The EarthView team is very pleased to be visiting St. Columbkille Partnership School for the first time, in part because our visits to Boston are relatively few and we would like to have EarthView programs in the city much more often. The school is named for a sixth-century Irish-Scottish saint, and "partnership" refers to its affiliation with nearby Boston College.

As with several other communities in the area, Brighton is sometimes thought of as an independent city or town, but in reality it is a neighborhood of Boston. As the map suggests, it was formerly a neighborhood of Cambridge, but it "moved" to Boston in 1807.
