And we are back…

Congratulations and best wishes to our 106 first year students who joined our school community in the most unusual circumstances this morning. A lot to learn for staff and students alike but we are looking forward to making this year as good and productive as we possibly can.

Employment Opportunities

School Supervisors (Temporary)

Hazelwood College invites applications for inclusion on a Panel of Temporary Supervisors to supervise pupils on the school premises. 

In order to facilitate maximum social distancing, it is envisaged that schools will require increased supervision throughout the day in the following areas:

  • increased supervision of students before and after school, at break times and at lunchtimes to encourage good behaviour and social distancing;
  • supervising hand hygiene measures needed to be undertaken by students to prevent the spread of COVID-19;
  • at more entry and exit points than are currently used in order to minimise contact;
  • supervision at lockers and bathroom areas.

The above is not an exhaustive list and additional supervision may be required in other areas depending on the needs of the school.

Appointment will be subject to satisfactory Garda Vetting disclosure by the National Vetting Bureau of An Garda Síochána.

If you are interested in applying for the above postion(s) please contact Mr Burke as soon as possible
