  1. 1. BE HEALTHY/ FEEL HAPY SEJA SAUDÁVEL / SINTA-SE FELIZ EB1/JI de Vila Nova da Baronia D. PROJECT DESCRIPTION D.1. SUMMARY The Project is designed to attract people’s attention to our most precious possession, our HEALTH, of which importance is understood when it is lost. It would be remarkable that people begin to care about it before it is too late, when they have the chance to save their health. Inspired from this idea, we would like to make everyone around us remember health’s value and acquire a positive change in lifestyles. With this Project we will help our students/parents/staff adapt a healthy lifestyle, putting a special emphasis on the importance of following a healthy diet and doing sports which are the two key factors in leading a healthy life. The first year of the project will be dedicated to the issue of healthy diet, presenting our traditional and healthy food as an alternative choice for unhealthy ones through preparing commercials, making plantations, etc. (O primeiro ano do projeto será dedicada à questão da alimentação saudável, apresentando a nossa cozinha tradicional e saudável como uma alternativa para os não saudáveis preparando campanhas publicitárias, fazendo plantações.) The second year will be employed to the promotion of exercising and sports by the extra volleyball, table-tennis, folk dances, football courses that are going to be opened, and competitions that will be held in each school. (O segundo ano será empregado para a promoção do exercício e desportos como do vôleibol, ténis de mesa, danças folclóricas, campeonatos de futebol que vão ser abertas a toda acomunidade bem como todas as competições que serão realizadas em cada escola.) On the other hand, our pupils/teachers will have a chance to see other countries’ lifestyles, their traditional food and sports/games which will enhance the European dimension of learning. Apart from being motivated for learning processes they will enjoy working collaborative with their peers all around Europe regardless of nationalities. As countries get to know more about each other, the gap between them will be minimized creating and spreading the idea of European and global citizenship. (Por outro lado, os nossos alunos / professores terão a oportunidade de ver estilos de vida de outros países (a comida tradicional, desportes / de jogos tradicionais), que irá reforçar a dimensão europeia da aprendizagem. Além de ser motivados para a aprendizagem de processos, irão desfrutar de um trabalho em colaboração com os seus pares em toda a Europa, independentemente das nacionalidades. Como países, irão conhecer mais sobre os outros, a distância entre eles será minimizada, para criar e difundir a idéia de cidadania Europeia e global) We will organize a big festival in the end, tournaments between countries, prepare journal with two editions, the Vegetable and Fruit Map of Europe, e-cookery book in our web-site designed for the project. D.2. RATIONALE 1
  2. 2. BE HEALTHY/ FEEL HAPY SEJA SAUDÁVEL / SINTA-SE FELIZ EB1/JI de Vila Nova da Baronia This Project is needed because according to the World Health Organization over one billion people are overweight globally, and that if current trends continue, that number will increase to 1.5 billion by 2015. Overweight and obesity are important risk factors for cardiovascular disease, which is the number one cause of death and accounts for over 17 million deaths every year. We want to change the foreseen future of our kids with the help of this Project as Dr Robert Beaglehole, WHO Director of Chronic Diseases and Health Promotion says “The real tragedy is that overweight and obesity, and their related chronic diseases, are largely preventable.” "Approximately 80% of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancer could be avoided through healthy diet, regular physical activity and avoidance of tobacco use." Childhood years are the time when the persons are building up their lifestyle so it is crucial to act during this period. Because habits are hard to change once they are gained and it is only meaningful to act before wrong choices have become part of their lifestyles. Our project will help individuals to make good choices in their diet, be aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and encourage them to have an active life. We know that a healthy lifestyle in childhood has an utmost effect on lifelong health, growth and intellectual development. If the body is healthy, it creates a happy community, happy communities constitute happy nations and thus a happy Europe and World in the end. It is important to cooperate with other European partner schools to make the project more efficient, penetrant and attractive. All of these will increase the stability and effect of the promotion of healthy living. It will start from one country and spread to Europe raising the quality of living within. With the help of this project the pupils /staff will be prompted to discuss their everyday life and gain an awareness of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Instead of junk-food, fizzy drinks they consume everyday without a second thought, they will beeducated about their negative effects and proposed to eat traditional and healthy food alternatively. Also schools will compose their own plantation where students cultivate their own vegetables and they will be encouraged to eat vegetable and fruits during breaks. With the sport competitions, opening extra sports courses, Olympics they will be motivated to adapt themselves into a lifestyle with a regular physical activity. We believe that sports should be presented as a pleasurable activity rather than a tedious must in order to adjust it into persons' lives for a life time. In addition the Project will help students from different nationalities investigate each other’s culture and lifestyles through study visits in which they are going to be involved. This will enhance the concept of being citizens of Europe and ability to respect the diversity in communities. Integrating the students and staff into Project activities and mobilities, they will have a contact with other participating countries which they haven’t had at all so far, due to financial constraints or lack of opportunity. Forming a community spirit they will enjoy the experience of working together regardless of religion, race or special needs. We are proud of having a variety of schools committed to the Project allowing us to distinguish and embrace the differences and similarities between cultures, institutions and individuals. A school from 2
  3. 3. BE HEALTHY/ FEEL HAPY SEJA SAUDÁVEL / SINTA-SE FELIZ EB1/JI de Vila Nova da Baronia French Polynesia, on an island in the middle of Pacific Ocean- a school for the special needs in Belgium gaining our students an understanding and sympathy of the handicapped and acceptance them into the society– one school in England and one in Poland, the former is the host country of the Olympics, the latter of the football Euro Cup in 2012, a great chance for our students and teachers to link the topic of sports - a school in Spain which is running the Bilingual Programme, so not only will benefit from the project at a European level but also will have a chance to introduce and promote the usage of programme to other countries developing the quality of the education in them- a school in Italy that will consider the main theme of the Expo 2015 "Feeding the Planet", for encouraging a deep understanding of a healthy style of life- a school in Portugal specialist in growing vegetable- a school in Greece to focus on healthy Mediterranean Diet- and finally the coordinator school in Turkey famous for its rich cuisine. Moreover our students will apply what they have learned in all curriculum areas to their daily lives. They will improve the ability to make connections with lessons to every day life by employing the information they have acquired in health education, biology, P.E., science or geography classes. As English is the tool of communication during the Project, students will have the opportunity to practice their language skills, thus realize the importance of speaking a foreign language and be highly motivated for the subject. Also they will enlarge their vocabulary of other less common European languages like Polish, Turkish, Greek, Dutch through the web site or study visits. Teachers will be able to share, update and improve their teaching techniques with their colleagues all around the continent enhancing the European dimension of education. This will result in raising the standards of education in schools at a European level. Furthermore as a result of their cooperative work friendships will be established which will form the very basis of other projects in the near future. D.3.

F.2. COOPERATION AND COMMUNICATION COOPERATION: The fact that all the countries came together and worked on the project outline at the Preparatory Visit shows how much they are enthusiastic about cooperating with each other to create a healthy Europe. The students will be actively taking part with their peers from other countries either on study visits or networks. In some activities such as in tournaments they will make up teams regardless of origins and compete for a common purpose encouraging the group work. In order to design the e-cookery book, all of them will be asked to send recipes to the project web site or their favorite vegetable/ fruit to make the Vegetable and Fruit Map of Europe. Apart from the cooperation of partners and students, parents will be working together with the school community on some activities such as choosing the traditional recipes to be sent to partners, trying new dishes from other cultures, and help students cook what they have learned on the big festival to be held in Turkey. We would like to extend the cooperation to other local institutions to ensure the impact and effect of the project, so each school has already cooperated with a clinic or health centre for the informative seminars to be given during the project to reinforce and spread the healthy way of living into the wider community. 11

All the partners will share their works, reports and their progress status on their school web-sites and also on the project web-site. - Mobilities will also ensure the effective communication and relationship among partners. - Every school will organise a project board called “Comenius Corner” which aims to show all the work mainly to the school and local community. The board will be constantly updated with the current activities. - Every school will present their international cooperation to the local media. 3. PARTICIPANTS' INVOLVEMENT The fact that our topic is directly related to a positive change in pupils' lifestyles makes them inevitably participate in all the activities. The pupils in cooperation with their teachers are going to choose, plan, search, work out information, collect, discuss, compose, develop a group-working spirit, adopt responsible choices and behaviors on matters of diet, exercise, hygiene and taking care of their bodies. They will develop their ICT skills, communicate with other students from abroad, achieving in this way an opening of their school towards global community and finally realize the need to use a common language as a means of communication with the rest of the world. They will prepare posters, commercials, share ideas and experiences with their friends all around Europe. They will be active in competitions, tournaments held both in other countries and their schools. Active involvement in sports competitions and tournaments will be awarded with medals of attendance encouraging the participations in order to ensure the maximum involvement in each school. They will negotiate and find alternative healthy solutions for the wrong choices of eating habits. Cultivate their own vegetable and fruit in the school gardens. Also they will fill evaluation questionnaires at the end of the project to evaluate the impact of the project. 12
  13. 13. BE HEALTHY/ FEEL HAPY SEJA SAUDÁVEL / SINTA-SE FELIZ EB1/JI de Vila Nova da Baronia All participating staff will be involved in the project meetings in order to plan and evaluate the project’s activities. Staff will coordinate and facilitate students’ participation in all phases of the project. They will also adapt the activities to the real school context. 4. INTEGRATION INTO ON GOING ACTIVITIES The objectives and the contents of the project are in accordance with all our national curriculums, so we will integrate it into our learning activities. Activities: INTERDISCIPLINAR: Every Tuesday we will celebrate “The fruit day”. Every pupil will have to bring fruit for his/her lunch. HEALTHY WEEK, once a year all the schools will celebrate the “Healthy Week” with lots of different activities to develop all together. This activity also includes the participation of all the School Community with activities such as reading books, doctors and dentists seminars for parents and children, cooking recipes, art contests, sports competitions, visits and short trips. SCIENCE: posters and leaflets promoting healthy living, gardening, learning local vegetable and fruits. PHYSICAL EDUCATION: we will learn different games and sports from the other partners, thus understanding the importance of doing sport. Our schools are taking advantage of the 2012 Olympic Games so our children will have a better understanding of the training and the commitment to participate in Olympics and Paralympics Games. We will celebrate Mini Olympics between all the Partners when we visit other Partners schools. In the end of the project we are going to give Prizes and medals to all the pupils participating at the Sports Challenges between all the classrooms. MUSIC: we will learn and create songs and dances related to healthy habits in the "European Show" in the partner school. ART: drawing, painting, production of posters. ICT: creating an e-cookery book in English during the ICT lessons and exchanging by e-mail traditional recipes and information with our partners, searching for materials in Internet, uploading photos to the project web site in order to improve children’s abilities. ENGLISH LANGUAGE: We will encourage our students to talk about healthy habits in this language, apart from getting in touch with all the rest of the languages from the countries involved in the Project, so children will gain a better Intercultural understanding. We will try to implement the English language curriculum with songs, chants which contain health subjects, formulate healthy tips in English, working in pairs and group to develop communicative skills. GEOGRAPHY: fair trade, location of the countries/cities, countries' climate that reflects the sort of food. 13
  14. 14. BE HEALTHY/ FEEL HAPY SEJA SAUDÁVEL / SINTA-SE FELIZ EB1/JI de Vila Nova da Baronia 5. EVALUATION How will you evaluate, during and after the partnership, whether the aims of the partnership have been met and the expected impact has been achieved? All institutions agreed in the use of differents means and different times of evaluation (Initial, Continous and Final) and that this evaluation must be done focusing on all the activities, experiences and sectors from the school community participating in the Project. We will use a wide range of instruments to evaluate the project such as surveys, reports, questionnaires, diaries, meetings, level of participation and discussion. In order to evaluate our Project we have planned the evaluation as follows: - A survey about lifestyles is going to be applied using some questionnaires which are going to be filled by everyone participating in the project. The same questionaire will be applied at the very beginning to know the existing habits and at the end of the Project. Thus, the results will show the impact of the Project and will help us to find out whether or not their habits and attitude towards health issues have been changed by their participation in the Project. - Data collected from the school cafeteria will show us whether a decrease in consuming packed or pre- processed foods has been reached. - The increase in the number of pupils attending table tennis, football, voleyball, folk music, chess courses which are going to be opened to encourage doing sports/exercises will also serve as a concrete proof of evaluation. - Questionnaires about the level of satisfaction of the community will help us to know the right impact of the project. - Each school is going to have self-evaluation throughout the project, having regular meetings ( first Monday every month), reporting and discussing the progress of the activities, sharing the experiences acquired by all the participants and so having the necessary feed-back to make necessary changes. - All the mobilities will include teachers’ evaluation to improve the project. We will evaluate every type of intervention through different instruments, participation on our web, activities, experiences, video conferencing. - The pupils are going to evaluate the programme expressing their ideas through discussions. They also keep diaries during all the progress of the programme. A term report with the pupils' feedback will offer pupils the opportunity to evaluate the project. - In the project web site, there will be "suggestion" and "complain" boxes to express ideas about the project. - The local community involvement in the project is going to be evaluated through its support and participation in the school events. 14
  15. 15. BE HEALTHY/ FEEL HAPY SEJA SAUDÁVEL / SINTA-SE FELIZ EB1/JI de Vila Nova da Baronia F.6. DISSEMINATION AND THE USE OF RESULTS How will you disseminate and use the results, experiences and, where applicable, products of the partnership? - in the participating organisations? - in the local communities? - in the wider lifelong learning community? IN THE PARTICIPATING ORGANIZATIONS : From the start of the project the collective work will be displayed on the “Comenius Corner” boards in each school with pictures, journals, letters, etc. allowing both the staff and outsiders be aware of the work. Project web site will be updated monthly and all visitors will be able to see the calendar and the activities of the Project. Each school will inform the students and their parents about the project and related activities during the ceremonies in the start of new education year. In the meetings, the staff will be informed and updated about the activities regularly. IN THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES: Since we will include students into mobilities, they will share their experiences with their friends and the neighbourhood which will affect the local community very much. In some activities parents will be working with us having being told about the whole process. For the local media and press, mobilities will serve as a great attraction for them, so they will be informed about the activities and outcomes of the Project. At the end of the project the last visit will be to the coordinator school and we are planning to celebrate and disseminate our work with a big festival with the participations of everyone involved in the project as well as the local community, nearby schools and authorities. It will be like a fair area with parents cooking and selling traditional food on stands, students playing the national games of each other, organization of sports tournaments,etc. Also the cooperation work with the clinics, health centres’ in the neighbourhood will be an effective tool for dissemination of the promotion of healthy diet and exercising. Those institutions are going to display and deliver our booklets/posters to the local community. IN THE LIFELONG COMMUNITY: During regular teacher meetings in the area, the teachers who wish to run a Comenius project for their schools will be guided and by sharing our experiences with them they can be enlightened upon the matter. 15
