    Abstract

    Newfoundland and Ireland share an ethnic and cultural heritage as well as a history of British administration. One reflection of this shared background is the similarity in the role of religious denominations in school management. This paper reviews elements of these common backgrounds, describes initiatives currently under way in Ireland and Northern Ireland to use ICT to bring children from different religious traditions together in online educational projects, and raises questions about the extent to which lessons learned in either Newfoundland or Ireland might serve to inform practice in both jurisdictions.
