    If it was closer to home, I would have loved to apply for it.

    Hi Glennda

    The current Director of IT is leaving.

    We feel that one of the weaknesses in our current structure is that he was expected to cover too wide a brief.

    Therefore, we have decided to create a "no.2" position in the area, so to speak, called Network Manager, who will focus entirely on keeping the systems running on a day-to-day basis.

    The post of Director of IT will now be widened to Director of IT & Communications as we are interested in expanding the use of IT in our marketing strategy - developing the website; running a database of prospective parents from our feeder schools and so on. This new role will also be given the task of working with teachers to develop the use of IT in the curriculum - the use of Moodles for example, exploring Khan Academy materials (see Youtube) and so on
