Have your say on Lisanelly Shared Campus – Ruane

Education Minister, Caitríona Ruane, has encouraged people to take part in the public consultation on the Lisanelly Shared Campus in Omagh.

Speaking after the fifth meeting of the Lisanelly Shared Educational Campus Steering Group the Minister commented: “With the Lisanelly Campus we are aiming to not just construct new buildings but also build a community. In order to do this however we need the help of the public. I would encourage everyone to participate in the public consultation and help shape the future of the Lisanelly Shared Campus. With vision and foresight we have the opportunity to create something that is extraordinary and not just ordinary. A campus built on equality and excellence where future generations of children and young people learn the skills and confidence to succeed.

“This project is a priority for both me and my Department. I have been greatly impressed by the work to date from the designers. Until now the idea of a shared campus has just been a concept. However the plans presented at this meeting really show how this concept is being shaped into the buildings and facilities where the children will learn and play. What is clear is that the schools of this area, by working together, have the opportunity to access facilities that would not be deliverable on their own. These facilities also have the potential to enrich the lives of all those in the local community through their use by community groups and outside organisations.”
