Welcome to Dundonald High School
My name is Ken Perry and I am delighted to say that in April 2013, I was appointed as Principal of Dundonald High School. As a past pupil of the school, I feel that it is a great honour to be able to act as a driving force to help move Dundonald High School forward.
I have been a teacher here for 14 years and I can't stress to you enough my love for the Dundonald Community. Our motto is 'A caring school at the heart of the community.' We have always taken this motto seriously and it has become even more relevant at this current and crucial time for the school and the community.
Our pupils are fantastic and make coming into school an amazing experience. To the pupils reading this, past and present, you make me very proud.
My aim, and that of all the staff here, is to ensure that the educational experience of everyone involved with DHS is a positive one, and to firmly re-establish Dundonald High School as a community school. Our mission is that all pupils leave having achieved their full potential and are ready for life's challenges, equipped with the skills needed for the world of work.
Apart from striving towards academic excellence for all, I have listened carefully to feedback from the community about how Dundonald High School can serve you. As a result of that 2013-14 will see a huge focus on sport in the school. I am a Principal who listens and I take everyone's ideas and opinions on board.
I want to hear your views because, only by working together can we make this wonderful school truly outstanding!
