It was with great pride that we tuned in online yesterday to watch our colleague Damian White address the Irish Primary Principals Network annual conference. 

In what was his last address to IPPN conference as president Damian praised the effort of schools over the last year and called on minister for education Norma Foley to ensure that supports given to school leaders are retained going forward. He also highlighted the importance of equality of access for every child and also highlighted the  need for vaccination of every special school teacher.
It was a wonderful speech which has been well received. Indeed, while we are sure that delegates missed actually getting together in person, nevertheless IPPN Conference 21 has been deemed a massive success. Congratulations to Damian and the rest of the IPPN team on this success. Finally Damian also mentioned that he looks forward to returning  to Killeigh next year. We look forward to welcoming him back.
