Corrymeela Programmes


Inspire Project

Corrymeela is delighted to make available a series of lesson plans and activities for schools and youth groups which will enable young people to explore the legacy of conflict. In particular this material focusses on the centenary of the ending of WW1, the so–called ‘Great War.’

Lesson plans:

1. The Poppy

2. Local Heritage

3. Poetry

War Memorials download

These lesson plans have been designed for Key Stage 3 in schools in NI and will be useful to youth workers as well. They reflect our own particular complexity in remembering and commemorating and will help young people, in a variety of settings, reflect on the War.

A special video recording of the play Peace Day is available on the Corrymeela’s Channel Youtube channel and below. This play was commissioned as part of the Corrymeela Inspire programme and was first performed in City Hall to mark the centenary of the ending of World War One. Two hundred year 10 pupils representing all school sectors here were present for the performance and took part discussions on the themes of the play. We are delighted to make the play available to a wider audience.


Inspire is part of a UK and Northern Ireland–wide peace building initiative and more details on the programme are available here.
