'School of Sanctuary' Award

Monday 16th September 2019 marked the start of Good Relations Week in NI. Belfast Boys’ Model School celebrated at Belfast City Hall as we received a ‘School of Sanctuary’ Award. Mrs Beattie has worked hard with our newcomer pupils to ensure everyone feels happy, safe and able to achieve their academic potential when they arrive at the school.

We were so proud to hear our ‘International Mentors’ - Erik, Kevin, David, Omar and Oliwier speak at the ceremony this morning, telling the audience about their work in making Boys’ Model more inclusive and welcoming, providing support with settling in and overcoming language barriers.
