Shared Education

At St Colmans we are delighted to be involved in the shared education programme. We have been linked with two local schools, Seymour Hill P.S and Dunmurry P.S and have been working closely together for a number of years. Through shared education the children develop new skills and friendships in a shared learning environment. 

Shared Education (September 2022 - June 2023)
Our P4-P7 teachers in all three schools enjoyed meeting up in October 2022 and they have planned events for this academic year.  In the second term children will have the opportunity to host their friends from Dunmurry and Seymour Hill and also to visit their schools for shared education activities.  In the third term we look forward to coming together for a Shared Sports Day.

Sports day 2017! This year we had a joint sports day for all our P4-P7 children at Mary Peters track. It was a fantastic day, well done to everyone who took part.


P.6 were looking at healthy living. They discussed a range of lifestyle choices and how they can impact on your health. The children the created iMovies to raise awareness of the impact of alcohol and smoking on daily life.

The Dogs Trust

Mr. Crouch's & Mr. McCambridge's classes met up with our friends from Seymour Hill to find out about the work of the Dogs Trust. It was a fun morning meeting 'Meg' and we were surprised by how much we already knew about taking care of dogs.

Shared Education choir record their CD!
In May the Shared Education choir went to the Island Centre in Lisburn to record their two songs for our CD. We hope to have the CD ready by the end of the school year and also perform them for all our parents. 

Caitlin and Daisy visited the recording studio to add some additional vocals to our songs.
