Yossi Shinover will be leaving his position as principal at Mesuat Neria, since he has been appointed as Supervisor for the Ministry of Education. Shinover, who is 42 years old, has been principal at Mesuat Neria for the past seven years and served as principal of the middle school at the Yeshiva Bnei Akiva Modiin. During his tenure as principal of Mesuat Neria, he pursued his vision of inclusion as one of the school's main objectives. In addition, over the years, Shinover has implemented unique programs designed to realize the abilities and skills of students in various fields. For example, the "Amirim" program has 60 students, two of the largest student choirs in the city, a petting zoo and classes such as dog training, carpentry and cooking, and more.
Ruth Siri, currently vice principal, will take over as principal at Mesuat Neria until the end of the year. The Ministry of Education will publish a tender for a permanent principal of the school. Siri has been working in the school for 13 years and has implemented a number of pedagogical programs including the development of a peer learning program among the school staff, and other fields. In the past year, Ruth has led the Ministry of Education's project steering committee, together with six other schools in Israel, on the development of pedagogical tools to maximize the abilities of outstanding students.
