of the Board of Management

Letter from the Chair of the Board of Management

14th February 2019

Dear Belvedere Community,

Ms. Lesley Byrne, Deputy Principal, has been offered and has accepted the post of Principal in another Secondary School. Whilst obviously delighted for Lesley, we are naturally saddened to see her leave.

Lesley joined us on staff in September 2010 as a Mathematics teacher having previously taught in the UK for a number of years. Lesley became Year Head in 2014 before being appointed Deputy Principal in 2017. In each of her roles she made an enormous contribution to the College, and had a hugely positive impact on the boys and young men entrusted to us.

Lesley has given enormously to the College both in the classroom and within the Drama Department. She has worked tirelessly in the area of student supports and in particular the Social Diversity Programme. She has been a valued and respected member of the Leadership team and she will be missed by staff, students, parents and alumni, all of whom benefitted from her contribution and her commitment to the education of our students, past and present.

We wish her well in her new role.

Yours sincerely,
Brian Owens
Chair, Board of Management
