Take a look at how INS Vilatzara supported Big Dance
Connecting Classrooms is a project that builds lasting partnerships between schools in the UK and around the world. The aim is to build understanding and trust between young people in different societies – helping to create the global citizens of the future.
In practice, teachers and school leaders are supported to develop international school partnerships through a range of projects and activities.
Connecting Classrooms in Spain
The focus of Connecting Classrooms is in Catalunya, where ten schools have been teamed up with counterparts in Bosnia, Poland and Scotlandon projects to promote inclusion and strengthen leadership skills amongst young people.
In 2010, our Connecting Classrooms schools in Baix Maresme exchanged culture boxes, made mini movies and organised a photography competition between schools in the four countries.
