Global Smiles

The idea upon which this project is based is that of raising awareness among the students about their identity as part of a global community, which could eventually take precedence over their identity as citizens of a nation through language learning.

Project Journal

  • Our project is going to be considered for the National Prizes this year! How exciting!
    Just a reminder to every one of the great achievements from last year during Refugee Week in which we raised 460 pounds in England and 465 euros in Spain. The raise funds went to the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Refugee Forum and the Spanish Red Cross in collaboration with the Spanish Commission for Refugees. Everyone got involved in NGA, from teachers to students and we had different activities such as "teachers karaoke", "henna tattoos" ,"Names in Arabic" and "Sponge the Teacher". Some pictures are attached! Fond memories...

  • On the world Refugee Day, teachers and students working on the eTwinning Project "Global Smiles" are carrying out events and activities to make our community aware of this reality nowadays.
    These are some of the activities we have prepared during this Refugee Week and a great video of the poem which our students have recorded working cooperatively between the schools.
    Thanks to all teachers and students that have been invloved in this activity, such as Joaquín for the beautiful poster, Pedro Javier and Javier Carmona organising the Poem Recital...

The primary objective is that our students (future adults) become aware of the problems that affect our society and realize that they are an active part of society and should not be passive in the face of the challenges facing humanity . Thank you Emilio for your collaboration and disinterested participation this morning with the conferences so well prepared and so enjoyable.
