We have had a busy and exciting year working on the Grow From Seeds Project. It is an initiative we are taking part in through Erasmus+. We are working with the Gaiety School of Acting, Plan Ireland, La Transplanisphere Theatre in Paris and Gilden Grundschule in Dortmund, Germany. All of the partners are working together to create an Intercultural Education programme to teach in our schools through drama and story. The project will continue to grow until completion in 2020 so watch this space!
Here is the video taken at our first meeting in Dublin where we met all the partners and they introduced themselves.
We met in Dortmund for our second transnational meeting. We achieved a lot and finalised plans for piloting the play process. This is a photo of our group meeting some local stakeholders.
The press were also there to record the event. Here is a link to the article in German…. There is also an article from Kildare on the project. Enjoy.

Grow From Seeds Update!
Last month (February), Caroline and Séamus from The Gaiety School of Acting came to work with our two 2nd classes piloting the next set of workshops for the Grow From Seeds project. They all had great fun and used drama activities and story as methods to explore what Intercultural Education is all about. The pictures below say it all!
