March 2017 is Integrated Education Month and The theme will be ‘Remembering: the Big Small Stories’. This is about valuing and capturing all the stories, big and small, of those who have been and are involved in Integrated Education, past and present.
The Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education will be officially launching Integrated Education Month on Friday 03 March with ‘the long walk’ from Ardnavalley Scout Adventure Centre, to the front gates of Stormont Estate. This is a walk of approximately six miles. Ardnavalley is the original site of Lagan College, Northern Ireland’s first integrated school, formed by a group of Protestant and Catholic parents with 28 pupils in a scout hall.
The first phase of the event will leave Ardnavalley at around 8:45am and will walk along the public footpaths at the side of the Knock Dual carriageway (A55) to the Upper Newtownards Road and the front gates of Stormont Estate by 11am.
The second phase of the event is the 1 mile walk up to Stormont Buildings at 11:15am, and there is a short end of event programme to ensure Integrated Education Month is launched with music and dance and a real air of celebration which will begin at 11:50am and end by 12:20pm.
If you would like to participate in either or both of these walks contact:
