I’m not sure how many of you follow RTAI Site – following article requesting assistance might be of interest to those of you wanting to share memories. You might also want to have a look at History of our own branch (see ABOUT)
“To mark INTO’s 150th anniversary (1868-2018), a short film is being commissioned to capture the essence of INTO including some of the main events of our history.
It is intended to capture in this short film INTO’s commitment to better working lives and conditions for teachers, to equality, to high standards of education, to professionalism in teaching, and to supporting members in difficulty (whether financial or work related) among other features.
We know that a number of retired members have recollections of events, or have knowledge of people involved in INTO previously, which/who recollect examples to illustrate these and other values represented by INTO.
What does INTO stand for/mean to you? What are your earliest and most valued impressions or memories of INTO’s work and/or value?
Because of severe time pressures related to this project, we invite you to email us within the next week with any contribution you would like to make to this project. Please have a think about the issues above and email us – INTO150@into.ie – with any suggestions, ideas or stories.
INTO is due to have a discussion with a film company within the next two weeks and this entire project has to be completed within a short time so we would urge you to assist us to the best of your ability within the coming week.”
