1 Mins read

Ballycastle Sinn Féin Councillor, Cara McShane, has welcomed the Education Minister’s announcement today to progress on the shared campus project for Cross and Passion College and Ballycastle High School.

Cllr Cara McShane commented:

“Earlier this month the Assembly gave the green light to Shared Education as the Shared Education Bill passed its Final Stage. Following on from this and as a result of additional funds secured under the Fresh Start agreement, John O’Dowd, the Education Minister, has today given the go ahead to begin building the shared education project in Ballycastle.

“A huge amount of work has gone into the planning stages and the business case, particularly by the two school principles and senior management.

“The project is part of The Shared Education Campuses Programme which provides schools with the opportunity to build on existing sharing arrangements and to access funding to help improve or provide shared facilities.

“The proposal in Ballycastle consists of two new core school buildings for the respective schools and two shared campuses.

“The two post primary schools in Ballycastle have been held up as a model example of education delivery for years in the North. Not only offering a wider range of subjects and choices for pupils to avail of across the two sites, but still retaining their own school ethos and enriching the learning experience for pupils from all backgrounds.”
