Communicating through Art

Our school has started a new Comenius project. Its title is „Communicating through Art” .Our partners are in Spain, Scotland, Romania and Turkey. The main topic of the project is art. Pupils get to know artists from partner countries and do activities related to these artists.Each pupil has got a penpal to whom he writes emails. They exchange information not only about everyday life, hobbies etc, but also about the topic of the project. The project is aimed to develop skills in using new information technology, to motivate pupils to learn English and familiarize them with artistic heritage of partner countries

Another third Comenius project meeting

Another third Comenius project meeting entitled „Communication through Art” took place in Scotland on 21 – 25 October 2010. The countries of cooperating representatives were the following: Poland, Turkey, Romania and Catalonia.

The vice head teacher Ewa Migas as well as Alicja Bargieł, Małgorzata Zawartka and Tomasz Podsiadło visited Saint Barbara’s Primary School in Muirhead.

The aim of the meeting was to summarise the assigned tasks, exchange experiences based on the subject of the project, discuss and put the work schedule into effect for the present term, update the list of students’ names as well as familiarising themselves with the Scottish educational system.

All the countries involved in the project were given a warm reception by the pupils, their parents’ and both head teacher and teachers. Moreover they were introduced to the local authorities. They also visited Glasgow and Edinburgh and paid a visit to the Scottish Parliament.

A glimpse of Scottish music and dance organised by all the people connected with Saint Barbara’s Primary School created an unforgettable impression.
