Comenius 1 project “Miles of Smiles”
Our project incorporates schools from Estonia (x2), Italy and Northern Ireland.
The coordinating partner- Our Lady Queen of Peace Primary School in Belfast.
The number of children taking direct part in the project is 1436 who are directly involved and an additional 360 children indirectly involved. We have based our project on as many children from the participatory partners being involved. The age range of pupils is from 4 to 17 and we aim through the wide variety of activities on offer to keep all pupils actively involved.
Our activities include:
All of these activities will be as cross curricular as possible and will not discriminate against any partner based on gender, ethnicity or nationality. Each activity will allow all partners to celebrate their success through the creation of shared end products which will add to the resources, as well as the knowledge of each partner school.
We have strong interest levels from all teachers in all schools, we envisage at least 87 professionals being actively involved with the project and all other members of staff kept informed of the project through their own schools dissemination.
