Pupils and staff at Killyleagh Integrated Primary School welcomed Baroness May Blood, Integrated Education Fund Campaign Chair and Tina Merron, CEO of the Fund, when they visited to view the school’s new “Better Together” mural. This outdoor artwork was funded by the IEF Trust Programme as part of the school’s ‘Why we are “Better Together”’ project. The project was created to promote integrated education through pupil engagement in ICT and Art activities and also involved a poetry competition.
The Trust Programme is currently in its fourth year. This year’s programme focused on ‘Integration in Practice’ and provided grants to integrated schools to support their work to further embed the integrated ethos within all aspects of school life. This round of the programme was supported by the Pears Foundation and the Turnaround Foundation. The IEF is indebted to both foundations for their generosity and practical endorsement of our work.
Killyleagh PS became an integrated primary school in September 2016 after a parental ballot showed overwhelming support for transformation to integrated status. A nursery unit offering pre-school provision also opened in Killyleagh IPS in September 2017.
