World Wise Global Schools

Pobalscoil Na Trionoide has been part of the World Wise Global Schools programme since 2018. World Wise Global Schools (WWGS) programme works with 350 schools nationwide, in pursuit of our aim to integrate Global Citizenship Education into all aspects of teaching and learning at post-primary level. They do this by providing a comprehensive range of supports and interventions for schools — including grant funding, training, events, resources and personalised support from our staff team.

Global Citizenship Education (GCE) is a powerful vehicle through which we can better understand the world we live in, and take action to change it as informed global citizens. WWGS strives for a solidarity over charity approach to GCE which means it is not about ‘helping’ others, rather building critical thinking skills and challenging the root causes (systems and structures) which allow inequality to continue, and standing in solidarity with communities to create change and actively assess our own roles in these inequalities. Ensuring that the voices and stories from people and communities affected by, and tackling injustices, is important.

Having already had a staff committee in place for almost two years, in February of 2020, we established our own WWGS Student Committee in Pobalscoil and since then the students have been working hard on developing projects to raise awareness of and take meaningful action on some of the complex issue facing our world today.

Some projects / actions currently underway for 2020/2021 include:

  • Senior cycle students working on raising awareness about sustainable fashion in our school community, with two leaving certificate planning an online Thrift-Shop event for November 2020 to help fight against the unsustainability of fast fashion and its impact on our environment and the human impact
  • Junior cycle students planning to produce ‘Eco-Bricks’ and ‘Eco-Briquettes’ in order to help reduce the amount of pollution being released into our environment every day
  • A team of Students, both Junior and Senior Cycle, helping to develop the school’s Biodiversity programme as well as learn about and raise awareness of the global biodiversity crisis we are facing and what we and others around the globe are doing to help
  • TYs are critically engaging on an ongoing regular basis with a range of GCE themes working towards a series of projects and actions with the aim to raise awareness of global issues and creating some meaningful change in our local and global communities

These are just a few of the exciting projects currently underway with more set to begin in January!

We are proud that in April of 2020, Pobalscoil na Trionoide was awarded the silver Diplomatic Passport Award for our work throughout the 2018 and 2019 academic years.
