LifePage Career Talk on School Headship
By Maya Norula
[Principal in Hopetown Girls’ School]
What is School Headship?
Maya Norula: “The principal of a school is like the centre of a wheel. The principal keeps everything in line and in good working order. The principal is in charge of keeping the school working so that teachers, students, and support staff can function and complete their respective jobs. A principal needs to be a strong leader to staff, a fair hiring agent for new teachers and aides, an advocate to students, and a disciplinarian when necessary. A principal also serves as an intermediate between the county board of education and the school system in which they are employed.”
