Waringstown Primary School is bringing the world into its classrooms! The school recently earned a Level 1 Global Learning Certificate in recognition of its continued success in implementing the Global Learning Programme (GLP).
Since joining the GLP in April 2017, the school has committed to providing education for a fair and sustainable world. This means that its pupils receive teaching that not only helps them learn about our planet, but also enables them to contribute to creating a better world.
GLP Coordinator Orla Devine offered her congratulations to the school. She said, “A huge well done to Waringstown Primary School. It’s wonderful to see the school embracing global learning in this way. Excellent progress has already been made and I wish staff and pupils every success as they continue their global learning journey together.”
The GLP helps schools in Northern Ireland embed global learning through the provision of teacher training, guidance and resources. 50% of all primary, post-primary and special schools in NI have received support from the programme since its launch in early 2015.
