Community Relations in Schools | NICVA

Since Autumn 2019 and funded by ANBC, CRIS has been working with schools in the Newtownabbey area to develop a supportive locality-based network, focused on strengthening relationships and on positive reconciliation and education outcomes. Currently, this involves work with children and young people, school staff teams and other local partners, and will hopefully go on to involve governors, parents/families and others. The welcome to involvement is open to all schools in the Newtownabbey area.

This year in St James's we have benefitted from involvement in a range of CRIS projects including:

NEST Newtownabbey Empowering Schools Together-The Principal's Cluster has been very beneficial.

Celebrating Diversity Programme- a Year 3 programme with Whitehouse Primary School.

Early Years Shared Learning Network- Solihul and Nurture training 

A special thank you to Gerard Hughes for his enthusiasm and encouragement.
