Baroness May Blood visits GIPS

Pupils at Glengormley Integrated Primary School were glad to show off their new laptops when Baroness May Blood MBE visited the school’s IT suite.
The equipment was bought thanks to a donation from the Australian Ireland Fund, after the charity’s  Executive Director, Teresa Keating, toured the school last summer on a trip organised by the Integrated Education Fund.
Baroness Blood congratulated everyone at Glengormley IPS for its work in education children of all backgrounds and cultures together since it transformed to integrated status in 2003. After admiring the new computer equipment the visitor was treated to music from the children and lunch with the staff.
Glengormley IPS Principal Nigel Arnold says
“We were all delighted to welcome Baroness Blood to the school as we feel we have so much to celebrate in the work that we do here, both in school and in sharing with other schools.   When our visitor from Australia, Teresa Keating, saw our children learning and playing together earlier this year she wanted to support our growth as an integrated school and we are very grateful for the Australian Ireland Fund’s support for our new computer facility.”
