The goal will be increasing European citizenship, by learning about other countries and collaborating with students from other European areas. The school is involved in several projects and has experience in the following areas: • Cultural exchanges with schools of several foreign countries •Planning of learning activities in order to promote active citizenship, the acquisition and assessment of skills and competences for lifelong learning.
