First mobility for our European project “Playing Europe” in Murcia, Spain (17-23/10/2021)

During the week 17-23/10/2021 was realized the first mobility of the European project of School Partnerships Erasmus+ KA229 entitled “Playing Europe” (2020-2023), in which our school participates. The mobility was realized in Murcia, Spain, where six students and two teachers of our school, along with a team from Italy and another one from Belgium, travelled.

Greek participating team: Baka Alexandra (C3), Papadimitriou Ioannis-Iason (C3), Koliothomas Christos (Β1), Mascha Nte Filippis Magia Stella (Β3), Papageorgiou Kalliopi (Β3), Sarantopoulou Dimitra (Β3)

Accompanying teachers: Arnaouti Eirini (English teacher, Project contact person), Thodis Georgios (Greek language and literature teacher)

The participants actively participated in the project works, collaborated with members of the teams of Spain, Italy and Belgium, dealt with Spanish traditional games and their educational use and participated in educational visits and cultural activities. They returned in Greece with their luggage full of new knowledge, rich experiences and deep feelings, having experienced the real meaning of the European citizen.

For the project dissemination, the regional television channel of Murcia made reportage about our European project and the Greek teacher Mrs. Arnaouti Eirini talked in the television programme about the project on behalf of the non-Spanish teachers.

Moreover, the Mayor of Murcia received all the project participants in the Town Hall, where the project coordinator Mr. Garcia Garcia Jorge and Mrs. Arnaouti Eirini, on behalf of the non-Spanish teachers, were invited to present the project.
