High profile education delegation visits Derry to engage with city's Irish medium schools
7 Feb 2019
A high profile education delegation has visited Derry. The visit by the delegation, which included the Education Permanent Secretary and representatives from CCMS and Comhairle na Gaelscoilaíochta, was facilitated by Foyle Sinn Fein MLA Karen Mullan to engage with Irish medium schools in the city. Ms Mullan (pictured) said: "We visited Gaelscoil Éadain Mhóir, Gaelscoil Na Daróige and Bunscoil Cholmcille in what was a productive and very worthwhile round of meetings. "This important initiative provided the three schools with a useful opportunity to discuss with the Permanent Secretary the issues they are facing and at the same time it afforded them the opportunity to highlight the excellent quality of education they are providing. "It was a very positive round of engagements and I felt it was important to get the Permanent Secretary out to these schools to provide a clear context to Irish medium education in Derry." Ms Mullan concluded: "It was impressed upon the Permanent Secretary the need for capital investment to ensure the development and the successful growth of the Irish medium sector in Derry."
