Published: 13 Sep 2012 14:300 comments

It was all change at the start of the new school term for Fermanagh woman Ms Jacqueline Bartley (Greaves), who took up an exciting new appointment as Principal of St. Pius X College in Magherafelt.

Her first Principalship, Jacqueline, originally from Enniskillen, was previously on the teaching staff for the past 18 years of St. Cecilia's College in Derry, where she was a teacher of business and ICT to A level. For the past five years, she was the school's Assistant Principal.

She is very pleased to take up her new post and regards it as a really exciting challenge. Describing St. Pius X College as a really good school, she mentions that there are 950 boys and girls in attendance; a teaching staff of 63 and a support staff of 40. The Vice Principals are Mrs. Edwina Toner and Mr. John Mulholland.

Settling in well to her new position, she says there is a great team of teachers, great support staff and a great supportive board of governors. There has been a warm welcome in the community and she feels welcomed by so many people, including those who have been calling in to wish her good luck for the future.

The school works closely with Rainey Endowed, St. Mary's Grammar School, the High School, and Sperrin Integrated as part of Magherafelt Learning Partnership and she has already been involved with that.

A former pupil of Mount Lourdes Grammar School and a graduate of St. Mary's University College, Belfast, Jacqueline achieved an MSc from the University of Ulster and she also attained her PQH - Professional Qualification for Headship. Living in Eglinton, she is married to Paul Greaves and they have two children, Lucy, 10, and Adam, seven.

Outside school, she likes walking and catching up with friends. A daughter of Mrs. Eithne Bartley and the late Jim, Jacqueline loves to get home to Fermanagh, where she enjoys boating on the lake and engaging in watersports including water-skiing.
