Local Schools

Shed members have developed strong links with most of the local primary schools throughout North Belfast. This has provided an opportunity to engage and participate in various inter-generational activities with young people across the local North Belfast area. Example projects include the construction of planters for a school garden project, the design of a commemorative plaque and a garden bench in memory of a pupil as well as the manufacturing of ‘buddy benches’, ‘welly boot stands‘ and a ‘book case’ for a schools book club. Produced by working alongside young people themselves, these items have since been successfully distributed across a number of local schools including Cavehill, Ballysillian, Holy Cross Girls, Curry, Wheatfield, Holy Cross boys, Cliftonville Integrated School and have received extensive praise from teaching staff who also participated in the initiative.
