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!”
