German children

Pioneering initiative: Improving International student relations SOURCE: Twitter

THE MARISTA school, Malaga, recently participated in an Erasmus + project, where thirteen 5-year-old German students visited the school as part of a pioneering initiative.

 The German students have come with four teachers and their parents to live and learn with the students of Malaga. It is the first time in Spain that an Erasmus + program mobility has been carried out with such young students and the experience has been so interesting that the SEPIE, the Spanish Service for the Internationalization of Education, has already requested information from the school to analyse the results.

IES Huelin is developing an Erasmus + course on school inclusion which helps students with functional diversity. “The goal is for students to become aware of and raise awareness about these students and that teachers also see what strategies we can use to make school inclusion a reality,” explains Professor of Therapeutic Pedagogy, Emilio Guzmán.

Thanks to this project, two students with autism and another with ADHD have already been chosen to travel in February to a school in Wales that participates in this Erasmus +. They will improve their social skills when traveling with other students and without their parents. Sometimes they are isolated and thanks to the project they are in contact with more people.”
