New Programme Teaching Irish and Ulster-Scots in Blackwater Integrated College
21/11/16 | Integrated Education
Blackwater Integrated College will begin facilitating a new six-week cultural programme with one of their year 9 classes during November. The objective of the programme, designed by the Ulster-Scots Agency and Foras na Gaeilge, is to provide students with an introduction to Irish language and Ulster-Scots culture, heritage and language. Students will look at the similarities of Irish and Ulster-Scots, in addition to looking into how the two languages differ before exploring their own individual identity looking at their heritage and genealogy.
