Pupils from both schools shared their experiences and learning from working together on the project. Mrs Sheryl Stafford E.T.I. stated that
'It was the highlight of my week to see the young people lead the way for us all in Northern Ireland in Shared Education... and to be able to walk into an oasis of calm, creativity, enjoyment and inspiration for a better Northern Ireland.
The speeches from the young people were so heartfelt and engaged the hearts and minds of us in the audience in a profound way...
all the pupils faces and comments were a testimony to the impact of the work.'
Dr. Peter Cunningham, Principal of Ceara stated that
he believed that the project was, 'inclusive education at its very best.'
Mr Gerard Adams, Principal of St. Michael's said that they had been inundated with pupils wanting to participate in the project and that they highly valued the link and hoped that it would continue and grow.
