An Post today launched a postage stamp to mark 150 years (1868-2018) of the INTO. Representatives of the INTO, including President John Boyle, were at the GPO in Dublin for the launch.
The €1 stamp’s design references the INTO’s anniversary in a piece of cursive handwriting within traditional guide lines.
INTO President John Boyle said that the issuing of the stamp marked a welcome recognition by the State of INTO’s work for teachers and for education over 150 years. He said that the featuring of handwriting in the design was a reminder of the commitment of INTO's first
President, Vere Foster, to clarity of expression.
Photographed at the launch were John Boyle with 4th class children from St James’s Primary School (Basin Lane, Dublin), Delia Danca and Coby Berryman.
