School Aims

Comenius is a European project funded by the European Union, that enables schools across Europe to work together.  It has two main aims:

  • To develop knowledge and understanding among young people and education staff of the diversity of European cultures and languages.
  • To help young people to acquire basic life skills and competences for their personal development, for future employment and for active European citizenship.

We were successful in applying for a European grant to enable our school to take part in a partnership between eight other European schools throughout Europe.  Our partner schools are:

  • Spain - Colegio Angel de la Guarda, Nigran
  • Portugal - Agrupamento de Escolas, Povoa de Lanhoso
  • Turkey - Muhittin Ustundag Ilkoogretim Okulu, Istanbul
  • Italy - Scuola Primaria 'Mascarucci', Pesaro
  • Hungary - Fodor Andras Atlalanos Iskola, Lengyeltoti
  • Czech Republic - Zakladni Umelecka Skola, Vitkov
  • Slovakia - Zakladna skola Michala Tareka Abraham, Abraham.
  • Poland - Zespol Szkolno-Przedszkolny, Wroclaw

Our project will last for two years and during this time each school will take in turns to host a visit for all the partner schools.  This year the visits are:

Portugal     September 2011

England      December 2011

Spain          March 2012

Italy            May 2012

At the moment we are busy preparing for the visit to England.  We will be hosting all eight partner schools w/b 5th December.  During their visit we will entertain our partners as well as celebrating what it means to be English.

 As part of the project we will also complete a number of activities within our school.  Activities planned for the next few months inlcude:

  • An international website that celebrates each country's culture.
  • A science day in each school which celebrates achievements of famous scientists from each country.
  • A study of Marie Curie.
  • A study of famous cultural moments and buildings within each country.
