Sveaskolan at Nordplus Seminar in Stockholm

Pauline Håkansson, Ida Köhler and John Dennis were asked to speak at a Nordplus Seminar in Stockholm by the International Program Office the 26th of January 2012.

Ida and Pauline did most of the talking and their presentation was extremely successful.

The goal was for us to talk about the positive aspects of the project called "Start With Yourself" and what could have been better.

A women who works at the International Program Office was so moved by the presentation that she had to dry her eyes. She said she had never had the opportunity to hear about a successful project from students before and was touched when she had the chance to hear it.

Peter Honeth, State Secretary for Research, incorporated what was heard in the girls' presentation in to his own by quoting Ida and Pauline on a few occasions.

Congratulations Pauline and Ida! Well done!

Comenius Project 2010-2012

The title of our project is Communication as an Art. 7 countries will participate: Spain, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Sweden, Germany and Iceland. Trips will take place in the above order and the project will last roughly 2 years: 09/10 - 06/12. In preparation for the first visit,students will investigate partner countries and prepare powerpoint presentations about themselves, families, schools, towns, and countries. Students in Spain will write and prepare the first performance of the projectʼs Chain Story to be performed during the first visit. The Chain Story Project is an ongoing drama that will travel from country to country, starting in Spain and ending in Iceland. Each country will add on to the drama thus contributing aspects of their cultures into the ongoing saga. What's more, each student will read Gulliverʼs Travels by Swift in their mother tongues. The book will be used during the visits as a common experience. Each student will improve reading skills and vocabulary in their mother tongues by reading. The content of the book will be used for expressive, receptive and reflective activities in English. These activities will vary depending on the theme of the visit. Each visit will have a unique communicative theme: Music, Dance, Mimic, Games, Crafts, Drama & Art. Students will use the etwinning site on the internet and use it as an interactive platform reflecting the activities performed during the project and reflections made throughout. Things to be included: pictures, videos, texts, realia, drawings, recordings and whatever else they deem appropriate. The Comenius Corner will also be a physical corner in each institute visibly available for all partner schools.

Article

Nordplus, autumn 2010, Iceland

• Interview, (Silja, Matte, Arita, John)
• what have you learned?
• how did you like it?
• what is the most memorable thing from your journey/when you had visitors?

Fact: sponsorship, why, contact with other schools?

During the fall semester, many of the students at Sveaskolan have engaged in "The
Nordplus project". The project consists of a student exchange and extra studies at
school, focusing especially on health, both environmental and physical. It is voluntarily
to join the project, and there has been a big interest from both students and teachers.
"I joined the project because I wanted to get to know new people around Scandinavia. It
is always useful to have a global network. This was also an opportunity to make new
friends, that will hopefully last a lifetime!" says Henrik Fritzon, one of the students from
Sweden. There are four countries involved, each contributing with one school. So far all
of the students involved have been very satisfied, and many have commented on what a
wonderful experience it has been.

"Learning about our neighbouring countries is very important. You learn a lot more by
getting to meet the people and actually experience everything that you usually just read
about." The students claim that the project has not only helped them to develop their
English, but that they also have an increased understanding and interest in our
neighbouring countries.

"I have gained a lot of new friend, and I think that the Nordplus project was a wonderfull
experience!" says Caroline from Sweden. The goal with the project is to promote Nordic
and Baltic languages and cultures, contribute to the development of educational systems
and strengthen the educational co-operation within the countries involved.

SVEASKOLAN is in a NORDPLUS PROJECT and a Comenius Project.

Title:
Start with Yourself

Four countries will participate: Iceland, Sweden, Lithuania and Latvia. Trips will take place in the above order (Lithuania and Latvia will be visited during the same trip to save money on flights) and the project will last 1 year: September 2010 to September 2011. Participants will be between 13 and 15 years old.

Coordinator: Sveaskolan, Sweden

Internationella projekt

Purpose:
The purpose of the project is to help students to become more aware of their own health and how decisions that they make in regard to life style choices can effect them both now and in the future.

The project aims to help students to develop their research skills. This includes how to create questionnaires and assessment of these, how to conduct meaningful research that includes reflecting on their own ways of thinking and comparing this with others.

As this is an international project students will improve their English skills while discovering more about the cultures and life styles of the other participating countries.

Internationella projekt


Project summary:
The project will include theoretical and practical parts.

Each country will concentrate on a specific area of health (eating habits, exercise, environmental health and substance abuse), create questionnaires, conduct international research about this area, present this for the other countries to make everybody aware of these research findings. Each partner country will initiate practical activities dealing with their specific area to be used as educational tools during visits.

Annual Priority: Health

Background/Motivation for the project:

Nowadays, the majority of teenagers are not aware of how their present life styles affect, not only their lives today, but their futures as well.

 

Students are negatively affected by:

Lack of physical activity
Poor sleeping and hygiene habits
Substance abuse
Poor eating habits
Their environment

These health issues are problems in all the participating countries and many others as well.

All partner countries have been involved in a Nordplus Junior Mobility Project before and want to deepen their relationships. Prior to that project’s initiation, we discovered a number of negative cultural prejudices among the participants. By collaborating with the partner countries many of these stereotypes were proved to be wrong. The project not only had a positive influence on students but on their families, teachers and local communities as well and this motivated us to continue working together and to include more people.

Utbytesprojekt breddar elevernas vy

På Sveaskolan i Limhamn får elever delta i utbytesprojekt med andra länder. Eleverna får besöka olika platser samtidigt som de lär sig att leva med människor med andra nationaliteter. Skolan har fått ett stipendium från Nordplus som arbetar för att utveckla ungas syn på samhället.

Kommer du ihåg personen du brevväxlade med när du gick i grundskolan? Var det med någon i Danmark, Spanien eller kanske Tyskland? Efter två eller tre brev har ni tappat kontakten. Sveaskolan tar kommunikationen till en ny nivå. Redan i grundskolan får elever som vill och har möjlighet delta i ett utbytesprojekt med andra länder. Eleverna får åka till Island, Lettland eller Litauen och tar även emot grupper från dessa länder. Eleverna bor hemma hos olika elever från värdlandet i fem nätter. Värdfamiljen ser till att gästen får mat samt sovplats. Utbytesdeltagarna får uppleva landets samhällsliv, lära sig om traditioner och kultur, skaffa nya vänner samtidigt som man övar sin engelska. Lärarna och eleverna i värdlandet gör upp en planering för veckans aktiviteter, de ska vara både roliga och lärorika. Vid varje resa finns det ett tema, till exempel miljöpåverkan eller missbruk. Under skoltid arrangeras mer lärorika aktiviteter och utflykter. På eftermiddag och kvällstid arrangeras mer sociala aktiviteter så som bowling eller fest, där man lär känna varandra. Deltagarna får även så kallad "free time", det vill säga oplanerad tid där de får hitta på något själva med sina värdar. Resorna pågår under ett års tid. Den ansvarige läraren för detta projekt på Sveaskolan är John Dennis. Han är lärare i spanska och engelska. John Dennis anser att projektet inte bara är givande på det språkliga planet utan också ger ungdomar möjlighet att uppleva andra skolsystem och se dem i relation till det egna. "Eleverna kan läsa hur mycket som helst om olika länder, men det är något helt annat att uppleva det och följa en familj i dess vardag" säger Dennis. Projektet finansieras av Nordplus. Nordplus är ett program som verkar för att stärka kontakten mellan nordiska och baltiska länder samt bidra till utveckling och nytänkande i skolor. På Sveaskolan pågår det även ett tvåårigt projekt som finansieras av Comenius. I projektet deltar fler länder: Spanien, Italien, Turkiet, Tyskland, Island, Polen och Sverige. Eftersom det är ett tvåårigt projekt är det främst elever från årskurs sju och åtta som deltar. Den tolfte december i år kommer de svenska eleverna ta emot ungdomar från projektländerna. De kommer visa Malmö under jultid samt gå på föreläsningar kring narkotika.
