March 2017 is Integrated Education Month and a group of students from North Coast Integrated College went to Stormont with Mr. Mullan for the official launch on Friday, March 3.

The theme of Integrated Education Month this year will be ‘Remembering: the Big Small Stories’. This is about valuing and capturing all the stories, big and small, of those who have been and are involved in Integrated Education, past and present.

Those who attended the event took part in the ‘the long walk’ from Ardnavalley Scout Adventure Centre, to the front gates of Stormont Estate. This is a walk of approximately six miles. Ardnavalley is the original site of Lagan College, Northern Ireland’s first integrated school. When the walk ended there was music and a real celebratory atmosphere.
