SEP brings out creative side in students!

Pictured above are students from St Paul’s Bessbrook and Newtownhamilton High School showing off their patches that they did as part of the Shared Education Programme (SEP). 

Year 8 pupils from both St Paul’s and Newtownhamilton High School met recently to discuss the work they have done to date on their joint patchwork quilt project.

The children spoke freely about their patches and everyone gained a real insight into the similarities of each others cultures.

Both schools shared in swapping patches of each others work, and both sets of pupils realised that it can be difficult to give up things that are precious to us, but in order to get two quilts, students from both schools needed to sacrifice their patch so they could be combined together to become a quilt.

The students from both schools will meet up again during the first week in December to see the final quilt that has been produced from their patches.
