Rugby 7s Tournament celebrates Peace Fields twinning with Flanders and ERGS’s involvement in Global Peace Games 2019


We were delighted to welcome Mr Ernie Brennan from the Childrens’ Football Alliance and ambassador of the Global Peace Games to school today, to present us with a Peace Fields plaque that officially twins the Eisenhower playing fields with the Flanders fields in Belgium. To celebrate the occasion, as the first school in Ireland to go through the twinning process, we held an U12 Rugby 7s tournament on the playing fields, welcoming teams from Omagh Academy, Devenish College and Erne Integrated College. A group of Year 10 ambassadors, who help with the running of today’s events, are now very much looking forward to travelling to Messiness Peace Village, Belgium later this year, where they will represent Northern Ireland in this year’s Global Piece Games residential and workshops. Well done to all those involved in a very successful afternoon of sport and celebration.

Mrs E Armstrong (ERGS Headteacher) signs the Peace Fields Project’s Declaration for Peace Certificate, with Mr E Brennan (NCFA CEO) and ERGS Ambassadors for Peace, witnessing the official twinning with Flanders Peace Field. ERGS are the first school in Northern Ireland to twin a designated area of play with the site of the 1914 Christmas Truces, Mesen, Belgium,
