What's Cooking?

Age: 10,11
Project Year: 2010-11

Pupils worked on a collaborative cookery book

The students got to know each other by sending messages on the forums and completing wiki profiles. “What’s Cooking?” recipe book is the result of our partnerships innovative approach to enterprise. While the school in Northern Ireland concentrated on traditional Irish recipes, our partner focussed on international cuisine. Cookery demonstrations took place in both schools. They involved a chef from the local area, a retired Special Needs Assistant and enthusiastic teachers who cooked their favourite dishes for the pupils.


The highlight for us was our face-to-face meeting. We visited the Dublin Cookery School and had the most amazing day with the most amazing chefs. We baked naan bread, made chocolate cupcakes, did fun quizzes relating to food and had a delicious barbeque followed by a lunch of meatballs and pasta. We had a great time together and got to know each other a little better, shy at first but we managed to mingle quite well by the end of our visit. Received a lovely email from the Cookery School on the following day.

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.
