A Malaga secondary school played host to students and teachers from five other EU countries last week on the third leg of an Erasmus+ strategic partnership project.
Over two years IES Huelin is taking part in a programme entitled ‘Improving the Teaching-Learning Process at an Entrepreneurial and Sustainable Establishment’ along with secondary schools in Truro, England; Achim, Germany; Tampere, Finland; Palermo, Italy and Gorowo in Poland.
The first visit of the programme was to Germany in November 2015 and earlier this year representatives met up in Finland. Before the end of the programme each school will have hosted the others.
In Malaga the visitors and hosts took part in meetings, class observations, talks and workshops related to school diversity, discipline as well as finding out more about the Time Bank and how to implement it in schools.
Each school showed the production plan, statutes and formalities of their mini company, one of the projects for the two year period.
Educational visits
The students went on trips to the hydroelectric plant in El Chorro, the Sierra de las Aguas wind farm in Carratraca as well as visiting El Torcal in Antequera.
The budding entrepreneurs also had the chance to view the Promálaga UrbanLab facilities in the Tabacalera building.
Kim Funke from Germany described the visit as “a great experience”, adding that the Erasmus project “is a great opportunity for students from different countries to get to know each other and share in different lifestyles and languages.”
British student Tabitha Munro added, “It’s been an intense week. There was always something to do. The beach was the best bit.”source surinenglish
