Worldwise is the Irish Aid schools linking and immersion programme, funded by Irish Aid and managed by Léargas. This development education programme supports school partnership projects between second level schools in Ireland and partners in the global South. Our aim is to establish educational, mutual and sustainable partnerships in which students and teachers from Irealnd and developing countries can learn from and with each other about global issues. As part of our programme we provide funding to networks of schools in Ireland involved in school partnership work. The aim of this funding is to support groups of Irish schools in establishing common approaches and best prctice in school partnerships through the sharing of learning from individual projects. Gemini Ireland is one of five networks receiving funding from Worldwise in 2008-9. We are very grateful to Worldwise for their support which will enable us to develop and grow. In particular we would like to thank Mary Mc Carthy for her help and encouragement
