Shared Education

What is Shared Education? 

  • Shared Education involves the sustained provision of opportunities for children and young people from different communities and backgrounds to learn together both in and out of school.’
    DENI 2016
  • It enables children from different sectors to join together for curriculum based collaboration- for example to study a specific subject through a shared class, or to undertake a project
  • It aims to promote reconciliation through building relationships and sharing a variety of learning experiences

 

The PEACE IV Programme

  • The EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation is a unique Structural Funds programme aimed at reinforcing progress towards a peaceful and stable society in Northern Ireland and the Border counties of Ireland
  • The PEACE IV Programme will provide support to projects that contribute towards the promotion of greater levels of peace and reconciliation. The Programme will also place a strong emphasis on promoting cross-community relationships and understanding in order to create a more cohesive society
  • The core objectives of PEACE IV will be to support actions that will develop and deepen reconciliation between divided communities, increase tolerance and respect, promote increased community cohesion and contact, enhance cross-border cooperation and address the legacy of the past

 

Our Partnership

Through the PEACE IV Programme, Fairview Primary School have found a partner school, St. Oliver Plunkett Primary School in Belfast.

Our Primary 4 year group will enjoy 6 full days of learning alongside children from our partner school. Activities will be based on the theme of ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine,’ and will comprise of activities ranging from character studies to making potions and slime!

The dates for the project are as follows:

  • Icebreaker day at Breckenhill - 8th March
  • 16th March
  • 23rd March
  • 27th April
  • 18th May
  • 25th May - Fun Day

 

Throughout the project the children will have the opportunity to both travel to our partner school and remain at Fairview, undertaking activities alongside their new friends.

They will complete various activities across the curriculum including Numeracy, Literacy, WAU, The Arts and PDMU/CRED. 

 They will also undertake activities that promote reconciliation - recognising and respecting different groups and backgrounds within our local and wider communities.
