CASE aims to build a culture of good relations amongst children and young people in a school based setting. Delivery is through the provision of direct, sustained, curricular-based contact between children and teachers from all backgrounds.
Through working in partnership, the participating schools will promote community cohesion, enhance educational outcomes for all pupils and provide shared professional development. CASE is open to all schools in the six Border Counties of Ireland and schools in Northern Ireland which are not currently involved in the DSC Signature Project for Shared Education.
This project is supported by the European Union's PEACE Programme, managed by the Special EU Programme Body.
News from around the partnerships
Children in P6 participated in an African Drumming session and a Philosophy taster talk with Mr McAreavey, Head teacher in Holy Cross boys. The children had great fun making music together on the djembe drums and learning about rhythm. The feedback from the children was very positive and we look forward to bringing Philosophy into our school in the next academic year. What is Philosophy for children? Philosophical development is giving students the opportunity to practice and improve philosophising and the intellectual competencies involved in this, which have wider application in most, if not all subjects and becomes an important part of life-long learning. Through the Shared Education programme we hope to equip the pupils and teachers involved in these life skills and equip them for future learning and experiences.
This was the first year of the Darley National School & St. Ninnidh's Primary School Shared Education partnership and our theme was Mental & Physical Well-being. The Sports Day was a fitting celebration of a very successful introductory year!
