Citizenship and Shared Education

As part of our Shared Education programme with Friends' School Lisburn, 10E visited Stormont today as part of their Citizenship module.  As well as taking part in a debate in the main chamber about abolishing school uniform, the students were very lucky to have MLA Robbie Butler call in for a Q&A session.  Following lunch, the students created their own political parties and presented their manifestos - perhaps the 'Folks on the Hill' could get a little inspiration.

Niamh Lynch 8B, went for an audition last month to Glasgow for the Scottish Ballet mid associate Program. This program involves professional training in classical ballet, conditioning, pointe work and contemporary dance.

We are delighted with her achievement!
