Global Citizenship School

Scoil Moibhi became an INTO Global Citizenship school in September 2016.

 

What is a Global Citizenship School?

These are schools that make a commitment to learn about and act upon global issues.  Humanity is interdependent.  Our school has made a commitment to promote a more just, equitable and sustainable world for all.

 

What does the school do?

  1. Our school teaches Global Citizenship lessons to all or some of the classes.
  2. The classes involved take some follow up action based on what they learned.
  3. Our whole school is informed of the preceding learning and actions.

Global Schools: Primary Education for a Just World

Teacher Exchange programme 2017: Ireland-Portugal

 

Principal Johnny Tyndall will be taking part in the Global Schools: Primary Education for a Just World  exchange in March 2017.  This is an EU funded project, being delivered across 10 European countries and 17 partners, which aims to embed Global Citizenship Education in primary schools through teacher and student education, research and information sharing.  

 

Participants in the exchange have the opportunity to:

  • explore the primary education system in a different national context, with a specific focus on Global Citizenship Education.
  • explore and compare resources designed to aid the teaching of Global Citizenship Education.
  • participate in Global Citizenship Education activities and seminars.
  • visit local Non Government Organisations (NGO's).
  • visit local schools.
  • explore the culture and heritage of Portugal.
  • contribute to a new Global Citizenship Education resource for Irish schools.

 

 

Trocaire Study Visit to Nicaragua

In February 2016 Principal Johnny Tyndall took part in a study visit to Nicaragua with Trocaire. The visit took place over 10 days and was made up of a group of 6 qualified and 2 student teachers, who were accompanied by 3 Trocaire staff from Ireland.  Prior to the visit all participants took part in a one day training session in November 2015, followed by a weekend training in January 2016.

 

During the 10 days the group visited the Trocaire Nicaragua office and a number of Trocaire programmes working on climate justice and gender issues.  They got to witness first hand Trocaire's partnership approach and see the impact of the work, which is only possible because of the support of people and schools from Ireland.  Whilst there the teachers also participated in a number of development education and Trocaire workshops, and visited a local primary and post primary school.

 

On their return the group had to deliver an action plan to help mobilize students, teachers and people in their communities.  Some of the activities undertaken in Scoil Moibhi included: Cake sales, Trocaire boxes, mass speaking, TV appearances (News2day on RTE2), regional finalist in Our World Irish Aid Awards and the creation of a mural in Skerries.
