Shared Education event @ Lagan College

On Thursday 19th January tutor group 9G travelled, along with pupils from ‘Our Lady and St. Patrick’s College’, to Lagan College for their second YMCA workshop in conjunction with the Shared Education Project in which each school is involved. 

All pupils present on the day continued to study the theme of resilience through group work and a craft project centred around the eight building blocks of resilience. In the afternoon, the pupils were then divided into groups to prepare for the Presentation Evening that their parents will be invited to attend in June, where some of them will write poetry, make mini-movies etc.

The next ‘Shared Education’ event is scheduled to take place in February, featuring ‘Action Mental Health’, while the pupils are also looking forward to a bus tour of Belfast and Stormont in March. 

Many thanks to Mrs Lander who continues to co-ordinate GGS’s participation in the Shared Education Programme, as well as Mr McDowell who accompanied her on the day.

We look forward to reading about many more Shared Education events over the remainder of the year.
