Dissolving Boundaries

Entitled “The Dissolving Boundaries Programme”, the initiative has been running since 1999 and is funded by the two Departments of Education and managed by the University of Ulster and National University of Ireland, Maynooth. It aims to develop principles of good citizenship through collaborative project work which means that our school will be partnered with Durrow N.S. in the Republic of Ireland . Pupils in the two schools will correspond with each other and work in collaboration on a topic on the curriculum.

Correspondence between our two schools will take place through a protected website that is monitored by the participating teacher/s in the schools and by the programme organizers based in the two universities. Pupils will also make contact with each other using video-conferencing in the classroom. Finally, participating pupils will have the opportunity to travel to a face-to-face meeting with the pupils in the partner school.
