Our Second Mobility: Rieti, Italy

From the 19th to the 24th of March 2012 we had the second mobility in our Project. This time a group of six students and two teachers from our school spent five days in Rieti, Italy. There, teachers and students from all the countries involved in the project shared experiences, carried our common activities, went sightseeing, practised English and planned future events.

Here are some nice photographs: 

After the trip, we asked our students to write their diaries of their stay in Rieti (Italy). You can read some of them if you visit our twinspace: Click in the section Local Landmarks and then Pupil's work

Córdoba’s most important landmark: the Great Mosque

The next task in our Project schedule was to create a Power Point Presentation on a significant landmark from each partner to be distributed amongst the group. Most of the students involved in the Comenius Project in our school have worked hard at it and have made some interesting presentations. We have selected one of these to send to our partners.

Our First Mobility: Canterbury, England

From the 13th to the 19th of  November a group of six students and two teachers went on a trip to Canterbury. There we met our partners from the other six countries that are involved in this Comenius Project. It was a really enriching experience for both teachers and students.

Here is a Power-Point Presentation made by the students who went on the trip. It is a good summary of the activites we carried out in England.

Our students at Medina Azahara school worked hard and many of  them took part in the Logo Competition. They luckily had the help and advice of their Art teacher.
These are some of the logos our students created.

We took all these logos to Canterbury,in England where our first mobility took place.There we had to choose a winning logo to represent or project.

Our Project and Partners

Our school, IES Medina Azahara, is involved in a COMENIUS Multilateral school partnership. Our project title is European Multicultural Landscapes.
Our project will compare and contrast the influence of religious and historical buildings on local culture. In doing so we shall link subjects as: citizenship, history, religion, geography, literature, art and foreign languages. We want to strengthen international ties for the partnership schools giving pupils the opportunity to experience European cultures, whilst also developing their skills in personal learning and thinking. 
Seven schools from seven different European countries take part in this interesting project:
a) The Abbey School, from Canterbury in England
b) Zespol Szkol Ogolnoksztalcacych Nr 1 Spolecznego Towarzystwa Oswiatowego, from Warsaw in Poland
c) Istituto Professionale R.A. Costaggini from Rieti in Italy
d) Galilei-Gymnasium from Hamm, in Germany
e) Olympion Gymnasium– Lyceum from  Palliometocho in Cyprus
f) ΤΡΙΤΟ  (3o) Gymnasio Kerkyras from  Corfu in  Greece
g) IES Medina Azahara from Córdoba in Spain, our school!!!

Students will have a chance to get to know their peers in other countries and keep in touch with them through ICT and planned exchange trips. They will be looking for differences and similarities between partner countries, becoming more open-minded and tolerant. This way we are going to discover the European dimension of education.
