After five years from the headteachers‘ conference in 2012,  Gymnázium bilingválne, T. Ružičku 3 in Žilina welcomed the heads and teachers from 14 Europroject schools in Austria, Belgium - Flanders, Wallonie,  Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg- city, Luxembourg - Esch, Netherlands, Slovakia, Spain,  Portugal, and one new school from Poland. This time the conference was also with students (two from each of the 13 visiting schools), who took part in the simulation of the European Council - MEC - an event organised by the YEL club Slovakia under the Erasmus+ project.  

While the students were discussing the security of the EU issues and European Defence Plan, the teachers were deciding about the future Europroject organisation. Mr. Hans Vanhulle officially stepped back from the position of the President of  the Network and the elections for a new leading team were held. The members elected are: Jean Theis who agreed to act out formally as the President, Janka Mládenková and Satu Syyrakki being backed up by Secretary General Mr. Georg Latzke for one more year. Then teachers presented their schools´ international activities and projects like LIFE and HOPE (both Erasmus+ projects) and V.I.P., the conference in Wallonia 2018. The network business finished with the speed dating and socialising at the resort of Drevenice Terchová.


Apart from the headteachers´conference there was one-day conference called a YEL multiplier event organised by the coordinating school GBZA to disseminate the project results not only to the Europroject schools but also to the invited school representatives and VIP guests from Slovakia. The YEL project is unique in its combination of the activities - physical and virtual ones, long-term study mobilities (login to see the survey) and intellectual output creation.

What is more, its natural continuation is our new project HOPE approved by the Erasmus+, which started by the kick-off conference in Zilina in October taking among Europroject partner schools from Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Slovakia also a school from Torun, Poland. Whether funded or not, GBZA will continue with the organization of the Žilina MUN conferences - www.zamun.sk and thanks to a great cooperation and our friendship with the other Europroject schools we believe in future mutual projects and activities to enrich the school communities.

The conference in Zilina/Terchova also offered its participants to take part in a hiking trip to Jánošíkové Diery, which turned out to be a funny, muddy experience and luckily no one was injured or in a visit to the Orava castle and the wooden church in Leštiny - UNESCO heritage. The students got a chance to get to know Zilina and its surroundings via a geocaching game, which tested their physical, digital, logical and teambuilding skills. The whole conference ended in Terchová, where practical workshops offered the skilled ones to try some of the Slovak crafts - e.g. woodcarving, bobbin lace making, cheese strings pulling and folk dance group performance.

LIFE: Linking Interests For Europe

LIFE CONFERENCE LÜBBECKE
05 - 11 March 2017

LIFE

We learn not for school, but for life.

This principle is the central aim of our LIFE-project and was put into practice in March 2017 when the final LIFE-Conference took place at Wittekind-Gymnasium in Lübbecke, Germany.

Students and teachers from Portugal, Italy and Belgium were hosted by their German partners and spent some interesting days together gathering lots of new experiences in different fields of work. The group visited the local enterprise Wortmann AG to get an insight into 'IT Made in Germany' and the screen printing factory Siebdruck Blase. During their visits they learned a lot about how these two international companies operate.

On top of that the students attended several workshops led by external experts. The focus of this conference was on the students' needs such as learning how to assess themselves, writing a letter for application and doing a job interview. Therefore the agency AUBI-plus offered professional application coaching for the students - especially on how to apply online and what to expect in an assessment centre process. Additionally, they were taught in how to create a professional promotional video. This knowledge helped them a lot when working on the tasks of producing presentations, brochures and a video on the two companies they visited during the week.

One of the highlights of the week the group spent together was the visit of Autostadt Wolfsburg. After their guided tour of the VW factory they all were very impressed by what they learned about this international enterprise. When visiting the different pavilions in the Autostadt they were able to intensify their impressions.
In the end all participants were happy with the outcome of the conference and the results of the promotional material that was created.

After their week in Lübbecke all participating teachers agreed that they consider a cooperation with the companies as something very valuable for their schools that should be continued in the future. When coming back home all schools have to prepare their local trade fairs now in which they will present their results to the local audience at school.


In May the coordinating teachers will meet again in Belgium to disseminate and evaluate the project together.

HOPE - Human Opportunities for Peace in Europe

In March 2017 the Euronetwork school Lycée Michel-Rodange submitted an application for a shared K2 project called HOPE - Human Opportunities for Peace in Europe. The LMRL functions as the project’s coordinating school cooperating with Europroject partnerschools from Germany, Spain and Slovakia and a school from Torun / Poland. They made acquaintance with last year in Slovakia at the ZaMUN2016 conference.

The project brings our five schools together to tackle the growing loss of common European values and the risk of a Europe falling apart by implementing the next three core pillars at each school by organising extra-curricular HOPE clubs / working groups.

1.Students learn and discuss about politics and are prepared for the participation in MUN (Model United Nation) conferences. We send mobilities twice a year to ZaMUN and ToMUN and will have the first MUN conference in Luxembourg, LuMUN in November 2019, which will be offered as a network conference to all Europroject schools, then too.

2. Students are made to initiate and conduct regular charity activities.

3. Students are trained to act as mediators for their fellow students in classrooms.
