It takes a Community to Educate a Child

Bushmills Education Project - it takes a community to education a child

August 2013

Following a series of conversation workshops with parents, children, young people and professionals and a concluding Education Matters conference on 21 June, the Bushmills Residents Environmental Forum (BREF) and CYPSP Bushmills Locality Planning Group (LPG) have published the findings of the Education Matters project in a research report, ‘It takes a community to educate child’.

A community meeting is being held on 6 September between local residents, BREF and the CYPSP Bushmills Locality Planning Group to develop a community plan. The community plan for Bushmills will be informed by the research that has taken place over the last year.
The report is now available online – click here
