Lyttle welcomes integrated status for Harding Memorial

East Belfast Alliance MLA Chris Lyttle has welcomed news Harding Memorial Primary School is the latest school to move towards integrated status.

An overwhelming 87 percent of parents voted in favour of the move in June 2019, with the Education Minister ratifying the proposal.

Chris Lyttle MLA said: “It’s fantastic to see a local school take the step towards integration.

“I believe the extent of the parental support for this transformation is an indication of the desire to see more integrated provision in the area.

“I hope this move will add to the conversations about the kind of education parents are now seeking for their children, with Harding Memorial just one of a number of schools across Northern Ireland moving in this direction.”
