Shared Education in Lurgan schools – a local partnership with a global vision

Presentation: Delivered by Alistair Hamill (Lurgan College), Hannah Murtagh (St Ronan’s College) & Michael Walters (PSNI).

Thursday 23 September at 7.30

How did three pupils from different schools in Lurgan end up on a global stage in San Diego, presenting to a live audience of 19,000 people about their story of peace and reconciliation in the town?

The story behind this is one of vision, partnership, openness and an intentionality to make the most of serendipitous happenings. In this webinar, you’ll hear from some of the people involved in this exciting work. They will tell something of the story that led to San Diego and will reflect on some of the deeper principles that they have learned along the way on how to make reconciliation work for today’s young people. They’ll also give you an insight into what’s next for the pupils involved in shared education and what good relations means in its fullest and widest sense as we face the challenge of the climate crisis in the years and decades ahead.
