  COM-1      MY FATHER     When the word of “parents” comes, only mothers           Kindergarden
             IS MY HERO    comes to mind in the first place. But fathers are also
                           important for the success of the children in the ages
                           of 1-5 as well. The children between 1-5 ages are
                           cornerstone of our society and these children will
                           build up our future. In this project the children and
                           their fathers learn how to make good relation
                           among them and through the activity of this project
                           fathers understand that children are the mirror of
                           their parents. The parents will be more careful
                           while raising their child. During the project children
                           are asked about their imagination fathers, the
                           stories about them, and photographs about what
                           they are important for them. Fathers have chance
                           to spend time with their children at least one day in
                           two weeks. In these two years of project, fathers
                           keep in touch with the schools for the success of
                           their children. Even after the project, a special day
                           is going to be organized for fathers and children.
                           This project is implemented by five different
                           countries, Turkey, xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxxxx,
                           and xxxxxxxxxx. In each country 20 children are the
                           beneficiaries of the project.
  COM-       Journey in    The main purpose of the project is by introducing        Kindergarden

                           children to develop the creative imagination, to
                           stimulate their artistic experience and the wish for
                           studying foreign European language.

COM-3   Health is    Children these days spend a lot of time in front of a Kindergarden
        fun -        television - or computer screen (looking at cartoons,
        working on playing computer games); they often eat fast food         (Ada
        a            (which frequently results in obesities) and spend       anaokulu)
        healthpolicy too little time outside. The number of obese
                     beneficiaries nearly doubled from 2005 to 2009 in
                     Europe, and the spending incurred by them almost
                     tripled. Overweight and obesity is also a crisis
                     among children. The number of overweight children
                     aged 6-11 has tripled over the past three decades.
                     With the project ''Health is fun" schools coming
                     from seven countries wish that their youngest
                     children could become aware of the need to live by
                     a healthy lifestyle. Partners want to work this out
                     primarily by stimulating them to do physical
                     (outdoor) activities but also by emphasizing the
                     importance of eating healthy food, having attention
                     for healthy mental activities (live by positive values)
                     and environmental applications (problem of
                     garbage, climate, ...). They want them to create a
                     healthy consciousness. They wish to provide the
                     right information not only to the pupils but also to

                     COMENIUS PROPOSALS FOR 2012

                     all the actors living around them, starting from the
                     families: adequate instructions are necessary for
                     students to learn essential health education
                     knowledge and skills that are developmentally
                     appropriate and useful during all their life.

COM-5   The value of The idea for this project came from observing           Primary
        living green certain realities concerning the degradation of the     School
                     environment. The point of departure for our project

                      COMENIUS PROPOSALS FOR 2012

                       was that all partner countries are confronted with
                       environmental degradation issues. That is why
                       offering environmental education to the young
                       generations is an obligation of every school.
                       Students should be made aware of the importance
                       of having a responsible attitude toward the
                       environment. The partnership will lead to creating
                       Eco-teams made up of students and teachers, that
                       will become active in promoting an environmentally
                       friendly lifestyle. The activities will encourage
                       students to think and act in an environmentally
                       friendly manner. Each participating school will
                       collect statistical data and information concerning
                       the types of ecodegradation present in their
                       respective regions. The Eco-teams will carry out
                       field work, and the photographs taken on these
                       occasions will be used to create collages, posters,
                       PowerPoint. They will also prepare and administer
                       questionnaires in order to identify the types of
                       behaviors adopted by students in each country
                       towards the environment. Then the students,
                       assisted by their teachers, will analyze and interpret
                       the responses and will set up an “Eco(Green)Code”
                       for European citizens. The students will be involved
                       in activities such as: tree planting, greening,
                       landscaping activities around their schools,
                       analyzing water and soil samples in polluted areas,
                       contests on environmental topics, debates and
                       meetings with representatives of local NGOs. The
                       aim of this partnership will only be reached if we
                       manage to offer students not only the information,
                       but also the means and methods they may use in
                       order to become actively involved in the
                       responsible preservation of a healthy environment.
COM-6   To know        The project for multilateral partnership refers to the Primary
        the past,      past, present and the future of our local              School
        understand     communities in the aspect of history, social
        the present    problems and ecology. Our goals such as: exploring
        and shape      the richness of European heritage, diagnosing the
        the future.    problems of youth, arousing ecological
                       consciousness and promoting our local
                       communities will be obtained in three stages:

                       I. “To know the past” – the schools will implement
                       research into the past of their communities, most
                       important events, significant people and collect

                     COMENIUS PROPOSALS FOR 2012

                      material in the form of maps, paintings,
                      photographs, excerpts from the city archives etc. All
                      the materials collected are then sent to the partner
                      schools where the students conduct further
                      research, compare historical facts, look for
                      similarities and the exceptional experience their
                      partners' culture emerged from.

                      II. “To understand the present” - the students will
                      diagnose different aspects of life of young people in
                      their communities by means of questionnaires,
                      make research into voluntary organizations and
                      charity actions organized in their regions. The
                      students will take part in the Youth City Council
                      session and discuss their findings with the local

                      III. “To shape the future”- the final part of the
                      project teaches young people responsibility for the
                      future of their local communities. The students
                      analyze the condition of their natural environments,
                      become familiar with how the institutions
                      responsible for environmental protection function
                      such as: a sewage or water purification plants,
                      examine potable water springs, document habitats
                      of rare plants taking cycling tours.

                      institutions and authorities, who will benefit from
                      the experience acquired. This will also help to
                      shaping a positive attitude of the society towards
                      this marginalized group. The end product will be a
                      bilingual manual of good practices, in English and in
                      each partner’s language, published on paper and on
                      the web sites of each participating school.
                      The participating institutions will use the modern
                      techniques of communication for keeping in contact
                      in order to develop the project activities.
COM-9   Safe World    A Safe World will be a multi-art form project using      Secondary
                      artistic and theatrical media to explore the theme       School /
                      of child safety. We believe all children have the        Primary
                      right to feel personally safe and want to help           School
                      children to recognise the feelings they should
                      associate with danger and safety and the links from
                      this to feeling both safe and unsafe. These feelings
                      of safety are basic in all and can act as barriers to
                      learning causing children to withdraw and become
                      less involved not participating in healthy and active
                      pursuits not only education but life as a whole.

                      We will explore these emotions and feelings, giving

                    the children an understanding of the benefits of
                    safety and how an individual can by being aware to
                    situations, help them negotiate safely through their
                    life. This will be done through the medium of self
                    expressive art music and drama.

                    We will look at this in a European context
                    comparing and contrasting examples of incidents
                    and events in each of our partners area, discussing
                    themes around similar issues that effect our
                    children. We will use this to bring the children
                    together through a common cause of helping one
                    another to overcome issues pertinent to them on
                    safety and supporting each other. This will be done
                    through the dissemination of their combined
                    experience using the medium of web conference,
                    blog and visit information, providing our children
                    with a European wide support network to discuss
                    their feelings of safety.
                    This project will offer an opportunity to share
                    language development and experiences of and
                    approaches to child safety amongst other European
                    Education groups providing a pedagogical approach
                    by our teachers to look at best practice in this field
                    through a European context but supporting the
                    curriculum and objectives of promoting safety.
