Kilross and Cavan School Twinning Trip

23 May 2019

The Ulster-Scots Agency recently organised a School Twinning Trip between Kilross Primary School and Cavan National School that took place on Tuesday 21 May 2019.

Pupils and teachers from both schools travelled to the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh where they were able to learn more about those who emigrated from Ulster to America.

As part of the Agency’s Twinning Programme, pupils from Kilross P.S. and Cavan N.S. become pen-pals, writing to one another throughout the year.

The trip was the first time that this group of pupils had the opportunity to meet with one another in person and on the day, they each delivered fantastic presentations describing their school and the area in which they come from.

To end the day, certificates were awarded to the pupils following their participation in the programme.
