Northern Ireland - House Captains

The House Captains visited Northern Ireland for 2 days funded by the Fermanagh Trust. The Trust works hard to develop shared education programmes between Protestants and Catholics in schools in the county of Fermanagh. The House Captains flew to Belfast and then travelled by minibus to Enniskillen. Their first stop was Brookborough Controlled Primary School where they met all the children and staff. From there they visited St Mary's Primary School where they watched a play about racism performed by both Protestant and Catholic children working together. Our House Captains were then taken to The Clinton Centre in Enniskillen which was opened by Bill Clinton, the former USA president,  as a place of reconciliation and peace.


From there our House Captains were given a fabulous boat cruise on Loch Erne and taken to Devinish Island to look at the remains of a monastic community. The next day the children went to the world famous Marble Arch Caves. On arrival they were taken deep underground where they took a small boat ride through the caves to view the magnificent stalagtites and stalagmites.


After this they visited St John the Baptist School for lunch and enjoyed the opportunity to play out with their Irish friends!On their return to Belfast they paused to view the G8 Summit place. The House Captains had a fantastic time and learned such a great deal.
