Face to face:

Met at the Funtasia Waterpark Drogheda. We had a great day in Funtasia! The staff were excellent and I would highly recommend it. Each school arrived at approximately 11am. The Funtasia leaders put them into groups and they got started playing bowling. After bowling the children went swimming for two hours where they enjoyed lots of slides, fountains etc. We ate a lovely lunch (also provided by Funtasia), the children were served nuggets/burger/pizza and chips. Each group met their partner group from the project and chatted together! We had a brilliant day!


We did video conferencing as a whole class. As it was our first time doing it we were a little nervous but we soon found it to be quite fun! Each group met their partner group, introduced themselves and said a quick hello! The children were very impressed as were the teachers.

Schools Involved

Media Gallery

For Dissolving Boundaries Day 2014 we invited schools to send us short video recordings that show what DB means to them. We've pieced these together into a movie!

A documentary about linking schools through ICT; case studies of cross-border links between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Dissolving Boundaries programme and in Israel through the TEC program.
