Learning Circle 2012
The students in Inver National School have enrolled for a Learning Circles project.
Places and Perspectives encourages students to explore regional history, culture, government, and geography by sharing their knowledge with people from different locations. The goal is to help students understand how historical events and geographic conditions interact to help shape their lives and gives them a deeper understanding of themselves, their families and their communities.
Learning Circles are highly interactive, project-based partnerships among a small number of schools located throughout the world. There are two sessions each year, September – January and January – May.
Our partner schools are in New Brunswick in Canada, New Jersey and Washington in the USA, in Tartarstan in Russia and in Katmandu, Nepal. We will do a project about places and perspectives with them.
See our survey here and look here to see the huge map we made to show where our partner schools are located.

We have sent our partner schools a welcome pack with some interesting items enclosed.
Our project was called ‘Outside the school gates’ and we wanted to compare what we see outside our school with what our partners see when they go outside their schools.
This is what we found and you may follow the links to compare the areas:
- Inver National School, Ireland
- University Prep, Seattle, WA, USA
- Woodstock Middle School, Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada
