Erasmus Project

Five students from our senior cycle and two teachers participated on an exchange programme with the Valencian Secondary School : IES Ramón Llull in Spain on a project work: "Drama as an inclusive tool in the classroom". 


Eight Spanish students and two teachers visited Listowel in October 19
Pupils and teachers were working on two authors and one of their works; The Field by John B. Keane and Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. The cultural factor in drama and literature through a foreign language, will help students to understand the essence of being another person in a completely different context. 
The Irish students and families have immersed and welcomed the Spanish students in school and day to day life. 

Our Irish students were able to do the trip before Covid19 changed our lives and all went as planned. The trip was extremely enjoyable, and they were able to do all visits and all the work programmed. 


Students and teachers enjoyed school and family life in their partners schools. The students were extremely lucky as both trips happened before the new situation that had the lives of many in the whole world under lock. We trust the situation will improve and ease, and we will be able to do amazing projects and experiences like this, in the near future.  We won't say goodbye so, but see you later and as soon as our "new normality" allows us to travel safely, we will be doing projects as exciting and enriching and this again.


The project has been a great credit to all students and teachers , families , school community and the Erasmus plus programme funding through Léargas, that has made this type of projects possible and successful. 


On the last stage of the project students continued remotely through technology, like the etwinning platform, and finalised their work doing and participating in their diaries and reflexion competition. The project was planned to be finished by the end of October, and all went as planned. 


The project has been fully funded through Léargas, on the EU Erasmus plus exchange programme.
