Activity A20 - SEL activities

We worked on Emotional Intelligence Activity (A20). Students are really moved by working on topics of exile in the rest of activities and wonder if there is a cure of all of that pain that some people suffer and how humanity can prevent phenomena like that. We found the answer in the lyrics of the song “Heal the World”. Love and mutual understanding may be the solution. We sang it and chosen it to be the song that all the partners will sing together during the mobility in Greece (activity A13 collaborative song).  

Mobility in The Netherlands - 2nd day

Today students have been investigating about Kamp Vught, a nazi concentration camp 10 km away from Schijndel. After watching a video they have been looking for information and creating a presentation to share with the rest of the students. See how our second day of activities at school has been.

Mobility to The Netherlands - 1st day

Today students gathered today together for the first time and they have been working in international groups. First they were asked to find out about refugee countries (Eritrea, Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq) and the reasons why they have to flee their countries. they looked up also for typical food from these countries. Before lunch they presented their presentations to the rest of the groups and after lunch they went shopping for ingredients and cooked altogher the chosen recipies. Once finished, they offered the rest of the students and teachers a taste of these countries' food. It was an amazing day! see below the video done by the Catalan school to have an idea of what was going on here today!

Activity A20 - SEL activities

We are working on Emotional Intelligent.
That does not happen here does not mean that it is not happening "is the slogan of this campaign that tries to raise awareness about the suffering of children during armed conflicts.
We talked about the song of Chambao and we sang it.
We also learn about Saja’ s and Malak’ s  life story.  
Saja, 12, a girl who has lost one leg in a bombing, displaced in her country and living in ruins. He explains that he was a gymnast and wants to be a gymnastics teacher, who loves school, who lacks electric light and plays soccer with his crutches.
Malak, 7, tells his trip to a pneumatic boat in which he spent cold, scared and lost all his belongings. He is now in Greece waiting to be able to go to his destination. He dreams of returning to Syria as he was before the war, with his friends, his college and his teacher.
Joan Dausà releases "How the sea cries" for Casa nostra, your home.
The singer will perform a tour of five concerts on the street to publicize the campaign and encourage citizens to mobilize.
Joan Dausà has composed the song "How does the cry mar ", dedicated to the crisis of refuge in Europe, which opens exclusively in our House, your home.
The video clip of the song, directed by Paulí Subirà and Xavier Bonet, shows raw images of the journey that people from their countries of origin must take to the refugee camps, going through the sea.
The letter says that the sea cries before the death of the people who cross it. "I liked the idea that an element of nature like the sea, which is the cradle of all cultures, weeping for what humans are doing," Dausà explains. The composer hopes that the song will help "remove consciousness" and "ask everyone if he is not also responsible for what is seen in the video clip": the violence, tragedy and repression suffered by people fleeing war.

Mobility to Finland on Greek newspaper

Activity - A9 UNHCR material

Karya Primary School, Greece:
Nea Karya Primary School collaborated with the SHO of its region in order the students to participate in “Passages”, a role playing game developed by UNHCR in 1995 designed to put participants through the experience of being a refugee fleeing war or persecution. Members of SHO designated as game leaders and organized the game that it took place in the school. Students and teachers were subdivided in “families”. Each of these “families” played game modules putting themselves through all aspects of being a refugee (fleeing a country, crossing borders, claiming asylum).

Nea Karya Primary School, Greece – Dissemination of the outcomes of the mobility in Finland

Students and teachers that attended the mobility in Greece disseminate the school community (teachers and students) their experience from the mobility in Finland.
