The meetings between the pupils of two first years of the secondary school of I.O. Pestalozzi (lead school) and their « colleagues » from four schools in four European countries – Lithuania, the Netherlands, Romania and Turkey – participating in the Erasmus Plus Project « Let’s Explore our Cultural Heritage with Technology and Art » have just ended.
This KA2 project foresees four mobilities, which for obvious reasons are currently suspended, of small groups of 6 students, accompanied by 2 teachers, over a period of 24 months.
During these short virtual tours in three of the five countries involved, the first stop was « our beautiful Sicily ». The meeting was coordinated by the Headmaster, prof. ssa Elena Di Blasi, who is making internationalization one of the bulwarks of her management and teaching activities: « I started working on Erasmus Plus, together with the partner schools, in the middle of the Lockdown – says the headmistress – a year ago, despite all the concerns, I took on the coordination of the application for this project. A seed planted in the « middle of winter » is timidly beginning to appear on the fringes of this spring: a small taste of what we all hope will once again become a real journey. Stay tuned! »
