THE EUROPEAN ABC "Awareness of Borders to Cross"

April 22, 2018

Welcome to our website Erasmus+ „The European ABC – Awareness of Borders to Cross“

We are students and teachers from high schools in Parabiago/Italy, Bendinat/Spain, Torun/Poland and Syke/Germany. We have done some great international projects in the past, and now we are at the outset of a new project. - „The European ABC“ - „Awareness of Borders to Cross“. We will not only meet new friends in Europe but also learn about the lives, hopes and fears of those young people who are seeking refuge in Europe or live as migrants in our countries. We want to look over our horizon, learn about each other, overcome prejudice and respect each other – and absorb the manifold inspirations we will get from each others' beliefs and values. We want to be active European citizens who believe in democracy, freedom and equality.

The kick off  meeting in Parabiago/Italy at the end September 2016, where directors and teachers from each partner country met to plan the project, gave a great start. Now we are looking forward to travelling to Torun/Poland in March 2017.

Multicultural workshops

On September 14th 2017  our project workshops began. The participants were divided into the three international groups to work on a performance program. The German group prepared the Syrian dance and prepared some basic Arabic phrases to teach. The Polish group conducted a workshop where poems about migrants were created. The Spanish group focused on creating a spectacle for the song “The Sea is crying”. All the participants worked very hard to present the project results as a great performance.

After the  intensive work, the participants of the project went to a dinner party held at school. Everyone had an excellent opportunity to taste delicious Italian cuisines. The dishes were prepared by the Italian students’ parents who also joined the dinner. After lunch there was a special screening of short films for all the guests.
