The Flax Trust continues to support The Education Task Group to develop a vision for Catholic Education in North Belfast. The vision is to build an ‘All Faith Education Village’. Having entered the Development Proposal stage which is great news, we have now carried out the Public Consultation with over 5500 votes cast for the New College. We are waiting for a government response to the people’s vote.
