Mobility in Ireland

From the 11th to the 17th of May, a group of 6 students and 2 teachers from our school travelled to Rossport (Ireland) for the last mobility of our project.

We had to get up very early on Saturday, to take a bus to Barcelona Airport and get our flight to Dublin. There we had to take another bus and a 4-hour drive to our final destination, where we had the Irish families waiting to pick up the students they would be hosting that week.

Those days were filled with activities (a welcome ceremony, Irish dancing classes, surfing and kayaking, visiting the Bioshell factory). It was a good experience for our students and we hope they will remember the trip for a long time.

Mobility in Girona

During the first week of March, students and teachers from our partner schools in Ireland, Greece, Finland and Poland flew to Girona for our third mobility. It was an intense week, with a trip to Barcelona, which included a visit to La Sagrada Familia and the Parc Güell. We also visited the Cooperativa La Fageda, the company we designed the advertising campaign for, and we obviously worked. We had two workshops: one on starting an eco business (Llagurt) and the other on funding, credits, interest rates and other information which will surely be useful in the future.

A special thanks to the Ajuntament de Girona, to set aside time for a visit of the building and a talk by Mr Carles Ribas, councilman.

The students were hosted by the families of the Institut Ermessenda de Girona and they did their best to make everyone feel at home.

Second meeting in Smardzewice – Poland

It was just after we had started our school year, that a group of 8 people from INS Ermessenda (6 students and 2 teachers) went to Poland for our second Erasmus meeting.

It was a wonderful week. Our students stayed with Polish students, we visited local sights, Warsaw, and also Euroglas, the company we had done our presentation on. The visit to their factory was fascinating, as was the time spent with our friends from Finland, Greece, Ireland and Poland.

We would like to thank the Polish families for hosting us and for all the great effort they put in that week. 

First meeting in Athens – Greece

At the end of April, 4 students (Aina, Luca, Mar, Mirna) and and 2 teachers (Maite and Oscar) from our school travelled to Athens, capital of Greece, to take part in the first project meeting. From the 21st to the 27th, our students and also the ones from Ireland, Finland and Poland were hosted by Greek families.

Apart from our project activities, we visited the Acropolis and other city landmarks. On Thursday 26th, we went to the Apivita HQ to present our first advertising campaign.

All in all, it was a great experience! 

Our second logo

Our students and our Art teacher, Marc, came up with a second logo for our Erasmus+ company. Both logos on this page will be presented in Athens (Greece) during the first mobility in April 2018.

Thanks Marc for your hard work and thank you Art students for these logos!

Graphic design workshop

On Monday 27th, Cristina Guillot, from the Escola Universitària ERAM (associated with the UdG) came to our school to train our students in basic aspects of marketing and graphic design.

The 1-hour workshop was used to give tips on formats, colour range, products and software that our students will be using in order to create the graphic design section for the first marketing campaign of our project.

With this information, we have now the tools to start creating flyers, brochures and posters.

The collaboration with ERAM will surely continue in the future as we continue with the project.

Thanks Cristina!
