Sharing the Present, Shaping the Future
Northern Ireland’s first ever Shared Education Week takes place from Monday 8th October to Friday 12th October 2018. This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone involved in Shared Education to take part in a week of events and celebrations. The objectives for the week are to:
- celebrate and share the success of the Shared Education programmes being carried out in schools with their pupils, staff, parents and local communities;
- raise awareness and promote a better understanding of the nature, purpose, extent, value and impact of Shared Education in Northern Ireland; and
- explore the future direction of Shared Education.
Shared Education Week is being organised by the Shared Education Learning Forum (SELF) in partnership with key organisations involved in delivering and promoting Shared Education, good relations and reconciliation in Northern Ireland. These include: Department of Education, Education Authority, Community Relations Council, Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA), C2K, Community Relations in Schools (CRIS), Queen’s University Belfast and Fermanagh Trust.
