- Child-friendly resources, like the very popular 12-page pupil’s magazine
- Curriculum-linked teaching materials to help teachers deliver across the primary curriculum areas
- An easy to use website with further information and project ideas

Taking part in the Our World Irish Aid Awards has been a fantastic experience for my 5th & 6th classes. The children have gained great insight into the problems faced by people in the developing world and the ability they have to lift themselves out of poverty if given the opportunity. The project encompassed all areas of the primary school curriculum. The children themselves would regard the Our World Irish Aid Awards as one of the highlights of their primary school experience!
