     POSTERS GALLERY


• ON THE CORRIDORS OF OUR SCHOOL
  THERE IS A POSTER GALLERY
       TEACHERS’
      TESTIMONIALS
HERE ARE A FEW IMPRESSIONS OF THE
     TEACHERS INVOLVED IN THIS
             P0ROJECT
What Benefits I see from this projects?
For the students: talking about themes of interest for their
  age and develop sensitivity for suffering-suffering of the
  others. Also, working in teams for small projects they
  develop interpersonal skills
For the teachers: develop cooperation between them and
  abilities for partnership in the community.
For the school: a sense of being a part of the world that
  transcend the border of our school, our country and
  Europe, a responsible part for finding solution to the
  problems that affect global society.
We are glad to have a chance of being part of the
  communication network about .world problems:
  awareness about consequences of our behavior.
SILVIA TINICA,
Head of Horea School, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
This project seemed to be very interesting from the very
  beginning for both for pupils and for teachers.
Our planet and the environment has suffered a lot of
  changes and destructions during the ages. Everybody
  heard about natural disasters, but we weren’t really
  interested in them. Working in this project is a good
  opportunity to learn more about them, to teach children
  how to avoid them or to try to protect the environment
  and the people as well, and to see what is really going
  on during an earthquake or a flood..
The children really enjoyed the courses about disasters
  and how to avoid them.
The group work on these subjects make them think about
  these problems and find out more and more information,
  and why not a solution in the future!
AGATHA SIRBU, copartner of the project, Horea
  School,Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
As the faculty of the program I was deeply implied in working with
    it. It was a challenge for me and I see it first as a personal gain,
    acquiring and developing my abilities in working within a
    partnership, enlarging my communicative skills as a team
    coordinator with students and my colleagues.
As far as the topic of the program, we have tackled Natural
    Disasters.
It is very important for us to become aware of the problems that
    are peeping on us at every step in our lives and to be prepared
    to handle them in the most appropriate and quickest way
    possible.
It’s a great opportunity for me, my students and my colleagues to
    work together and to enlarge our perspective from a personal
    egocentric point of view towards a panoramic worldwide more
    charitable one.. my problem should become our problems and
    we should never be alone while dealing with natural disasters
    that occur in our lives.
It’s great getting out of the stereotypes of the learning process,
    and combining interesting, important, valuable and useful
    together in one session.
