Complementary and Extracurricular activities > ERASMUS+

Throughout the years of 2016 and 2018, our school will have the pleasure to become part of the international and prestigious European project called Erasmus+.  Under the Stragegic International Associations we are going to work towards common interests which allow our participants (students, parents and professors) to collaborate for two years in order to introduce innovating ideas and new ways of cooperation.  

In our project, called MASENI (MAnaging Schools' ENvironmental Impacts) we are collaborating with four distinct corners of Europe with three European schools in Germany, Denmark, and Estonia in order to see what environmental impact our schools have and how we are able to reduce our own waste.  In this way we want to favor the action and personal implication of all the participants (students, parents and professors) of our schools in order to achieve the general objective of the project: change the habits towards responsable consumption and the protection of the environment at a local, national and international level.  Our project is completely oriented by the students.  They are the ones who (with structure and well planning) decide, act, and collaborate and take responsablity, organize, are active, creative, and mutually inspire and are enriched with the goal of learning in a an adequate way from a dinstinct corner of Europe and have the power to change and improve.

Throughout the MASENI project we are going to increase our knowledge and competitions about the topics such as science (water, paper, plastic, compost, electricity...), mathematics (schemes, estimations, evaluations, percentages...), foreign languages (use of English, German and Spanish in collaboration with other students from Spain, Germany, Denmark and Estonia), Global Education and Intercultural aspects (visits to countries where the project is implemented and collaboration the classroom) and TIC (use of Web 2.0 tools, programming,...).  Each center will collaborate with other schools, scientific institutions, universities, and city councils, NGOs that are involved in the environment in order to help them know that protecting the environment is the responable of each of us and that in CIG we are concious of it and reflect it in our classrooms.  

Throughout the international meetings, our students from Secondary school will present the investigations and the conclusions at the same time that they will be learning and deepening their understanding about topics related to trips to Vestfyn Gymnasium (Denmark, March 2017, topic: water),  Albert-Einstein Gymnasium (Germany, March 2018, topic: energy) and Sauga Pohikool (Estonia, June 2018, topic: paper).  We at CIG will take on the role of "hosts" in May, 2017 and will be working the topic of plastic and compost with our foreign classmates.

Winners of the Logo at CIG  

The students from 1st and 2nd of ESO worked in art class in order to elaborate the prototype for the logo of our International Project (MASENI). Each student had the same requirements: the logo must contain the theme about protecting the environment, the names of the four countries that are involved with the project and the name MASENI.  Congratulations to all of the students, their logos are inspirational, innovating and original!  However, as always, we had to choose only three of the best in order to bring them to the meeting in Hameln where the professors there could choose the one MASENI logo out of all of the best logos from Spain, Germany, Denmark and Estonia.  The winners of the best logos at CIG were Ana de la Torre Roldán (1ºESO), Alicia Navalón (1ºESO) and María Marín Romero (2ºESO).  They were chosen by all of the students from CIG as well as the professors; one person, one vote.   Congratulations to everyone!

Meeting in Hameln with professors

From the 1st to the 4th of November of 2016, our professors (Catherine Walkley and Jitka Cerna) who are coordinators of the Erasmus + project at CIG, went to the first meeting for MESENI at the Albert Einstein Gymnasium in Hameln, Germany.  The objective of this meeting was to plan in detail the first year of the project, agree on the planning for the first phase of activities and look for better strategies for communicating between all the students.

It was a really productive meeting.  We are really lucky to be able to collaborate with innovative school centers that are motivated and focused on the progress of their students.  We are really looking forward to working together!

International Logo Winner

At the first meeting for the MASENI project in Hameln, Germany, all of the professors looked at the 12 logos (the best three from the four schools that are involved with the project) and voted for the best logo that would be used next to the European Union logo and each school's own logo throughout the MASENI project from 2016 to 2018.  Here at CIG we are very proud to announce that the winner of the logo is our very own student: Ana de la Torre Roldán (1º ESO).  Congratulations to Ana and the Art professor-with her help, Ana was able to elaborate the logo with great success!

MASENI Questionnaire

Before we start to measure how many resourcs and the amount that we are using and or wasting at our school (paper, water, electricity, plastic and compost), we have created a questionnaire for all of the participants of the project: the students, parents and professors (wokers) at the school to fill in.  With this questionnaire we are interested in knowing if poeple recycle the same amount in their house as they do in school; and if that is so, they should report it in detail how they are doing it and how they think they could improve it and do more.  In this way and before we start to make any decisions towards improving our protection of our environment, we know how the students are connected with recycling at home and at school and we will know what to observe throughout the project, which also includes the changes of the attitudes of the participants. There were a total of 191 participants!

Big Measuring Day!

On the 30th of November, 2016 was the BIG MEASURING DAY at CIG.  The students of 1st and 2nd of ESO, under the supervision of their Science professor, investigated which were the resources that are used in ths school (water, paper, plastic, food and electricity), from where they come from and where and how they are used and or wasted at the school.  They created mechanisms to help measure these resources throughout a certain amount of time.  First, they prepared a presentation with a clear and concise explanation so that all of the students understood why and how they were going to go about measuring, later they organized the day with tests in order to varify that all methods of measuring were going to produce accurate results.  Finally, they went to supervise all of the processes throughout this important day of measuring.  Each student, as well as the parents and professors were invited to estimate the quantities of each material we use at our school and write it on the MASENI board in the school hall.  The results will be announced in January 2017.

Letter to the city hall of Dilar

The students from third and fourth grade of primary school, along with their English and Spanish teachers created a letter which they sent to the Dilar City Hall.  They figured out that one of the key elements for recycling was having containers for paper, plastic, and glass at our school.  As this decision depends on the City Hall, each student wrote a letter in order to apply for the rights to having a container.  They also invited those who are responsable for this matter at the City Hall to come to our school and talk to us about the process of recycling that affects us.  We are awaiting their response and are hoping that this can be the first encounter of a long term collaboration with the objective of reducing the waste on our environment of our school as well as our town. 

First International Meeting at Losestfyns, Gymnasium, Denmark

During the last week of March, 2017, students and professors represented the International School of Granada at the first multicultural meeting of the Erasmus + MASENI project, celebrated in the Danish school, in the Vestfyns Gymnasium.  The main topic of this meeting was about water and they did scientific activities such as the analysis of water from different schools, visits to a water treatment plant in Odense, and displayed the work that has been done at each school.  At the different meetings, they used English as the common language, even though the students at CIG took this opportunity to also practice German with the students from Hameln, Germany.  The Spanish students were very confident and open, which was congratulated by the Danish professors.  This experience was very positive and created ties of friendship between the students and professors from the different countries.

The next international meeting will take place at Colegio Internacional de Granada next May.
