TEACHER David McMilligan represented Castleroe Primary School this week to receive an award for improving mutual understanding, reconciliation and community relations within and beyond schools.

The inaugural CREDIT Awards event took place at Stranmillis University College and was organised jointly with St Mary’s University College as part of the Classrooms Re-imagined: Education in Diversity and Inclusion for Teachers (CREDIT) Project with support from the International Fund for Ireland.

International Fund for Ireland Chairman Dr Adrian Johnston said: “Congratulations to all the CREDIT participants and winners today on their impressive achievements.

“Through CREDIT teachers and schools have become more empowered and confident in overcoming issues of division, diversity, inclusion and reconciliation that sadly classrooms and school environments still experience.

Since launching last year, the CREDIT Project has worked with more 160 teachers providing training and development that focuses on diversity, inclusion and community cohesion issues in school environments.
