Year One

CELEBRATION OF UNITED NATIONS DAY (OCTOBER), 24th)
October, 2020

To celebrate the “United Nations Day” all partners organized a social action involving their students and Erasmus Clubs representing their schools.

The Portuguese School gathered some goods to offer the social organisation “Mais Coração” so someone may have a brighter Christmas.

   

Greek Team (3rd Gymnasium of Mytilene community, students and their parents) chose to donate food supplies to the Hellenic Rescue Team, a voluntary Search and Rescue Organization whose mission is to offer aid to our fellow human beings, whose lives are in danger, under any conditions and in all natural and non-natural environments, within Greece and abroad. The students also created some digital Christmas cards, to share with those who are awayand due to the quarantine, we are not able to meet them in person.

The Polish school chose to support a local hospice – Betania. The whole PSP 5 in Opole school community was engaged in the charity event. Students and their parents donated beautiful poisenttias to the hospice patients. Our pupils painted Christmas themed pictures and prepared cards. We hope we were a part of bringing the Christmas spirit to Betania.

   

Italian students decided to celebrate UN Day giving thanks and their best wishes to health care workers and volunteers in their area, old people in retirement homes and refugees, also supporting Nicolò Govoni’s Still I Rise . They felt a bit like Santa’s elfs working hard, creating, delivering, also film making. In these social distancing times videomessaging was a good way to be close to people.

 

 

CELEBRATION OF ERASMUS DAYS (15-17 OCTOBER)

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF COMMEMORATION IN MEMORY OF THE VICTIMS OF THE HOLOCAUST (27TH JANUARY)
January, 2020

Each school organized a Stereotype Wall: after having watched something about the Holocaust (pictures, documentaries or a short movie), students were invited to stick a post-it on a board expressing their feelings and opinions upon the issue of Human Rights.

 

DIVERSITY EXHIBITION
December, 2019

This was also a joint activity to be shared among schools. Each partner created with the students sets of four postcards upon the theme Diversity. These postcards were sent to the other schools in order to set a Diversity exhibition that could somehow alert other students to the issue of Diversity inside all schools.

 

ERASMUS TREES
December, 2019

Each school gave the others a cultural item to display at the Erasmus Tree. This way all schools made a Christmas Tree displaying itens to show Diversity.

 

LOGO CONTEST
November, 2019

The Project Logo contest was set and participated by all schools according to the established rules:

1) Each school set an internal logo competition and chooses two logos. The deadline was the 10th October.

The logos were related to the Project’s theme: social acceptance, minorities, immigrants, … and needed to be original works. The title could or not be included;

2) The two selected logos by each partner were uploaded on the Drive (jpeg or pgn format);
3) The 10 logos were uploaded on Twinspace (Coordinator’s task);
4) The coordinator created the selection quiz and uploaded the link on Twinspace;
5) Each school had 30 votes (only 30) and couldn’t vote on his own logos. As soon as the link was published on
Twinspace the schools had one week to complete the voting;
6) The results were published on Twinspace and the official logo of the project will be used on all official documents.
