Zoe's Impressions from Italy

    We left from E. Venizelos airport at 7 o’clock (really early in the morning). We arrived at Fumiccino airport in Italy. Then we took a taxi from the airport and we went to Rome. We were walking around in Rome, visiting several places until it was the time to take the bus for going in Chieti. We were really excited when we met our families for the first time.
    Thursday was our first day at school and we met a lot of students there and made new friends. At school the teachers separate us into three groups, drama, music and art. The activities at school were very enjoyable and funny. In the evenings we had a great time with the children; lot’s of parties and fun. On Sunday we had a really awful trip up the mountains and we returned exhausted. Suddenly we had to leave from Chieti on Tuesday 8 May. But we left with such wonderful memories in our minds that we will never forget. We feel very lucky attending in the Comenius meeting in Chieti and we will love to participate in another meeting in the future

Survey Results from SPAIN

Poetry Contest - Results - Winners

One of the project's aim is to make the educative community aware of the importance of human rights by using music, language and arts and to respect and defend those rights so as to become constructively critical European citizens.

Not only language helps bridging the gap to understanding and cooperation but also music and art as non-verbal means of communication play an important part in our project. Applied in lyrics, poems, songs, videos or drawings the aesthetic dimension help to see beyond the pure communicative purpose. 

Preparing their participation in Chieti meeting, the last of the 1st year's project implementation, the students from all countries, besides all, concentrated on a new activity; Poetry.

They were encouraged to create poems, energizing their minds and spirits through immersion in a creative and intellectual journey; and building the momentum to carry us away into an ongoing experience.

The period of poem-writing started after the 2nd Comenius Meeting in Limassol, on March 10th 2012, and continued into the spring school holidays, which  ended on April 25th. More than 35 poems took part to the competition.

All pedagogical teams from the 9 partner-schools decided upon the best poem of their school, which participated to the final phase of the Poetry Competition. All the other poems were shared for paintings or illustrations. 

All young students explored their creative potential and discovered new approaches to learn and disseminate knowledge on the Human Rights, showing their artistic talents through poetry and the arts.

Juries from all schools voted by e-mail the 3 best poems. All poems of the competition  were interpreted during a specific ceremony during the 3rd Comenius project Meeting in Chieti on Saturday, May 5th, 2012.

The winners of the Poetry Contest are:

1st prize
poem:We Are Equal
creator: Aleth Martí Saumell
from Spain (G)

2nd prize:
 poem: I Wish
creator: Giada Cavallo
from  Chieti, Italy (D)
