Getting to Know us

etwinningWith this suggestive title our students from 1st., 2nd. And 3rd. CSE started an Etwining European Project (within Comenius, the EU programme for school education) on 8th. October 2012. The main aim of the project has been to enhance communication among students from different countries on topics they were interested in, such as introducing me, personality, likes and dislikes, our place, hobbies, pets,  sic, fashion, culture, maths, physics, sports and so on. From the beginning we had the clear intention of creating an e-magazine on mentioned topics, which reflected the enourmous work our student have done. We believed this could be an imaginative and interesting implementation of the subject “English language”.

The founders were St. Joachima de Vedruna of Cartagena and Szkoła Podstawowa w Iwięcinie im. Aleksandra Doby , Poland.  Later, some other partners joined us as follows:

  • 2nd. Junior High School of Kalymnos, Dodecanese, Greece.
  • Brighouse High School, United Kingdom
  • Istituto Comprensivo Statale “S. Francesco/Petrarca” di San Severo –Secondaria di I Grado, Italiy
  • Manisa Do?a Koleji, Turkey
  • and Szkola Podstawowa Nr 18, of Poland.

Students organized themselves in groups nominating a group leader who was resposible for compiling all group work and prepare in word format with photos. Responsible teachers were uploading the works to the twin space of the project in the case of 1st. and 2nd. CSE, meanwhile group leaders were given administration rights so the y could upload the projects themselves. It is important to say that 3rd. CSE students also participated in another Etwinning project entitled Diving in the Oceans of Knowledge with other European schools.

On 14th. January we started a voting among the different students and teachers of the project to choose the name of our e-magazine, and on  21st. January the name The Student Gazette was decided by the vast majority of electors.

Below you have the link to our e-magazine so you can see and enjoy the our students´ great effort and enthusiasm in their works, together with that of other schools involved.


Congratulations to all participants, and be this project the first step to start promoting all kind of projects and exchange programmes of our beloved school and other European schools!!!
