Learning - Together Apart

During the pandemic, the dedicated teachers from Ballougry, Rathmullan and Ramelton kept the partnership alive honing their collaborative online skills, learning and working together while remaining grounded in their own location.

CASE can support Well-being and Blended Learning Needs in partnerships

As schools reopen Well-being of staff and pupils are a key priority.  CASE has designed a programme to support partnerships in meeting these needs and this will be followed by a support programme for Blended Learning.  For details and how to apply, contact your CASE Development Officer.

Together we have achieved great things

The focus of Donagh NS in Carndonagh, St. Columb's NS. Moville and Scoil Mhuire Gleneely this year was on well-being and health.  School closures due to COVID 19 required a radical rethink in their approach- could momentum be sustained and collaboration re-imagined? 

Partnership thanks Frontline Staff through shared artwork

The current school closures did not prevent pupils from St Oliver's National School in Carlingford and St Brigid's Special School in Dundalk completing their second year of shared education as they worked together on what was really important to them at this time -expressing their thanks to the frontline workers.

‘And in the house we moved with gravid ease’

Seamus Heaney’s line ‘And in the house we moved with gravid ease’ from his poem ‘The Churning’ possibly now rings true in many of the homes of pupils and teachers who until recently were actively sharing classes and experiences through CASE.  A partnership between St Joseph’s Rathdonnell and Trentagh NS, Co. Donegal brought this to the fore. Part of their shared work explored historical documents from ‘The Schools’ Collection’ [i] and used this as the basis for an experiment -butter-making. This was one way they were integrating their curriculum, covering science, history, literacy and research. 

COVID 19 Update

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, it is vital that we continue to follow best practice guidelines, especially physical distancing and practice good hand-washing hygiene. Most of all we can come together to support each other by staying home and staying safe.

If you have a specific query regarding your partnership, please contact your Development Officer for guidance.

We are currently working with our funders to approve a mechanism for signing off on this year’s shared activity and we will send out further information about this in due course.

Please remember we are here to help and support you however we can in relation to your school charting a way through this extremely difficult and challenging time.
