Merry Christmas and happy winter holidays


Year 2017 is coming to an end and with it, we have been enjoying our adventure Erasmus 14 months. Months full of emotions, remembrances, effort, hard work, journeys and so many wonderful people warmly installed in our lives forever. The summary of this year is highly positive: we have travelled together, teachers and students, and we have got to know one another much better, we have improved our English and this experience has helped us to know more about our neighbour country: Portugal. We have learnt how to travel, how not to get lost, how to help one another, what it feels like when you are away from home, when you feel lonely and how to behave in all kind of situations. Our experience has been meaningful and enriching because we have got over our prejudices and complexes, because we have tasted wonderful food and seen breath-taking landscapes, because we have learnt another languages and heard unforgettable sounds and music. And above all, this year has been intense and rich because we have become stronger, wiser and more experienced, because we have felt part of a warm, friendly , open-minded and welcoming humanity.

Happy Christmas and looking forward to our next Erasmus year 2018

INTERNATIONAL MEETING IN BRAGA 9-13 OCTOBER

From the 9th to the 15th of October , our second teaching/learning Erasmus activity was held in the Portuguese city of Braga. The Spanish participants were two teachers and 6 students. In this meeting we had the opportunity to attend several motivating and challenging activities such as getting to know better the Portuguese educative system, language, music , culture and gastronomy.
There has been time and space for lectures, students´presentations on attention to students´with disabilities and special educative needs, we have visited several associations which deal with physical and mental handicapped people and victims of gender violence. Morover, interesting and exciting cultural visits were organized such as a trip to Guimaraes and Porto and of course, we had several workshops to follow the development of our project together with class observation in the Portuguese High School. Here is the minutes of a wonderful experience written by our students.

OUR FIRST WEEKEND IN PORTUGAL ( 7TH-8TH OF OCTOBER)
Well, this experience started on Saturday when we took our airplane at 8.15 a.m., so we had to be there at 7.15 a.m. We all were excited and really happy (and, to be honest, tired at that hour). We arrived to Madrid and we divided us in two groups because one flight was leaving before the other. So, the other group whose flight left after had the oppotunity to visit the Bernabeu, where a lots of important football match are played. We took the flight and we arrived to Porto at almost lunch time, so we were exploring the city a little bit just when we had already left our bags and suitcases, and after that we ate in a traditional and small restaurant where the lunch was great. Afther that, we were making time visiting the centre and its shops while the other group
was arriving. When they came, we all went to the apartament again. It was really cool, with 3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms, 1 kitchen and 1 living room. There, we had a shower and decided where we would sleep. Then, we went out and ate in a wonderful place: the port in the river. The view fascitaned all of us. We wanted to stay in Porto for all the trip! After that, teachers allowed us to go out more time: at 1 a.m. in the apartament. So, with our happiness´s faces, we went out. We were exploring the roads for five minutes when we found two nice Portuguese girs, and we ask them where to go. They came with us to a pub, when we could dance and drink some refreshments. We arrived home punctual, and we ate some ice-cream in front of the TV. The morning after, we visited again the river, but the view was completely different with the sun´s shine. We ate in Mc Donald´s and we took the train at 5 p.m. So, at 6 p.m. we were already in Braga. Families were waiting for us in the train station and the real experience had started.

NEXT MEETING IN PORTUGAL

Next Saturday 8th of October, a group of 6 Erasmus students : Armando Aibar, Claudia Liñán, Laura Peláez, Liliem Mohammed, Fahd Hamed, Mónica Barceló and 2 teachers: Tatiana Benet and Ana Carmona, will be heading for Braga ( Portugal) till the 14th of October.
This is our first learning/ teaching/ forming activity for us  and we are really excited about it.
During this week we have accomplished 3 tasks: we have made a video for the European day of Languages, we have interviwed a deaf student and her teacher (since the main topic of this visit is integration of students with special abilities) and we have designed a power point presentation about how these students receive support classes in our center. Likewise, we have recorded a video where we show the obstacles and disadvantages that people with physical disabilities or different abilities find in our city.
In our week in Braga, we will be hosted by Portuguese students ( some of them we ourselves hosted in Melilla last April ) and we will enjoy a wide variety of activities: sports, presentations, debates, IT workshops , activities together with SSN ( students with special needs ) and we will have the opportunity to show our in-between visits assignments.
Besides , we will be able to visit the magical city of Porto, Guimaraes and Braga.
We will tell you our experiences just after coming back..so please, keep in touch and see you very soon in this blog.

INTERNATIONAL MEETING IN MELILLA 24-28 APRIL


Our partners are already here! We had been looking forward to this moment for so long  from the meeting in Caserta that  the months had gone too quickly

Months of preparations, programming, designing, mails, phone calls , adjusting time-tables, meetings and constant social networks checking. But at the end, we had succeeded  to fit all the programmed activities into the right schedule for teachers and students and what it is most important, the matching of the students seemed to go perfectly fine: students were happy with their mates and their communication was frequent and  fluent.

We wanted to make all kinds of Stage Arts the theme around which all the lectures and activities were to be designed and programmed: Drama, Music, Performances, Corporal expression , Dance would be the topics to reflect upon, integration and fight against discrimination in  the most vulnerable and underpriviledged social groups in our communities ; Art as the universal means of communicating anger, frustration, desperation, loneliness but also, solidarity, empathy and hope. And side by side with all kinds of artistic and cultural expressions, we have focused on Gastronomy as a deep, instinctive, genuine and most representative means of cultural identity for all the people.

Having all of this in mind, we have tried to contact lecturers, teachers and experts who work with students in risk of social exclusion and with special educative needs, students with migrant background , unaccompanied minors , refugees and they have taught us how music, dance, corporal expression, singing, performances , paintings and photographs are valuable and rich resources to raise our students´ awareness about the terrible situations of unfairness, intolerance, prejudice, hate, fear and ignorance surrounding us in our daily lives.  Moreover, we wanted to highlight our own students´ artistic capacities to find out through their vision, imagination and sensitiveness what they feel and think about the topics of our project: unprejudiced minds willing to collaborate to make a better society.
