Un territorio da conoscere e raccontare
Students from Year 7 Faith, Hope and Charity, at St Michael School in Santa Venera, Malta, participated in this project together with students from the Istituto Comprensivo Statale Via Nenni in Torremaggiore, Italy , the 9th High School of Patras and the 3rd High School of Orestiada in Greece.
“To promote their local area, students will have to deal with their peers, get to know different realities from their own and discover common roots.”
Studenti europei uniti nella diversità
Students in the Year 9 Italian group 2 at St Michael School in Santa Venera, Malta, worked on this project with peers from ICS Via Nenni Torremaggiore in Italy, and students from two Greek schools, namely, 9th Junior High School of Patras and 3rd High School of Orestiada.
“The project aims to promote in students the awareness of being active members of a wider community, the European Union, founded on common values such as democracy, solidarity, peace and justice, but also enriched by the diversity and peculiarities of each country.”
Leggende del nostro territorio
Italian students in Year 10 and 11 at St Michael School in Santa Venera, Malta, participated in this project along with Italian students from ICS “Don Lorenzo Milani” Monte Porzio Catone (Rome), ICS 3 di Sora, Istituto Omnicomprensivo di Alvito and the Istituto di Istruzione Superiore di Veroli from the province of Frosinone. Maltese students from St.Augustine College also participated in this project.
“Each territory has its own landscape and a literary, historical-artistic, ethnographic and artisanal tradition that is worth rediscovering and “telling about”. The project therefore proposes to make one’s own territory rediscover, promoting the comparison with different territories. This can be done starting with the legends, and then moving on to the other realities present in the area.”
Corriere dei giovani
Year 11 students of Italian at St Michael School in Santa Venera, Malta, participated in this project along with students from St Augustine College in Pieta, Malta, as well as with students from ICS “Don Lorenzo Milani” di Monte Porzio Catone, Roma and Secondary School students from Władysław Jagiełło in Płock, Poland.
“On taking up the project named “Corriere dei Giovani”, the students are invited to create an eBook with articles based on themes related to values worth acquiring. All the articles, grouped together following a particular theme, are to reflect a precise topic, set every month. Once the articles are read, the students are enabled to work together, creating “blogs” on Twinspace, through which they are eventually required to share all the knowledge acquired from such articles that they have written themselves.”
