EU officials from Northern Ireland will be returning to school this week to talk to students about how the European Union works and what career opportunities are available.  The EU-wide 'Back to School' project sends officials of the EU institutions back to school for a day - if possible to a school where they were once a student.

Amongst those returning to Northern Ireland are Roisin Morris who works for the European Commission in its Directorate-General for Competition.  Roisin will be visiting Our Lady and St. Patrick's College and Victoria College in Belfast. Helena O'Hare will be visiting her former school, Assumption Grammar, to give the students an insight into her role as a translator at the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the EU in Luxembourg.

    Press releases - EU officials from Northern Ireland go 'Back to School'

    The 'Back to School' activities in Northern Ireland are part of an initiative which takes place annually across the EU.  It was launched in 2007 when German officials went back to school to mark the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome and proved so popular that it has expanded every year.
