New Comenius Project for 2012-2014
Following our two previous projects which have been very successful, we decided to embark on a third Comenius project. These projects are funded by the British Council. We were lucky enough to be accepted on two new Comenius projects which meant we had to choose which we would pursue. We have decided to go with a French lead project as we had worked with this teacher in our first project, ‘Gardeners for mutual Understanding’.
The main objective of the project ‘ACTE’ (Arts and Cultures across Europe) is to bring schools from 6 European countries together and enable them to get to know each other and understand their own cultural heritage and their partners’ cultural heritage too.
The project’s main goal is to develop a sense of European Identity among pupils and educational communities through the discovery and sharing of artistic and cultural backgrounds.
Schools involved are from:
- Lyon, France (Lead school)
- Vratza, Bulgaria
- Sicily, Italy
- Nufringen, Germany
- Seville, Spain
The first visit will be made by Mr Taylor and Miss Webber when they travel to Lyon in December. At this first meeting, the 2 year project will be planned and mapped out. We will have funding for 12 mobilities over the two years of the project. We will write to our partner schools, take part in joint Art projects and carry out Skype web conferences with groups of children in our partner schools.
