We are so pleased and proud to hear Integrated Education Fund (IEF), along with The Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE) have been jointly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2019.
Tina Merron, IEF Chief Executive, said: “This is a great honour, and a testament to all the pioneers who have been committed to opening and developing integrated schools in the face of social challenges and political inertia. Thanks are due to the nominators and also to the donors and supporters who have helped grow integrated education in Northern Ireland in response to parental demand.”
The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2019 will be chosen from the hundreds of nominees and the decision announced in October.
