Over the last few years, the School was involved in six Erasmus+ projects, which enabled students and teachers to cultivate a European identity that complements local identities. The six projects which were successfully completed were:
Project 1: Post-factEUal: Upper Secondary Schools (2018-2021) Goetheschule Essen in Germany, partnering with Ikast-Brande Gymnasium in Denmark, Rotterdam International in The Netherlands, Enrico Fermi in Italy, and The Heritage Private School in Cyprus
This project sought to equip students with the critical thinking skills necessary to navigate their way through the ‘facts’ from the 1930s Europe to the present. An interactive ebook was created, which documented their transnational work in a pluralistic manner.
Project 2: SLAM-STEM Learning Activities & Methods: Lower Secondary Schools (2018-2020) Fran Koncelak School in Croatia, partnering with 2nd Gymnasium of Nea Ionia Attikis in Greece, Tartu Raatuse School in Estonia, and The Heritage Private School in Cyprus
Recent research has indicated that students’ skills in Mathematics and Science require enrichment globally. The SLAM-STEM project pledged to develop students’ capabilities in these areas by modelling good practice.
Project 3: Travel’n’Share: Lower Secondary Schools (2018-2020) Verket School in Norway, partnering with IES Carmen Burgos de Seguí in Spain, Ivanovec School in Croatia, Tarup Skole in Denmark, and The Heritage Private School in Cyprus
As citizens in a future international and multilingual world, Travel’n’Share immersed students in a cultural journey to foster a deeper understanding of their own culture and cultural diversity. By concentrating on language classrooms around Europe, teachers and students exchanged a plethora of teaching methods to evaluate the most effective learning methods.
Project 4: UNESCO Passport: Lower Secondary Schools (2018-2021) Osnovna Skola Hvar in Croatia, partnering with Istituto Comprensivo Cassano Magnago II in Italy, CPR San José in Spain, and The Heritage Private School in Cyprus
UNESCO Passport’s objective was to stimulate an appreciation of European cultural heritage. The current digital era means that young learners are at risk of neglecting our ancestors’ significance, so through innovative practices and a more liberal approach to education, each partner school gave students the chance to discover more historical facts about its UNESCO heritage.
Project 5: Little Explorers: Primary School (2018-2020) Spain partnering with Poland, England and Cyprus
The aim of this programme was to bring the real world into the classroom by having visits from scientists and getting in contact with live expeditions through social networks. In addition, students learned how to work in a multicultural environment.
Project 6: INNOMATH: Secondary School (2019 -2022) Schools from Germany partnering with Cyprus, France, Poland and Romania
This project aimed to support teachers by developing an Electronic Guidebook which would offer teaching guidance and support “gifted” students. Different types of educational institutions collaborated to produce the Electronic Guidebook, thus giving teachers a correct platform to work on.
