World Wise Global Schools (WWGS) was established in 2013. Since then, the programme has worked 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.
This is achieved 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. It equips both educators and learners with the knowledge, skills and values to act ethically and sustainably in a world that is both complex and highly interconnected.
Ms. Hand has been instrumental in advocating the need to be more aware of our place in the world and how to be a more conscientious citizen in world were resources are limited.
The school community put in a huge effort this year and were honoured with a Global Citizens Passport Award this Year. We are looking forward to becoming ever more connected with this great initiative in education.
