The Columba Schools project explores the life and legacy of Columba through interactive learning and the production of a pageant.

This project has been delivered yearly since 2018 to local schools including; Fountain Primary School, Longtower Primary School,  and Nazareth House Primary School.

This project is funded by The Department of Foreign Affairs.

2021/2022 Project

This year we were delighted to be able to do our production of the Columba Pageant. Due to COVID-19 restrictions each school performed different scenes from the play which were recorded in Echo Echo Dance Theatre by media students from the Our City Our Story project.

This was a very exciting experience for all involved, and big thanks go to Victoria Harrison who choreographed the production.

The recording is currently being edited and we hope to have a screening in May.
