Year 13 World Planning Day

Every Autumn, Year 13 pupils attend the University of Ulster’s ‘World Town Planning Day’ and for one day, experience the life and decision dilemmas of a Town Planner. This is an excellent event which helps our students to understand where the subject of Geography can take them and what the University of Ulster’s Town Planning course entails as well as the many doors of opportunity that are opened through studying it. Students are addressed by Dr Gavan Rafferty, Course Director (and a past pupil) and Chief Planning Officers before participating in a series of workshops that explore planning’s role for delivering the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Many of our pupils are now considering this as a possible discipline to study at third level education and as a future career.
