OUR EU PROJECTS

Thanks to the EU projects 256 students took part in mobilities and the amount of funding obtained for the school exceeded PLN 2 million. The experience gained from the implemented projects affected the entire school and local community and improved the cooperation with the employers. All school employees were involved in the implementation of the projects, the main tasks were carried out by a very experienced project team. Since 2012, the school has been cooperating with the German school Staatliches Gymnasium “Dr. Sulzberger” in Bad Salzungen and we have been implementing many joint projects. We obtain financial support for this purpose from the Foundation for Polish-German Youth Cooperation. The cooperation involves exchanging experiences, promoting cultural heritage, promoting respect for other people, their religion and traditions. The benefits of contacting foreign friends and establishing closer friendships are invaluable for students. The schools have so far implemented five international exchange projects together in order to enhance such values as tolerance, multiculturalism and international education. Students of our school cooperate with German youth exchanging opinions on discussion forums established as part of the project. This cooperation is a perfect complement to the projects within the Erasmus+ program.
