Imagine a world without IPPN. No networking, no PIMS diary, no Conference, no Leadership+ magazine, no or, no mentoring or advice at the end of a telephone line. Limited collegiality!  That’s exactly what life was like 12 years ago when I was first appointed as Principal. Before IPPN our profession was a lonely one, we were voiceless, isolated and vulnerable. Now, our voice no longer cries in the wilderness. We are encouraged, enriched, empowered. Now we can and we do make a difference - thank you IPPN. I am proud to be associated with all involved in it. Words simply cannot express my gratitude to an organisation that has changed the face and dynamic of Irish education in a remarkably short period of time!
