About

About

CASE is for primary and post-primary schools in Northern Ireland and the Border Counties of Ireland. Its focus is on schools with no or limited previous experience of providing shared education opportunities to their children and young people. CASE aims to build a culture of good relations among school children and to equip them with the skills and attitudes needed to contribute to a society where the cycle of sectarianism and intolerance is broken and a culture of collaboration and cooperation is the norm.

The key aim of CASE is to provide direct, sustained, curriculum-based contact between children and teachers from all backgrounds, through collaboration between schools from different sectors and diverse backgrounds in order to promote good relations and enhance children’s skills and attitudes to contribute to a cohesive society.  This includes:

  • shared partnerships between schools within Northern Ireland
  • shared partnerships between schools in Northern Ireland and the Border Counties of Ireland
  • shared partnerships between schools within the Border Counties of Ireland.

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. If your school is interested in taking part, you can apply any time. Contact Marie Heraughty for more information.
