IVEA today welcomed Education Minister, Ruairí Quinn's announcement that, as of this September, all children transferring from primary to post primary schools will have their end of year report cards sent to their new school.

As patrons of the multi-belief Community National Schools our member VECs broadly welcome Minister Quinn's announcement today that he will issue a White Paper on Pluralism and Patronage in Primary Schools in early 2013.

IVEA extends its best wishes to all commencing either the Leaving Certificate or Junior Certificate examinations this week.
'While the Leaving Certificate, in particular, is an important event in the life of a young person, it is important to keep the event in perspective' says IVEA Education Research Officer, Pat O'Mahony'.
