Launch of Coleraine-area micro-poll results – parents support school integration


A recent micro-poll of parents in the Coleraine area has shown that the vast majority would like a school for their children which is openly welcoming to pupils from all sections of the community and of all faiths. In addition, 81.25% of the parents questioned indicated that they would be supportive of their local school becoming integrated.

Local residents are now invited to the launch of the full report, to ask questions and discuss the research as well as explore possible future integrated primary school provision in the Coleraine area. The event, hosted by the Integrated Education Fund and Lucid Talk, will be held on Wed 6 November at 12.30 in the Lodge Hotel, Coleraine (Lodge Road Roundabout, BT52 1NF). Lunch will be provided.
