The impossible workload facing teaching principals in smaller primary schools was highlighted this week at the INTO conference in Galway.

Teaching principals are a feature of many smaller schools - especially in counties in the West of Ireland - but many have reported increased stress levels due to trying to balance their teaching work with administrative duties.

They're asking to be released from the classroom for one day per week to carry out their administrative work.

Mayo Senator Rose Conway-Walsh says the current situation cannot continue, and the Government needs to immediately address the workload placed on teaching principals.
