St Mary's Primary School Banbridge

St.Mary's extend a warm Banbridge welcome to our Erasmus + project partners

25th Mar 2018

On Monday 12 March 2018,  25 European teachers and 3 students were warmly welcomed by our staff and pupils to our wonderful new school.  This was our first host visit as part of our ongoing Erasmus+ project @museart. Our European partners travelled from Estonia, Spain, Croatia, Bulgaria, England, Sweden, Ireland and Italy to join us for a week of cultural, educational and professional development workshops. 

Day 1 - Our talented St.Mary's musicians played a selection of instruments for our guests and our choir performed "The Star of the County Down".  After a short tour of our new school, Grainne and Niall from the Amma Centre in Armagh delivered a workshop on digital storytelling and the use of a green screen to enhance our project activities. In the afternoon,  our European visitors were treated to a walking historical tour of Banbridge town,  which was guided by Jason Diamond from ABC Council.
