Sharing education in Israel and Northern Ireland
From November 7-11 Tony Gallagher and Gavin Duffy visited Israel to work on shared education. Since their first visit to two schools four years ago, many Jewish and Arab schools are now engaged in shared education. The main purpose of their visit was to participate in the launch of an EU funded project, at which Tony gave the key-note address. They also visited schools and colleges, and met with advisers of the President of Israel to discuss his initiative on social cohesion. A busy week was rounded off with meetings with the Irish Embassy and a member of the Knesset.
