The Ulster-Scots Agency invites teaching staff, to a short one-day conference entitled ‘Enhancing the Curriculum – Learning about Ulster-Scots culture in the Primary School’ that will be held in the ionic ‘Titanic Belfast’ on Friday 9th November from 9.30am – 3.00pm. Attendance at the conference is free. Key note speakers will include representatives from the Department of Education and members of the Northern Ireland Assembly and the programme will highlight some of the initiatives that have been introduced to primary schools to ensure that learning about the Ulster-Scots culture is both enjoyable and valid in the current school curriculum. There will also be short presentations from school principals and teachers already engaged in Ulster-Scots learning strategies who will explore the benefits to both the children and to the school. There will be opportunities to identify what free resources and support the Ulster-Scots Agency can provide to your school in relation to drama, music, dance, ICT and other areas of the curriculum where Ulster-Scots can add value to your learning strategies. The Agency will also launch its Flagship Programme during the conference that will further support schools who are keen to develop their own Ulster Scots learning strategies. Morning tea/coffee and lunch will be provided.
Further information on the conference can be obtained by contacting Jane Wallace or Gary Blair at the Ulster Scots Agency (028 90 231 113).
