Our Local Area

Age: 8,9
Project Year: 2010-11

Students worked on developing relationships with their partner school while getting to know their locality

Students initiated the link by setting up the moodle groups and commenting on the forums. They also uploaded personal profiles and photos to their wiki page telling each of their partners all about themselves. The class then researched and compliled information about their local area. They also took photographs of the local area and put these on their Wiki pages so the children in the partner school could find out about the area.


We had our face to face meeting in Share centre Lisnaskea. Pupils participated in lots of outdoor activities and worked together in teams. The day was enjoyed by all the students.

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.
