Successful 1st visit to our partner school in Italy.

25th Apr 2017

In April, Mrs Kane and Mrs Mc Ardle had the wonderful opportunity to visit our Italian partner school Istituto Comprensivo Centrostorico in Moncalieri, Italy. This was our first Teaching and Learning Activity as part of our Erasmus+ project @Museart, with our 8 European partner schools!  Teaching and Learning Activities are a core part of the Erasmus+ programme and allow teachers involved to share cultural knowledge, innovative teaching methodologies and exchange excellent practices with other countries.  During their visit to Italy, our staff had the opportunity to sample the local culture, and take an active role in the life of the school.  They worked with a range of age groups ranging from nursery to secondary level.  Staff were also involved in team teaching activities with our European partner schools and had opportunities to observe and share valuable teaching and learning practices.  Following this visit, Mrs Mc Ardle and Mrs Kane have disseminated their invaluable experience with our teaching staff and no doubt this will enhance our school's continuing professional development.  We look forward to our next Teaching and Learning Activity which will be hosted by our partner school in Bulgaria in late May.
