The biggest impact has been opening up students minds and thinking regarding global issues. Students have been forced to evaluate their role and responsibility as (a) citizen of the world. Students are being forced to comprehend possible solutions to global problems and investigated the many barriers which prevent..development in some parts of the world.

My TY students are now so enthusiastic and passionate about development education. They approach me informing me of global news stories and are shocked and appalled of the injustice of it all. It’s fantastic to see that they have such an interest in these issues.

I feel the work they do is tremendous. It goes far beyond funding. The support at every level has allowed our school to root DE at a whole school level. It is a ‘one stop shop’ to turn to for advice and support. Training is superb and offers teachers an opportunity to network and learn. The WWGS Global Passport is really essential for a school of our size to audit DE in our school. The WWGS Doing DE series is exactly what teachers need. With all the recent changes with the new Junior Cycle, it marries very well. Where time is of the essence it presents teachers with ideas that has been warmly welcomed in our school
