St Ciaran’s Community School

Pinta facilitated St. Ciaran’s Community School in implementing a School Improvement Plan.

This involved:

  • Developing a comprehensive plan for the school for the next 3-5 years.
  • Assisting the school with structuring the implementation plan, resourcing and setting up project teams and monitoring/reviewing progress against set timelines.
  • Facilitating a one day meeting skills course.
  • Providing management team coaching to develop a self evaluating approach to management and advancement of the school organisation.

“In facilitating the development of a strategic plan for our school, Pinta made what was an enormous undertaking much more manageable and achievable. Pinta brought their knowledge and skills to the process of consulting with our stakeholders and made the task seem easy. We were guided through the process in a very professional yet relaxed way. Pinta kept us focused and emphasised the importance of being realistic in our goals. We are very happy with the plan, which will act as our roadmap for the next 3 years. Most importantly, we have learned the skills that will allow us to continue to develop our plan in the years to come.”
