Department of Education and Skills
367. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the processes of her Department regarding provision of school rulebooks to parents of children who were school students in the 1960s and 1970 specifically with regard to the 1946 rules and regulations for national schools; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [56046/21]
The ‘Rules for National Schools’ was published on 11 February 1965. With regard to the earlier publication of 1946 and arrangements for the provision of school rulebooks to parents of children at that time, the information sought by the Deputy is not readily available.
The rules outlined in such publications have largely been superseded by legislation and Department circulars in the intervening years.
