Erasmus+ project

One of our aims in the school is to teach our pupils ways to communicate with people from other nationalities and cultures and to improve their language skills.

During the school years 2015-16 and 2017-18 our school participated in an international Erasmus+ project with Hermann-von-Helmholtz-Schule from Berlin, Germany and Mehmet Özcan Torunoglu Ortaokulu from Ankara, Turkey. The theme of the project was Water - the source of our lives.

One the one hand we wanted our pupils to learn about water, the way of water usage and the importance of clean water for our lives. Life on earth depends on water. Water is not only used as drinking water, for sanitary purposes and for leisure time activities but also for industrial production of all kinds of goods. Clean water is a limited resource.

On the other hand our aim was to teach our pupils more about the different countries, to improve the English language as a common language of all pupils and to give the chance to learn to respect different ways of living and handling things. All pupils were given the chance to participate in the project by various school activities and the possibility of transnational learning activities. Our school had activities during the school year in different subjects like Geography, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, German, English, Finnish, Physical Education and Art.

The project was funded by the European Commision. The Commission accepts no responsibility for the contents of the publication. CIMO is the national agency for the European Union's education and youth programmes.

We're about to apply for another grant from EU for a new, future occupations and skills -themed Erasmus+ project, which would begin in September 2019. In the project we will cooperate with a school from Estonia, Spain and Italy.
