American Academy Larnaca Comenius Programme ‘New Leadership, New Management, New School’
Our school is hosting an educational meeting within the framework of a European teaching programme that is offered to schools across Europe and includes various themed projects.
The American Academy Larnaca has been taking part in a Comenius this Programme since 2012 with the theme ‘New Leadership, New Management, New School’, and is now hosting the third meeting of the project from October 30 until November 4.
Teachers and students representing Romania, Turkey, Germany, Italy, Finland and Croatia will be travelling to Cyprus for the meeting on ‘Project Management’, and as part of the event will also be introduced to the island’s culture and history by the Academy Comenius team.
The next meeting will take place in Finland in February and will focus on each participating country’s education system, with the Academy delegation also taking part.
Part of the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme, the Comenius Programme focuses on all levels of school education. Through issues strongly related to current discussions and developments in school policy: motivation for learning and ‘learning-to-learn’ skills, key competences, digital educational content and inclusive education, it aims to help young people and educational staff better understand the range of European cultures, languages and values. It also strives to assist young people in acquiring the basic life skills and competences necessary for personal development, future employment and active citizenship in Europe.
