This school year, our school has started to participate in the Erasmus+ KA2 project under the title Connected with the Environment. It is a collaborative effort with schools from Croatia, Austria, Greece and also Poland, the project’s coordinator. Over the course of two years, we will join forces, ideas, experience and try to reduce noise pollution in everyday life, with the awareness that it is becoming an increasing problem of our time.  

The project is grounded in ecological principles. Each country will showcase 4 Modules and show how the environment influences interaction  between history and culture, interpersonal relationships, technology and ecology.

Along with the main goal of the project, meeting European nations and their cultures, developing ICT skills, brushing up on English and getting acquainted with different school systems and methodologies is also a big part of the collaboration.

The  project’s duration is two years, from 1st September 2017 to 31st August 2019. The project highlights research work and teacher and student mobility in education.

Our first project meeting was held on 18th – 20th October 2017, where all participants agreed on the details of the First Module.

We are leaving for Poland, Lubin on 19th March, where students of the national and international department will present Slovenia, our school, their life, our school system, important milestones in Slovenia’s history, and our literary heroes, legends and myths. We are looking forward to it!
