Erasmus+ Professional Development


During the period from 2016 - 2018 we were fortunate to receive funding from Erasmus+ which enabled staff members to avail of professional development opportunities throughout Europe.  The objectives of the project centred on enhancing ICT skills, exploring how best to use culture in an educational setting, inclusion of every child with particular emphasis on special education, best use of outdoor facilities and the ability to enhance our teaching of a second language.  A total of 29 mobilities allowed staff, both teaching and non-teaching, to enhance their skills through attendance at various courses.  Not alone were staff members upskilled but our European identity and awareness was strengthened.   The feedback from all staff was very positive and methodologies learned on the courses have been implemented in school.  Alongside course participation we were afforded the opportunity for 2 shadowing visits to our partner schools in Poland and Greece.  Again we were able to learn from our counterparts particularly in relation to integration, Xanthi Greece and greater involvement of parents, Rydoltwy Poland.
