ERASMUS 2019-2022

COMMON ROOTS MAKE YOU is an Erasmus+ project in which all the schools involved have worked on the cultural traditions of our towns, from a European inclusive perspective, of integration and enhancing the skills of both students and teachers.

In the mobilities and the activities carried out, from the preparation to the implementation and evaluation of results, we have collaborated side by side with all the teaching staff involved. One of the objectives of our work was to make both our students and their families feel integrated in a common context, where there are no borders, where it is easy to communicate despite speaking different languages and understand that there are more things that unite us than what separates us.

The adversities of the pandemic and the invasion of Ukraine altered our initial forecasts and forced us to make important changes, such as: giving more weight to the work through eTwinning and changing the dates of the mobilities. However, the difficulties strengthened us and united us even more.

The project was approved in 2019 and due to the pandemic it was extended until 2022.
The schools involved in the project have worked hard, we have felt like brothers and we have transmitted this feeling to the entire educational community of each school:

Agrupamento de Escolas de Paço de Arcos, in Portugal.

2nd Gymnasium of Heraklion Crete, in Greece.

Zespol Szkol Ogolnoksztalcacych w Józefów nad Wisłą, in Poland.

In October 2019, a mobility programme took place in Oliva, only for teachers (four teachers from our school), in order to get to know each other and to structure the lines of work, the mobility, the work in eTwinning that we had been carried out during the years of the project.
