Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O'Sullivan announced this week that Rule 68 will be repealed in January.

For the last  50 years the official rule governing our national schools -Rule 68- stated in part, that “of all parts of a school curriculum, Religious Instruction is by far the most important, as its subject matter, God’s honour and service, includes the proper use of all man’s faculties, and affords the most powerful inducements to their proper use.

Minister Jan O'Sullivan said that Rule 68 will be repealed in January, along with any other rules that don't reflect the diversity of our nation.
