During the Erasmus + HAPPENS Festival in ZSG No. 2, students, parents, teachers and school staff gathered on 9 and 10 June 2017 to spend time together to celebrate the end of the Erasmus + HAPPENS project. We encouraged everyone to do sports and healthy eating. We engaged students of all grades, especially those who were marginalized and had a learning disability, as well as parents, teachers and school staff to prepare and take part in the event. All sorts of attractions, such as traditional games from different countries, volleyball match: adults vs. youth, sports competition with a smile, colorful stands with delicious food. “Flavors of the World” offered dishes from different countries, participants could taste some products of “Sirt food” diet, everyone admired our students dancing Zumba and other artistic dances. Students also presented a show of traditional dances from Erasmus + partner countries. Our students also presented their artistic programs devoted to a healthy lifestyle. Among the guests the mayor and local authorities were also presented.
During Erasmus plus days, our students and teaching staff had the opportunity to express their views on the benefits that Erasmus + Happens project has given them over the last two years. They wrote their opinions on the star sheets.
The students of 3rd grade together with some teachers took part in a mountain trek during which they could admire the beautiful views and wonderful greenery of the trees, as well as fresh mountain air. They also had the opportunity to ride a horse-drawn carriage ride in the beautiful scenery of the mountain landscape.
The students of 6th grade and some staff of our school took part in a walking tour along the cliff and then on the beach. They spent a fantastic time collecting shells, pebbles, playing games and breathing in healthy sea air.
Our final task completing the Erasmus + Happens project was to collect parents’ students and staff views of the project. We asked students and parents to write their opinion on paper shells so that the Erasmus board received a summer touch as well.
During the Erasmus week at Martinet school we prepared an exhibition to show most of the exchanged activities and work we have done with other partners. We also prepared some evaluation stars where students, teachers and families could write what they liked most and have learnt with the Erasmus Project at our school. There are very interesting comments!!
The students of 4th and 5th grade of our school took part in art therapy where they expressed their feelings, emotions while listening to music. The students using paint and paper reflected the images caused by the music. They found this activity very relaxing and calming.
We also engaged the students with learning disabilities and those systematically leaving the lessons for art workshops with wood carvings, where they also had the opportunity to spend some wonderful time outdoors playing different games.
Two weeks ago Primary 6 classes from Escola Martinet went for a walk in nature. They visited Garraf Natural Parc where they had the opportunity to discover local flora and fauna. We had a great time!
Teachers and assistants from Martinet school enjoyed a day in the nature. We walk for a long time until we got to a lake, it was a pity we didn’t have time for a swim… weather was really hot. After the walk we enjoyed a healthy picnic!!! We have just decided that next walk will take us to the beach!!
