Ulster-Scots for Primary Schools

New resources to help pupils explore and appreciate the diversity and richness of local cultures and traditions. The main aim of these resources is to build capacity within primary schools so that they can teach elements of Ulster-Scots and shared cultural heritage using existing staff and resources.
