Sec­tar­i­an­ism fo­cus

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

Pupils at t wo Cam­bus­lang schools came to­gether ear­lier this month to stamp out sec­tar­i­an­ism.

Pri­mary sev­ens from Cairns and St Cadoc’s Pri­mary Schools have been work­ing to­gether over the past three months on the Old Firm Al­liance Project.

On May 15, they pre­sented a fan­tas­tic show­case to their par­ents and in­vited guests about their learn­ing and zero tol­er­ance to­wards sec­tar­i­an­ism.

Par­ents were in­vited to look at their work from the novel Di­vided City by Theresa Breslin and some chil­dren acted out two drama scenes linked to the book.

This project has been a great suc­cess with the chil­dren even writ­ing and pro­duc­ing their own song called Stamp it Out.

This song was per­formed for the first time to par­ents/ in­vited guests and has re c e i v e d i n c re d i b l e feed­back.

The chil­dren wrote this song to­gether hav­ing come to the con­clu­sion that sec­tar­i­an­ism is a form of bul­ly­ing – an is­sue which can af­fect any one of them.

Both schools have en­joyed work­ing closely to­gether build­ing up good, long last­ing friend­ships.
