Trevor Lunn MLA said: “This is a great message of support for the integrated education movement. This announcement is in line with the Education Department’s obligation, as the Minister himself has stated, to encourage and facilitate integrated schools who wish to expand.
“I believe we should be doing more to develop the integrated education sector. While the Minister has concentrated on shared education campuses, I believe there is a need to deliver both education models.
“I look forward to future announcements by the Education Minister on the expansion of other integrated schools where demand exists.”
