‘Talking Integration: Launch of West Belfast Poll on Integrated Education’ @ St Mary’s University College
Aug 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

You’re all invited to come along to the IEF’s event ‘Talking Integration: Launch of West Belfast Poll on Integrated Education’ on Thursday 8 August at 10am, part of the annual Féile an Phobail August festival. The event will take place at St Mary’s University College on the Falls Road in Belfast and we will be joined by Tara Mills, broadcaster and journalist, as Chair for the event.

‘Talking Integration: Launch of West Belfast Poll on Integrated Education’

Thursday 8 August 2024 at 10.00am-11.30am

St Mary’s University College, Belfast

The IEF regularly commissions area polls in locations across Northern Ireland as a way to gauge views on Integrated Education and related education issues. LucidTalk, a polling and market research company, will be carrying out a poll in West Belfast during July and the results will be presented at this event. To encourage reflection and discussion, we have also invited some key stakeholders to join a panel discussion on the findings. Panellists are not yet finalised but include Sinn Fein’s educational spokesperson Pat Sheehan, as well as Mr William Doherty, principal of Cranmore Integrated Primary School. The panel will be asked to provide a brief response and reflection on the micro-poll results followed by Q&A with opportunities for the audience to ask questions.

We hope you can join us!

If you have any questions about the event or the West Belfast poll, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing jessica@ief.org.uk.

Entries will be judged separately on a primary school and secondary school basis.
