Its the first time in a quarter of a century the syllabus will undergo a significant change.
Foreign languages will be introduced at primary level, as well as science and technology subjects.
There will be a greater focus on well-being, and a reduced focus on religion,
Guidance Councillor and Education Columnist with the Irish Times Brian Mooney is welcoming the changes.
