24th January 2014 - Irish Primary Principals Network (IPPN) Director Seán Cottrell calls on Minister to take action on the “unreasonable expectations” threatening pupils’ future

In a hard hitting message delivered directly to Education Minister Ruairi Quinn, who’s attending this year’s IPPN conference at the City West Hotel, Saggart, Co. Dublin on 23 and 24 January, IPPN Director Seán Cottrell said primary school principals are in imminent danger of neither having the time nor the resources to deliver the service their pupils deserve because of the increasing and often conflicting demands being made on their time and workload.

17th January 2014 - Draft IPPN Statement on Book Rental

IPPN recognises the value to schools of having a book rental scheme in place, particularly in areas of acute disadvantage.

IPPN is encouraged that Minister Quinn recognises that schools require government support to set up book rental schemes due to the prohibitive start-up costs.

However, IPPN is disappointed that Minister Quinn did not see fit to treat all schools equally when reaching a decision on the allocation of funding. This is an affront to proactive schools that have already established Book Rental Schemes from the proceeds of fundraising or the diversion of capitation funding.

IPPN is making representations on behalf of these schools to the Minister and will keep you informed of developments
