Citizenship

Age: 13,14
Project Year: 2010-11

Students worked collaboratively to become aware of the world around them

Students in the partner schools got to know each other in their groups using the forums. They completed pupil profiles on the wikis that they shared with their partner school. Our project had three main aspects: Operation Christmas Child, Poverty Locally and Poverty Worldwide.

Operation Christmas Child: As part of this project the children wrapped, packed and sent shoeboxes to children in need.

Poverty Locally: Pupils from both schools choose a local charity to investigate. The students also invited guest speakers from the charity to speak in their schools.

Poverty Worldwide: Pupils from both schools choose a worldwide charity to investigate. The students from Monkstown completed a project on UNICEF and its work while the students from Commerage completed a project on Trocaire.

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.
