Alien exchange, proverb exchange, masterchef

From September to Decemeber we concentrated on our Alien projects (Children painted an alien based on a description and sent the description to their counterparts who also had to paint the same alien. These aliens were then displayed in the Wiki) . We also worked on Proverbs common to Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland (Children from Belfast sent us some proverbs and we illustrated them and vice versa). We also set up forum to forum communications between the children. After Christmas we continued with the forum chats and the moodling and we also displayed some photos in the gallery. We then concentrated on our Masterchef project, where the children had to design and make a recipe and then present it on elluminate using powerpoint).


Causey Farm, Meath. Both Schools arrived at the venue not long after 10:30am where they were greeted by lovely hosts who promptly split the two schools up into three different groups. Each group had a group leader who helped the children get accquainted with their friends from the other schools through a variety of conversation starter games. The groups then proceeded to complete some activities: colour maze, exploring the farm, a bodhran session, a tractor ride, a picnic lunch and bog hopping before returning home tired but very happy!


We video conferenced a few times during the year and the children really enjoyed this.

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.
