A Legacy For Future Generations

Recently, Crumlin Integrated College staff, pupils and representatives from CSIE, attended the launch and exhibition celebrating 35 years of integrated education held at the Ulster Museum.

We were also pleased to have been accompanied on the Saturday by Mr Danny Kinnahan who is a great supporter of the College and assisted us on our journey and turn-around of the school. He was delighted to see CIC take its place amongst the other 65 schools in N Ireland and was pleased to hear that the school continues to go from strength to strength.

"The Big Small Stories Exhibition" took place over the weekend and featured performances, displays and stories from the 65 integrated schools across Northern Ireland. Through oral history interviews and a collection of images and heritage material, the project aims to bring together teachers, pupils and the wider school community to uncover the history of integrated education.

The event was hosted by the Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE), the exhibition was given support and funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Speaking at the exhibition launch, Roisin Marshall of NICIE said the archive will serve as a legacy for future generations.

Crumlin Integrated College was delighted and proud to be part of the exhibition and celebrate its success with the wider integrated schools’ community
