Highly Commended | Good Relations Youth Award (Under 25)
St Johns and Killowen primary schools in Coleraine are shared education partners and work together regularly on good relations and community cohesion projects.
Their principles Helen McDonnell and Arlene Moon work tirelessly to promote their shared ethos and have developed a very successful and fruitful relationship between the schools in their work to create and celebrate mutual understanding and community cohesion.
It is clear to see the commitment of the pupils and the teachers to advance Good Relations in the area and they recognise their part in this, participating fully and enthusiastically in bringing their learning out into the wider community.
The schools relationship is an excellent example of active and ongoing Good Relations work. Their pledge to each other;
“to understand and respect differences, to offer smiles, support and respect others, build bridges between our schools and to listen and talk through our difficulties.”
