Dissolving Boundaries through Sport

Age: 12,13
Project Year: 2010-11

The project outlines sporting achievements in each school

Pupils worked together to create a display that is evident in the front foyer of each school. The project outlines sporting achievements in each school and gives pupils the opportunity to experience different sports that they do not normally play in their own communities.

The highlight so far for the pupils has been creating their profile and scrapbook and receiving each other's scrapbook. Also, chatting and getting to know the students from the partner school using the moodle website. Video conferencing has really brought a lot of momentum to the project, as students get very excited after seeing their partner class.

Face-to-Face

For our face-to-face meeting we took part in a day of team building activities in Lustybeg Co. Fermanagh. The students presented their projects to each other and took part in activities such as raft building, 4*4 off road driving, archery, lateral tasks and canoeing.

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.
