I was appointed Assistant Vice Principal in 2008.  As part of this role I am responsible for the Curriculum, including Options. I am the Newtownabbey Learning Community Co-ordinator and like all staff, am responsible for pastoral care and discipline.
Tell us one thing about you that most people wouldn’t know!
For my birthday a few years ago my family took me out in a sea plane.  We flew over the island of Malta, which was amazing. Landing on water was a bit weird but I would recommend it to anyone.
