Our Project

Welcome to our website COMENIUS “SOS Europe”.
We are students and teachers from highschools in Parabiago/Italy, Dublin/Ireland, Palma de Mallorca/Spain, Sofia/Bulgaria, Torun/Poland and Syke/Germany. We had done some great international projects in the past, but now we have been cooperating for the first time in this constellation. The project has been a great chance to meet new friends in Europe and learn about their lives, their schools, their towns and countries, culture, lifestyle, their hopes and wishes. We wanted to look beyond our horizons and become true Europeans, overcome prejudices and find respect for each other - and absorb the manifold inspirations we will get from each other’s beliefs and values.

A first planning meeting in Syke/Germany end October 2013, where directors and teachers from each partner country met and immediately became friends, has been a great start. Then there was the meeting in Dublin in February 2014. Irish friendliness and hospitality were overwhelming, and we have fond memories of hours walking in the rain along fascinating lakes and cliffs. Our next meeting was in early May 2014 in Sofia. During the meeting, we worked hard at school, we saw the beauty of the capital, and also the ancient Plovdiv. The next step was meeting end of September 2014 in Parabiago. The programme of the meeting was fantastic. At school, the participants presented traditional food and sports in their countries. Then in snowy Torun in mid-December where our wonderful Polish hosts presented a 12-course-Christmas dinner, we told each other about our Christmas traditions, sang songs and had so much fun. 2015 began with the encounter in sunny Mallorca in May with “A Little Concert for Europe” with so much young European talent. Also, there like at all the other meetings students and teachers enjoyed all the creative activities and excursions together. The final meeting was in Strasbourg in June, where we could visit the EU-Parliament and felt the unique atmosphere in the center of Europe.

The project “SOS Europe” is over now, but we will stay in contact as we know that our friendship will last. Hopefully some day our dream of a new project “Erasmus+” will come true.
