Global Schoolroom is a registered Irish charity, founded in 2006 by Dublin teachers, Gwen Brennan and Garret Campbell and their friend, Robert Power.

Global Schoolroom provides teacher training in India using volunteer teachers from Ireland ,both serving and retired. Global Schoolroom’s mission is to promote the sharing of educational experience between communities worldwide.

Global Schoolroom is supported by all major groups involved in education in Ireland including the three teacher unions, the JMB, ETBI and is part funded by the unions, Cornmarket Group Financial Services, Friends First, Irish Life and New Ireland Assurance.

The three year diploma delivered by Global Schoolroom is accredited by UCD and Assam Don Bosco University, Guwahati, India, and is targeted at untrained teachers working within the Indian school system in the regions of Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura. So far close to 200 Irish teachers have volunteered for the programme, delivering training to more than one thousand Indian teachers, of whom almost 400 have been awarded diplomas.

Each autumn Global Schoolroom set out to recruit Irish primary and second level teachers who, after intensive preparation and training, will act as tutors and facilitators for the programme. 

Co. Wexford Education Centre will host ‘An Introduction to Global Schoolroom’ presentation followed by Q&A on Wed 14th Oct from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm.

It is with great sadness that we report on the death of our caretaker Mr. Ger Devereux.

Ger was a much loved colleague who took great care of the premises as well as looking after the centre during evenings and weekends.

Ger took great pride in his work and contributed so much to Co. Wexford Education Centre.

We will miss Ger very much. 

Our sympathies go out to Ger's wife Kathleen, family and friends.

Reposal in Crosbie's Funeral Home, Enniscorthy on Friday 18th Sept with removal to Marshalstown Church at 7 pm.

The funeral mass is in Marshalstown Church as 12 O'Clock on Saturday 19th September.

May he rest in peace.
