This project will continue our Comenius Project which we are going to conclude at the end of July 2009.
The project involved European schools from Germany, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria and Estonia coming together to explore the concept of migration and it’s impact on native and migrant pupils and the society in which they live. The project had specifically designed activities leading to the sharing of statistics, stories, food, music and other cultural aspects. The aim is to work and live together in mutual respect and tolerance.
The schools, working together produced collections of their work and established a webpage which provides a rewarding, active experience and a future useful resource for other schools.
The pupils of the participating schools along with their teachers had the unique chance to explore and grow in understanding across borders and languages. And this is the reason we decided to go on with the project. We want to stay in contact by using the possibilities of the eTwinning platform. The ultimate impact on pupils and teachers within their schools and communities is enriching and life-enhancing and will hopefully encourage other schools to participate in our project.
