SHARED EDUCATION

The Shared Education programme involves Lisnasharaagh, Cregagh and St. Bernards Primary Schools.

Pupils from each school are split into various mixed groups and work across the three schools to complete a range of tasks. Each group are given the opportunity to work in a different school with a different teacher each term.

So far we have integrated the following numbers of pupils:

P4. 123 pupils

P6. 121 pupils

P7. 121 pupils

    This year there are 4 year groups with more than 500 pupils taking part in the project.

      This year

      Again, pupils from each school will be split into various mixed groups and focus on using the Garage Band App. This app provides pupils a set of tools to compose their own music.
