A headteacher with wide experience in international schools recently started working as CEO and president of the historic Cistercian College in Roscrea, Ireland.
He has come to the Catholic school from the role of principal at the International School of Penang, Malaysia, and has also been a principal in New Zealand.
Clark told ISMP: “I am delighted to take on this newly established role as president of Cistercian College, leading the college towards its next stage of strategic development building on the fantastic work that has been undertaken recently with the investment in our facilities and campus.
“We are a boys boarding school which is a home away from home and a place to grow for our boys. We take great pride in providing a premium and personalised educational pathway for our boys helping them to reach their fullest potential.
“We are a small college which punches well above its weight in all facets of school life whether it be academics, sporting, cultural or service ventures.”
According to Cistercian College’s website, Gavin Clark grew up in the North East of Scotland and holds a diploma in education from the University of Aberdeen, a master of educational leadership from the University of Waikato and an MA in management from Aberdeen.
Gavin, his wife Cherie and their two boys are looking forward to making Ireland their new home and even trying their hands at hurling, it adds.
