The co-coordinators from Germany gave some important information about things that all partners should think of before leaving for the Czech Rep.:

Certificate of attendance for teachers and pupils,

Material for the students about the project

    Declaration of Human Rights, Charter of EU, 

    Project management booklet for beginners like the material at  http://qas.programkontoret.se.,  

      Financial administration of the project.

      Other important subject seemed to be found a common communication platform . Some teachers could help the other colleagues who are not very skilled in ICT, presenting new technology tools.

      The third topic was the questionnaire for the survey on human rights ( what kind of questions, how many questions, which is the content of the questionnaire etc). The forth one is the logo competition and the fifth is the preparations for the next meeting in Cyprus.

      Let's introduce ourselves!

      in Nea Filadelfeia / Athens - Greece

       3rd Upper Secondary School of Nea Philadelphia “Miltos Kountouras” has been named after the Athens suburb Nea Philadelphia, where it is located, as well as after the well-known Greek pedagogue Miltos Kountouras.
      Our local area, Nea Philadelphia – Nea Chalcidona, is inhabited by about 25.000 people. Nea Philadelphia (or Filadelfia) owes its name to the ancient town ‘Philadelpheia’ in Asia Minor where the first inhabitants of Nea Philadelphia came from as fugitives after the destruction of Smyrna (Izmir) in 1922.

      Miltos Kountouras (1889-1940) fought for the liberalization of education. His principles are reflected in the demand for free choice of school textbooks, respect to the teacher and the peculiarities of each school environment and each student and, above all, in the emphasis on the pedagogical role of school.

      The curriculum for each General Upper Secondary School includes general education subjects (modern and ancient Greek language and literature, history, mathematics, sciences, religion, technology, social sciences, physical education, a foreign language (mainly English or French)). As well as elective and specialization subjects: Computer Science, Psychology, Economics, Environment, etc…
       Also, our students take part in theatre performances, sporting events, festivities and festivals very successfully.


      Our school (GREECE)
      Our school is located in a central district near the heart of Athens. However, it is a quiet neighborhood which looks like a suburb. Most inhabitants were born and raised here to families of Asia-Minor Greek refugees, who flew back to Greece after the holocaust in Izmir 1922. The majority of our students are third generation immigrants but they cannot be considered disadvantaged because their grandparents were well integrated in and highly respected by the host population. 

      Those students who might be at risk of social exclusion are:
      • about one-third of our students who are second generation immigrants from Albania, Romania, Russia
      • about 2% of our students who have been diagnosed as suffering from learning disabilities plus an undefinable number of them who - in our opinion, not confirmed by experts- might be suffering from the attention deficit, hyperactivity and/or oppositional defiant behavior syndrome
      • about 1% of our students who systematically play truant due to personal and/or family problems
      • about five students (out of 250) who have experienced school bullying
      • Additionally, it must be noted that every year about 10 students of our school move to a neighbouring professional-technical school (similar to Realschule) because they are weak and/or unmotivated students.

      The objectives and our aim with this project is to encourage these endangered students to go on with school and pursue further studies by stressing examples of teenagers who were outsiders but turned out very successful only because school life or syllabus provided them with some stimulation and motivation. Of course, we also aim at sensitizing all the other students to help create an inclusive school atmosphere.

      Our role in the project is the IT coordination together with the school in Nettuno (Italy). The Greek and the Italian school from Nettuno will coordinate ICT activities (such us the realization of an e-book, a blog and a multimedia map of Europe)....

      Invitation - Timetable

      1st Project Meeting in Celakovice

      The first official invitation came from Gymnázium of Čelákovice in Czech Republic to all partners to participate in the 1st Project Meeting from 29/9/2011 to 5/10/2011.

      Our preparations has begun. The time is not enough. We had to rush!!!

      Čelákovice is a town, situated on Labe (Elbe) river, approx. 20 km distant from capital Prague. From times immemorial, this town is known as King’s town.
      From railway station, you walk along rather busy street. However, modern history added this small town big portion of dust, noise, many vehicles and also inhabitants. Total population number in quarters, such as Čelákovice, Sedlčánky, Záluží and Císařská Kuchyně - i.e. the communities which form the town, makes nearly 11 thousands people.
      Since time period, when there was built in Čelákovice the first wooden fortificated seat, the town spreaded in numerous crowd of houses, and, after a war, dwelling houses, built during Communist era. Nevertheless, these building could be, from tourist point of view, more interesting in the future.

      How to get to Čelákovice (by Barbora)

      When you arrive at the airport and pick up your luggage, you will need to take a bus from outside the terminal. You will see the bus signs. You will need to buy a ticket for the public transport. Buy a 46 CZK ticket that is valid for 150 mins and that should be enough for all public transport within Prague, as well as the train to Celakovice. You can buy this ticket from the machine that should be at the bus stop. You will need to change some money in order to buy the tickets. So, this you can do at the airport. There are several CHANGE shops at the airport. Just choose the one with the lowest commission. Don't change all your money, just enough to buy your tickets. We can change the rest later at a better foreign exchange at Celakovice. 

      On the bus, your final destination is the last stop, Dejvice. This is an underground stop. You will take this underground going in the direction of Depo Hostivar. You will get off at the 4th stop, Mustek. Here, you will transfer to the yellow line B, going in the direction of Cerny Most. You will get off after 1 stop, at Namesti Republiky. Then, just follow the signs leading you to Masarykovo Nadrazi and you will then get on the relevant train.

      The train times and stops should be shown on the screen. The relevant train will go in the direction of either Milovice, Nymburk or Kolin. If you are uncertain, just ask anyone if this train goes to Celakovice. The train goes every half an hour at either 24mins past that hour or 54 mins past that hour. 

      Have a nice trip!

      Getting started

      Όλα ξεκίνησαν τη περσινή σχολική χρονιά (2010-11). H κ. Anna Curto Naffissi και ο κ. Holger Schmidt από το Kurt-Schumacher-Schule στο Karben/Germany μας προσκάλεσε να συμμετέχουμε σε μια συνεργασία μεταξύ ευρωπαϊκών σχολείων προκειμένου να δουλέψουμε μαζί στο έργο
      “Human Rights in Europe between Ideal and Reality; Rights and Challenge for Students in the 21st Century by means of Poetry, Arts and Music”.

      Οι στόχοι ήσαν κοινοί:
      • Βελτίωση της μητρικής και της αγγλικής γλώσσας και απόκτηση όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερων δεξιοτήτων στη χρήση εργαλείων Πληροφορικής και Επικοινωνιών.  
      • Ευαισθητοποίηση των μαθητών σε σχέση με τον κοινωνικό αποκλεισμό ως παραβίαση των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων.
      • Γνωριμία με τραγούδια και ποιήματα για την ελευθερία, την ισότητα και την αλληλεγγύη μέσα από την ελληνική και ευρωπαϊκή κουλτούρα.
      • Ανάπτυξη υπευθυνότητας και πολιτικής ευθύνης.
      • Συνειδητοποίηση ότι μόνο οι κοινές, διεθνείς προσπάθειες της προάσπισης των αμοιβαίων δικαιωμάτων και αξιών είναι κατάλληλα για τη διατήρηση μιας φιλελεύθερης Ευρωπαϊκής Κοινότητας.

      Η αίτηση υπεβλήθη το Φεβρουάριο του 2011 και τον Ιούλιο του 2011 μας ανακοινώθηκε ότι η πρόταση ενεκρίθη από τη ελληνική επιτροπή Comenius και η συνεργασία μπορoύσε να ξεκινήσει από 1η Αυγούστου. 
      Ο σύλλογος αναγνωρίζοντας την αξία της διασύνδεσης της ελληνικής εκπαιδευτικής πράξης  με το διεθνή περίγυρο, την αναγκαιότητα ενθάρρυνσης της εκμάθησης γλωσσών και προαγωγής της διαπολιτισμικής συνειδητοποίησης, τη ραγδαία εξέλιξη της τεχνολογίας και τις νέες κατευθύνσεις που απαιτούνται για την εκπαίδευση και υιοθετώντας τους στόχους του συγκεκριμένου σχεδίου έκανε ομόφωνα αποδεκτό το παραπάνω πρόγραμμα, έτσι όπως αυτό προσδιορίζεται και περιγράφεται στην υποβληθείσα αίτηση.
      Ανέθεσε δε στην παιδαγωγική ομάδα την υλοποίηση του σχεδίου. Την παιδαγωγική ομάδα αποτελούν ο κ. Αθανάσιος Κιούσης, Διευθυντής του σχολείου και οι καθηγητές – μέλη του Συλλόγου Διδασκόντων κ. Φυσάκη Αικατερίνη, κ. Πάττα Μαρία, κ. Χρυσού Αργυρώ, κ. Φερρίδης Αλέξανδρος, κ. Ταλιαδούρος Κων/νος, κ. Δημητριάδη Ιωάννα, κ. Σαρίκος Μιχαήλ, κ. Μπερναλής Θεοδόσιος, κ. Καραμήτρος Δημήτριος και η κ. Σούμπαση Σταυριάνα. Υπεύθυνη για την εκτέλεση του σχεδίου ορίζεται η καθηγήτρια Πληροφορικής κ. Αικατερίνη Φυσάκη

      All has started in November 2010!
