Shared Education Peace IV

 

CASE PEACE IV Project has given our students the opportunities to build and develop new friendships from different communities and has enabled them to open their minds to new possibilities which have enriched them whilst helping them to gain new skills to grow and progress within their personal and school lives.

Students were happy, excited and engaged in new activities and happy learning in new and existing environments. Teachers, Senior Management and Governors from both partnerships could share experiences professionally with each other and within the wider local community

Staff from partnerships have been able to develop new skills and continuously seek to challenge and engage students from both very different communities. Our students felt accepted, valued and motivated with their new partnership friends.
