The Integrated Education Alumni Association gathered in Belfast for a barbecue party to mark the end of a successful academic year. A group of around thirty alumni along with IEF staff and supporters met old and new friends at the Filthy Quarter to network and relax. Event organiser, Hilary Copeland, greeted past pupils of New-bridge Integrated College, Slemish IC, Shimna IC, Hazelwood IC and Lagan College.
The Association supports the fundraising and advocacy work of the IEF and also serves to bring former pupils at integrated schools together socially, with groups now founded in London, Belfast and Liverpool. The group was officially launched last September by actor and integrated education supporter James Nesbitt at a reception in London.
The network is continually expanding and any past pupils interested in joining the Alumni Association can contact Ronan McCay at the IEF: firstname.lastname@example.org
