Age: 9,10
Project Year: 2010-11

Pupils worked on designing a house and foods of europe

Both classes were split up in 10 groups (2/3 in each group) and each group was matched with a group from the other school.  Using the forums, the groups got to know each other first and a little about each others schools.  Then they started to talk about and design a house that they would like to build.  During the face to face meetings they will use the computer room in Carniny Primary School to create a brochure, advertising their house and when they meet in Donabate/Portrane Educate Together National School, they will make a 3-D model of their house using recycled materials

Face to face meeting

Three Face to Face meetings were held:
The first one in Carniny Primary school in February
The second one in Donabate
The third one in Armagh
On each school face to face the children  co-hosted a European Fair in which the classes from the rest of the school will visited. The children made/bought food items for their country that they sold for paper euros. Each country tried to sell the most.

The third face to face was a celebration of the project in which each school traveled to Armagh for a fun day.

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.
