IES Bahía de Almería

IES Bahía de Almería

IES Bahía de Almería is a secondary school with 52 teachers and 550 students of both levels ESO (Compulsory Secondary Education) and Bachillerato (6th grade, ages 16-18). There are three groups for each level (e.g. 1º ESO A, 1º ESO B, 1º ESO C, 2º, ESO A, 2º ESO B, 2º ESO C...). The school would like to take part in this European project as it provides the possibility to improve and experience a multilingual and multicultural environment and to use long-term learning strategies with the use of ICT, which represents a great opportunity for all of us, as we can improve the quality of our daily practice as teachers.

The school is located in a privileged natural environment, almost unique in Europe, giving the partnership a real added value. Located in a unique heritage triangle, among Málaga, Granada and Murcia, represents the Southeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula. In the European context, the south-western corner of Europe was also the last place of Muslim presence in Europe. The southern border of Europe stands here and was defended against the Muslim invasion for over 200 years (the conquest of Granada, the battle of Lepanto). So it is a good place from which we can ponder what its values are, how to preserve and further develop them in our current context of immigration. It is also a challenge for the inclusion of an increasing number of immigrants who sail into kickboats, or simply arrive at our airports and ports. Taking part in an international project will, therefore, help to boost our language concept and integration as well as to fight anti-European, national feelings, which have recently grown stronger. Additionally, the province of Almería offers a particular agricultural method that has caused the greatest improvement in the economic growth of the area: these are plastic greenhouses, which provide thousands of jobs and a sustainable and healthy agricultural model. Our school is just starting a K229 Erasmus+ project on orienteering sports.

Our Erasmus team is made up of 10 teachers who work in international programmes. We hold meetings once a month. Next year, bilingual teaching will include the last year of compulsory education (4ºESO). So bilingual teaching will be established in the 4 years of compulsory education (12-16 years old students). Within this new framework, a larger number of colleagues will be able to step in and be actively involved in our bilingual project. In conclusion, we hope that the project proposed here has an impact in the school and in its school community and also provides a inspiration to the students on how to preserve our natural and historical heritage along with critical thinking and  the means to solve problems using teamwork strategies.

We think this will guarantee solid and innovative learning for our new European students generations. IES Bahía de Almería will host the fourth learning, teaching, and training activity and arrange, design and maintain the project's website and include the eTwinning platform run by Arsakeio Gymnasium."
