EREBB Global Classroom Partners

Inviting 40 Edmund Rice Schools from around the world to be part of a new global education pilot project linking students, through video conferences, to build a better world



The Global Classroom Partners Program links young people from around the world to learn from, with and about each other, while exploring some of the worlds most important issues. Groups of students (with their teacher)  undertake two lessons than have two video conferences with a global classroom partner.
