The CEIP Ciutat de Cremona is a public school located in the Valencian town of Alaquàs, just 5km from the capital city. It has around 30,000 inhabitants and the main economic activity is the second and third sector, such as factories, shops, restaurants, etc. The city is also very close to the International Airport of Valencia (9 Km.) and is perfectly communicated by train and motorway to other important cities such as Madrid and Barcelona. It is a school that was started 12 years ago from the excess of students from another school. Due to this circumstance, the school was built in prefabricated modules where we are currently working pending the completion of the final building planned for the next course. It started as a school that only offered the infant stage until little by little, it was adding courses achieving levels from the infant stage of 2 years to the sixth grade of primary school. Currently, the school has an enrollment of around 400 students, of which a third come from other countries, especially from South America and China. The faculty has a total of 30 members including tutors, specialists and psycho-pedagogical team. In our school we have an equality and coexistence program created by the town council due to the different conflicts that exist in the educational centers related to this topic. It is a reality our current world and it is essential to deal with these conflicts in the school. For this reason, we have decided to undertake this project together with the rest of our colleagues from other countries, in order to work together and learn from each other.

Our main objectives are to share our experiences, to deepen in the resolution of conflicts, to work inside the classrooms to share the activities with the other students of the project, and to learn from the experiences of other countries. Those responsible for carrying out the project will mostly be the coordinator Ismael Reig, and the center director Susana García. They will have a role of information, motivation, and dissemination of all the information regarding the project so that the greatest number of personnel is involved, from the teaching staff, to the students as well as the families, and the City Council itself. In the event of a change of coordinator, the responsibility would be assumed by Enrique Canós, another English teacher who has already been informed and has given his agreement. We are currently finishing another KA2 project, the first carried out in the school, and it has been satisfactory for the whole educational community. For this reason, we are motivated to undertake another new project since we have the support and participation of the vast majority of teachers from our school.

(In Bergamo there is the airport (Orio al Serio) from which depart and arrive many European flights) In the region is predominantly middle class. Good quality transport promotes pendulum movement of students and workers in the cities of Bergamo and Milan and surroundings. The school population consists mainly of local residents who do not have specific problems concerning the socio-economic conditions, immigration is not very present in the valley. Zogno lies at the foot of the Alps Orobiche so close to tourist centers that offer opportunities for ecological tourism in summer and winter. We have already done two Comenius projects one of which will be completed on June 2015.

We are very active in sports. Our students participate in school and interschool competitions in handball, football, table tennis, chess and dancing. We participate in many projects. The school has carried out many activities to raise awareness of the importance topics such as diversity, tolerance and active citizenship. Our school, along with ten others in Croatia, was named “School of Philanthropy”. Our school attends 515 students, out of which 205 are students of the Roma national minority. In addition to differences in nationality and ethical affiliation, there is a marked difference in the socioeconomic status of students, so the topic of accepting diversity is the subject that always gives much attention through projects and activities in our school.

The goal of entering new projects is to involve students in organizing events and projects to develop organizational skills and awareness of the importance of personal activities for the benefit of the local community, Europe and democracy. Through the Erasmus+ project, we see the possibility of presenting our region and work to the wider community, the partner countries. This will be motivating for new projects in school and community. Knowing other cultures and differences between cultures, students and teachers will know how to fight against prejudices and stereotypes. Communication and implementation of the program will improve ICT and language skills of all participants.

We currently teach our children about Gender Equality, Bullying, Immigration and Integration through our Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) Curriculum which provides children with the basic tenets of good citizenship. The project will allow the school to endeavour further into these subjects and ensure that children grow up with the experiences they have learnt. The world is becoming increasingly hostile and common thought surrounding immigration is usually negative. However, children have a right to learn about the benefits that it gives and how the world is further improved as a result.

The key people running this project will be Alamin Miah (MFL Coordinator), Zahra Mamdani (RE Coordinator), Amy Diamond (EYFS Phase Leader) and an appointed PSHCE Coordinator. If any persons leaves the post at the school, the new coordinator will take up the duties as the leadership of the school have expressed that this project is of utmost importance. This project is the first of its kind at MPS so unfortunately, the school do not have any experience in these projects and has no eTwinning Label. But we are really excited to apply for the project and start to involve in Erasmus+ projects.

Zespół Szkolno Przedszkolny w Modlnicy is a complex of two village public schools: Kindergarten (chidren aged from three to five years old) and Primary School (from the first to the eighth grade), administered by the one Head-Master. The School has got also its branch school in nearby Modlniczka Village. Both places are located in the North of Cracow, about 12 km from the city center and 10 km from the International Airport Balice. It is the area of intensive economical investments for developers and investors. Many new private houses and building estates are built as well as offices and galleries with commercial activities that is why the number of inhabitants is constantly growing as well as the number of pupils at school in Modlnica. Presently, the total of all pupils is almost 600. There are 75 members of the teaching staff, including tutors and specialists. The history of school that reaches the XIX century, is full of many educational achievements, teachers’ initiatives and activists closely related with the local community. The first school in Modlnica Village started its activity in 1820 as a parish school. Initially, it was a one story building, with one classroom and one teacher. Since then, the educational changes and social needs caused the transformation of school. The building has been extended and rebuilt. There are modern classrooms equipped in computer facilities, allowing for the use of online teaching tools, a gym, a sports field, a playground and a mini amphitheatre. In addition, the old building of Kindergarten will be replaced by a bigger and modern one in two years time. To school attend a large group of children who have problem with learning because of dyslexia, dysgraphia, speech defects, Asperger’s syndrome or with low intellectual dispositions. The teachers work with those children during regular lessons and the school specialists during additional classes, inventing and realizing individual plans of learning. There is also a group of talented students, who take part in programs building their personal skills and knowledge. The programs are realized after lessons and are for free.

We decided to undertake the project because it is an opportunity to meet other colleagues dealing with similar situations and exchange teaching experience with them during the common workshops, observations or meetings. It is also a possibility of creating a net of international contacts that can be used for longer in the future.

The person responsible for the whole project is the main coordinator Mr. Ismael Reig. The coordinator of the project on the level of school is Mrs. Bronisława Czajowska.
