"From the beginning, the Euroknitters project was a way of uniting teachers and students from a group of seven schools, with the aim of internationalizing the group of schools Agrupamento de Escolas do Cerco do Porto.
When the project was approved, we were all very happy and also very concerned to find a way to respond to all project expectations.
As a coordinator the challenge was huge, to get students from 8 to 10 years old to participate with their teachers, in this project that provided for the mobility to the foreigner and to speak in English.
But together, united with the international partners, so many children's dreams have come true!
Thank you for the enriching experience!"
ISABEL PELICANO, portuguese coordinator
This project implies 2 years of intense work that will be translated into activities in two modalities in a transversal way. An internal modality of work in each educational center and coordinated through social networks and another modality that involves the mobility of students and teachers to work in the partners’ schools.
