Oakfield Primary School Receives Flagship Status

12 May 2017

The Ulster-Scots Flagship School programme is a cultural and educational programme, devised and managed by the Ulster-Scots Agency in partnership with primary schools in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The purpose of the programme is to support primary schools in the development of high quality educational and curricular opportunities for children and young people to learn more about Ulster-Scots heritage and culture.

Oakfield Primary School has demonstrated a continuous commitment to Ulster-Scots learning in school and has been awarded the Ulster-Scots Flagship School status and received the Ulster-Scots Flagship School award.

During the last four years P6 pupils have participated in a cultural trip to Scotland, and Ulster Scots workshops in Music, Dance, History, Art and Drama. Oakfield pupils are the first to have received an OCN Level 1 in playing the tin whistle through the Ulster Scots Agency.  

Mr Blair from the Ulster Scots Agency visited the school on Wednesday April 26 2017 to present this prestigious award.

Mr G. Mc Cluskey (principal) and Miss V. Logan (P6 teacher) were commended for their valued input into the Ulster Scots heritage programme.
