The Connecting Communities Project has been developed by the Speedwell Trust, through the South West Peace III Cluster of Magherafelt, Cookstown and Dungannon Councils. This project is funded through the EU’s Peace III programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
This project involves 15 primary schools across the cluster, working on a cross community basis, on activities linked to the curriculum. Participating teachers will receive training to help them further the aims of the project and ensure the future engagement of schools with the concept of connecting communities.
As part of the project a thematic unit entitled connecting communities has been developed by the Speedwell Trust in conjunction with Anne McErlane. This unit will be made available to all schools in Northern Ireland and will continue to support teachers as they deliver the aims of the project.
