Borrisokane Community College has been involved in Erasmus+ Projects since September 2016. These projects are funded by the European Union and provide opportunities for students and teachers from different countries to become involved in an educational project. This usually includes an opportunity to travel but can be virtual too. We have previously worked with partner schools from Germany, Poland, Norway, Lithuania, Spain and Austria.
Over the course of the two previous Erasmus+ projects, different groups of teachers and students visited each of the countries involved in the project. Borrisokane Community College also played host to students and teachers from all partner schools in January 2018 and November 2019.
The following link brings you to a report on the visit from local Lithuanian press. Lithuanian Report on Irish Visit.
Our Erasmus + class took part in the Literary heroes’ project from 2016 to 2018
The website for literary heroes can be found here: Literary Heroes
After the conclusion of the Literary Heroes project our school took part in the Future Erasmus project from 2018 to 2020 and the website for this project can be found here: Future Erasmus
Borrisokane Community College takes part in the Léargas Erasmus+ schools week each year to promote the highly beneficial Erasmus programme and share results with the community showing how it can benefit everyone.
In 2020 we decided to lead our own Erasmus+ project called Europe Evolving Past, Present and Future. However, this project was disrupted by the covid-19 pandemic. We still managed to make the most of this project having many virtual mobilities and in October 2022 we completed the project when our partner schools from Lithuania, Germany, Spain and Norway came to Borrisokane for our final mobility.
