Fiona Collins is the Principal of Francis St. C.B.S. Dublin 8. Her interest in empowering young people began with the establishment of one of the first student councils in an Irish primary school. Under her leadership, the school was elected as an Ashoka Changemaker School—part of the first cohort of Changemaker Schools in Ireland.
Along with her dedicated team of teachers and parents, Fiona is committed to exploring ways to promote educational participation, social inclusion, responsive citizenship and addressing the inequalities faced by young people in marginalised communities.
Fiona is involved in the Volunteer Induction Programme with Solas Project and as part of her role as Director, is involved in the monitoring and evaluating of Solas Project programmes.
