Leadership at Clonard College
Clonard College is a Catholic secondary school for girls in the Brigidine tradition where we strive for each
student to achieve their best in a culture that values learning, hope and purpose.

Leadership at Clonard College is both inspired by and animates the Kildare Ministries values of:

       Justice
       Compassion
       Courage
       Hope
       Hospitality
       Wonder

Leadership at Clonard College has a particular orientation of ministry to others based on the person of
Jesus Christ. Servant leadership has a particular focus on empowering others to exercise leadership in
their own right. It seeks to build agreement about shared vision and values which become a reference
point for all who work in the name of our school. As a leader at Clonard College, it is expected that you
have a particular commitment to the development of collaborative working relationships as an intentional
means of sharing wisdom and building collective efficacy.

As leaders there is a moral imperative to ensure our leadership influences through the spheres of faith,
community, learning and teaching and wellbeing, to bring to life the strategic intentions of the College,
working collaboratively to ensure improvements in student learning, wellbeing and engagement and
development of our College graduate outcomes.

Leaders have a commitment to be faith witnesses, lead and influence continuous improvement, mentor
and develop aspiring leaders, build the capacity of staff in all areas of College life and engage in ongoing
personal and professional learning, especially in the field of leadership. We expect leaders to hold the
strategic vision of the College.

At Clonard we recognise that leadership is a developmental journey and as such, our structure reflects
opportunities to engage with leadership at varying levels and stages.
