    Cities Our Lovely Rainbows!

    "The Colors" is a mobility based and child-centered project which intends to introduce Europe to the participants in the light of European cities. We especially focus on cities because we premised our project on the idea that every city's worthy regardless of its population, location, etc. Europe is a puzzle and each city is an indispensable part of this puzzle! But in contrast to this reality, when someone looks at a map of Europe for touristic or other reasons, he/she notices only well-known, crowded or capital cities unintentionally because of the general tendency to prefer the well-known, crowded and capital cities to the others which results in other cities being ignored and forgotten. In order to eliminate the hesitations and prejudices towards the other cities and rescue them from the shadow of the big ones, this project will work as effectively as it can. Our target groups are our pupils aged 11-15 years, their parents, teaching and management staff of partner countries' schools and the local people. We will integrate our target groups into our project by a series of well-planned and interesting activities such as dancing, singing, acting, cooking, etc. which will promote our target groups' some special skills and competencies such as linguistic, artistic, communication, interpersonal, digital, etc. which are necessary and beneficiary for their future careers, personal developments, social and emotional lives. With this project our pupils will explore Europe and learn the common values and principles of EU first hand. It'll increase our target groups' awareness of European Dimension and they will become more active European citizens. Also, we use the rainbow as a symbol for our project because for us every city's like a rainbow with its wonderful features!

  • Creation of Artwork

    The first joint project was the creation of a piece of artwork designed and created by all the students on the first mobility to the UK. Using our logo of a rainbow, students worked in mixed nationality groups to create rainbow using a range of different craft materials. The names of towns, schools and names of students were added in addition to the key concepts underpinning our project. The display has formed part of a permanent display of our Comenius project in our school.
