Meeting members of staff…

 

Ms D Corkery.

This term we are delighted to welcome Ms D Corkery to St Augustine’s Priory, who joins us as a teacher of R.E.  Ms Corkery says:

‘I’m delighted to be teaching such fantastic pupils. The welcome that I have received since I set foot inside St Augustine’s Priory has been amazing. The warm and collegial nature of the school community is instantly tangible and inspiring.

I studied Theology at St Patrick’s College Maynooth (MTh) and completed my teacher training at the University of Strathclyde (PGDE). I lectured in Theology at a teacher training college in Ireland and have taught in schools in Glasgow and Bath.

R.E. is such a fascinating subject area and I have a particular interest in New Testament studies and the relationship between religion and culture. I have also contributed articles and chapters to academic journals and books on these areas of interest.

Outside school, I love travelling and watching rugby, particularly the Munster and Ireland rugby teams!’

We wish Ms Corkery a happy new year and know that she will enjoy her time with us.
