The Bridge Partnership was built upon helping our students develop a range of key competences. These include
These key competences include 'traditional' skills such as communication in one's mother tongue, foreign languages, digital skills, literacy, and basic skills in maths and science, as well as horizontal skills such as learning to learn, social and civic responsibility, initiative and entrepreneurship, cultural awareness, and creativity.
The project activities were built upon
Improving students' research skills through text through developing skills in evaluating the integrity of texts (including digital sources)
Using Drama as a tool for Learing which aims to contextualise and apply skills in communication in both mother tongue and in a foreign language.
Developing digital skills through the creation of a wide range of presentational tools.
The Trilateral exchange between Croatia, Norway and Slovenia was aimed at improving students love of reading and using this as a gateway to encouraging an improvement in students' research skills through text through developing skills in evaluating the integrity of texts (including digital sources)
