Freedom to Learn 2

We are incredibly pleased to announce that our KA229 Erasmus+ project “Freedom to Learn 2” has been approved. But what is the big deal and what is Freedom to Learn 2 about?

Our school is seriously committed to provide the best possible educational experience to our students. A lot of work goes into this, very often behind the scenes and out of the public’s eye. Just before schools closed due to the pandemic, we submitted an application for another Erasmus+ project. An application for an E+ project entails a meticulous labour of determination, bringing a group of people together and detailing every aspect of the project. Suffice to say that the application for Freedom to Learn 2 is almost 200 pages worth of work! So, for once, we would like to busk in our success and share the news with our community.

This new project builds on the success of our flagship E+ project “Freedom to Learn”. It is based on the notion that for significant
learning to occur, this needs to be based on personal involvement and be meaningful for the learner. The results and impact of this project have been exceeding expectations. Not even COVID-19 managed to stop us.

This new project will address the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the methodology advocated by Carl Roger’s philosophy, giving students the freedom to explore and truly engage with the SDGs. It also aims to support the development of students’ digital competences through the use of the eTwinning platform, with an emphasis on their responsibility as online content creators rather than mere consumers.

The project will be divided into 4 phases, each phase lasting for half a scholastic year. Each project phase will see the teachers in the different schools addressing different SDGs with their students through the Freedom to Learn methodology to address all the SDGs over the project’s lifespan. Each project phase will start off with an exploration of the SDG being researched. Students will then be supported to identify a focus, to create an action plan, research the topic, present their findings and finally evaluate their own learning and achievement. At the end of each phase, the students will also need to present their work through eTwinning across the partner schools.

We are very much looking forward to embark on this new adventure with our old and new partner schools:

We are absolutely positive that this project will be another resounding success. Bring it on!

Parents whose children are not in these year groups but still need uniform items, can buy the new uniform. However, if the old tracksuit still fits, then this is perfectly fine.
