Charitable Irish Society AGM 2018.JPG

On May 30, Saint Mary's University and Peaceful Schools International presented at the AGM of the Charitable Irish Society of Halifax. The students facilitated an excellent presentation on the Northern Ireland Peace Education Program and were extremely well received by the audience.

The Society is a proud and generous supporter of the program.  As their website mentions, “these students most certainly deserve our deepest admiration for all they have done locally and internationally in the name of teaching conflict resolution skills to younger generations.“
