Tuesday 17th April marked the final session between two classes that have been working together for two years! The classes, one from Bunscoil Bheann Mhadagain and the other from Edenbrooke Primary School, began working with each other in 2010 as a primary six class. Since then they have been involved in our Twinning programme as both primary sixes and sevens, participated in a Super Twinning and many have been to both our annual Spring Jam and Jingle Ball tournaments.
In our final session we discussed flags and symbols that exist in Northern Ireland. All pupils shared their own experiences and gave their opinions on what the flags and symbols represented to them! It was a great way to finish a twinning programme and both classes came away having learnt something new.
It has been a great journey with these classes, but it doesn’t end there as many of the students will stay with the PeacePlayers programme by participating in our after schools Cross Community League (CCL). This is where the children are put on integrated teams for a five-week period, play in a league setting and participate in community relations discussions. We are currently in week three of CCL Junior Girls, so stay tuned for more information!
