There have been international projects and activities in our school since the year 2008. We have done three multi-school Comenius projects and two student exchanges (IPM), all funded by the EU.
We have also received assistant teachers from abroad and made several Physics trips to Switzerland to visit CERN to see the particle accelerator there.
We have worked with partner schools from Estonia, France, Germany, Holland, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and the UK.
In the school year 2015-2016 our school received EU funding for a new Erasmus+ KA1 project for school staff, and so the teachers of our school had a chance to participate in international courses and have a job shadowing period abroad. You can read about their experiences in our school’s international affairs blog.
At the moment we are working on a two-year long Erasmus+ KA2 – strategic partnerships project called R.E.S.P.E.C.T. The aim is to research and exchange good practises in inclusive education and tackle problems such as bullying, absenteeism, discrimination and early school leaving. Both teachers and students are involved in the project. The project coordinator is IES Valsequillo in Gran Canaria, and the other participants are schools from Germany, Greece, Iceland and Poland.
