08/10/18 - Year 8 Shared Education 
 
Year 8 pupils enjoyed an adventurous day at Meigh Community Centre and Slieve Gullion Forest Park. The day started with Ice breaker activities when pupils had an opportunity to mix with pupils from our partner schools: Newry High School, St Paul’s High School and St Joseph’s High School. We then travelled on to Slieve Gullion where pupils worked in small groups to complete the selfie challenge.  
 
Congratulations to group 11 on winning this challenge. All our pupils had the opportunity to get to know the names of a few pupils in our partner schools through our small group activities and as our program progresses throughout the year, pupils will have a chance to meet up again and continue to build friendships.
