The Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE) was delighted to take Carl “The Jackal” Frampton, World Champion Boxer and NICIE patron on a whistle stop tour of integrated schools this week.
Carl made dreams come true for hundreds of children when he visited Cranmore Integrated Primary School in South Belfast, Cliftonville Integrated Primary School and Hazelwood Integrated College, both in his native North Belfast, before finishing the day in one of the newest integrated schools, Mallusk Integrated Primary School.
