Opportunities and Challenges for Schools and Communities along the Border

Over the past year, a research team at Ulster University’s School of Education have completed a project funded through the International Fund for Ireland’s Communities in Partnership Programme (supported by the Integrated Education Fund and Educate Together).

Throughout this process, the UU team have engaged with a wide range of stakeholders from different border communities including local residents and political, statutory and community representatives. We hope you can join us to hear more about the research and its findings on the opportunities and challenges facing primary schools and communities on either side of the border.

Please note that this is a hybrid event and you can choose to attend in-person or online (a meeting link will be circulated to those who’ve registered closer to the time).

A light lunch and refreshments will be provided for those attending in person.
