As well as participating in the seminar, students enjoyed a bus tour of Belfast city, viewing Belfast City Hall, Stormont and the Shankill Road. Students were treated to dinner in Belfast City Hall with Belfast Lord Mayor, Nuala McAllister. Conscious of the education links between North and South, students visited a local Primary School; where SVSS students met and engaged with students and staff from St. Joseph’s Primary School, Belfast. SVSS students joined the Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Tony Fitzgerald on this historic visit.
SVSS students and staff greatly appreciate the opportunity afforded by the Lord Mayor of Cork and counterpart Lord Mayor of Belfast – without whom, this visit would not have been possible. Thanks also to SVSS Home School Liaison Teacher, Ms. M. Fitzgerald, who accompanied the students.
