Gunoaiele au fost arse in gropi special amenajate de Consiliul Local. Aceste campanii de curatenie s-au derulat in fiecare an, primavera si toamna si au devenit déjà o traditie.

  • 22. Bilant Valoarea adaugata a fost incomesurabila. Participarea la acestproiect a oferit oportunitati unice, atat pentru dezvoltarea profesionala catsi personala, prin schimbul de experiente, e-mailuri, probe de lucru,prezentari, fotografii si vizite. Membrii au avut posibilitatea - prin vizite - sa vada personal altescoli din tari europene , sa compare pedagogia, metodologiile, cultura,obiceiurile, sa impartaseasca experientele si sa dezvolte relatii cu alti pro-fesori din Comunitatea Europeana. Mai precis, membrii au avut ocazia saimpartaseasca idei despre Durabilitate si Mediu. Oportunitatile culturaleoferite de fiecare scoala pentru vizitatori au fost uimitoare si au aratatmembrilor o imagine de ansamblu asupra tarii “reale”, spre deosebire deimaginea oferita de o experienta de vacanta. Ca rezultat al proiectului, intreaga comunitate scolara a inteles inmod real ca dezvoltarea sustenabila este o preocupare europeana/globalasi ca alte scoli din Europa se implica individual pentru imbunatatirea pro-gramului “Educatie pentru Dezvoltare Durabila.” Fiecare scoala a benefi-ciat, fara indoiala,de pe urma schimbului de experiente intre scolilepartenere.Elevii au avut, deasemeni, sansa sa accepte si sa inteleaga alte culturi sinationalitati prin intalnirile cu membri tuturor scolilor partenere si prinvizionarea prezentarilor PowerPoint, a obiectelor si fotografiilor.Astfel ,li s-a oferit prilejul sa observe asemanarile si deosebirile dintrescoli si activitatile care apartin de EDD desfasurate in fiecare scoala. Intreaga experienta Comenius a fost de nepretuit atat personal cat siprofesional, precum si pentru comunitatea scolara ca intreg. (Din Raportul final al coordonatorului de proiect – Elaine Doherty,21 Irlanda de Nord.)
  • 23. Project survey The added value was immeasurable. Participating in this partnership pro-vided unique opportunities for both professional and personal developmentthrough the exchange of good practice, e-mails, samples of work, presenta-tions, photographs and visits. Staff had an opportunity through visits to see first-hand other schools inother European countries and compare curriculum, pedagogy, methodologies,culture, habits, share good practice and develop good relations with otherteachers within European Community. More specifically staff were able toshare curricular ideas on Sustainability and Environmental ideas. The culturalopportunities provided by each school for their visitors was amazing and reallygave staff an insight to the “real” country as opposed to the “holiday destina-tion” experience. As a result of the project whole school community has a first-hand reali-zation that sustainable development is a European/global concern and thatother schools across Europe are all playing their part to improve Education forSustainable Development in their individual schools. Each school has withoutdoubt benefitted from the sharing of expertise and knowledge with each of thepartner schools. Pupils have also had the opportunity to develop attitude of tolerance andunderstanding of other cultures and nationalities through meeting the stafffrom each of the schools and seeing their PowerPoint presentations, artifactsand photographs.This gave them the opportunity to see the similarities and differences betweenschools and the ESD activities undertaken in each school. The whole Comenius experience has been invaluable personally and pro-fessionally and for the school community as a whole. (From the Final Report of the Project coordinator – Elaine Doherty, Northern Ireland.) 22
  • 24. Bilant Principalele obiective ale parteneriatului au fost: - A se compara asemanarile si diferentele intre comunitatile scolare lanivel global in ceea ce priveste utilizarea energiei in intreaga comunitate sco-lara – fiecare scoala a avut “Energia” ca subiect EDD pentru proiect. - A se examina si modifica comportamentele si obiceiurile in ceea cepriveste utilizarea energiei in intreaga comunitate scolara – au fost infiintateComitetele ECO reprezentand clasele din intreaga scoala. Comitetele s-au in-talnit la interval regulate pentru a discuta si sugera idei in ceea ce priveste re-ducerea consumului de energie si a costurilor. Ei au impartasit ideile cu restulcomunitatii scolare prin intalniri in scoala si buletine informative. - A se introduce modalitati de reducere a consumului de energie in scoalasi a se promova masurile implementate in comunitatea scolara si in cea locala– fiecare scoala a intreprins un studiu asupra comportamentelor si obiceiurilordin intreaga scoala si a introdus strategii pentru reducerea consumului de ener-gie. - A se reduce consumul de energie in scoala, la nivel local si global, prinintermediul unor modificari individuale: numirea unor supraveghetori, moni-torizarea consumului de energie in fiecare scoala de catre elevi si profesori. - A se include o retea precum “Connect” pentru compararea obiceiurilor sicomportamentelor in ceea ce priveste transportul in raport cu comunitatea sco-lara – toate scolile au contribuit la proiectul “Connect” prin monitorizarea de-plasarii elevilor la scoala. Ne propunem sa comparam actiunile si sa prezentam activitatile noastreprin intermediul unei retele existente – toate scolile au comunicat activitatilelor proiectului “Connect” si fiecareia dintre scolile partenere prin e-mail, foto-grafii, rapoarte, prezentari si vizite in scoli. (Din Raportul final al coordonatorului de proiect – Elaine Doherty,23 Irlanda de Nord.)
  • 25. Project survey The main objectives of our partnership were to: - To compile similarities and differences between school communities glob-ally in relation to use of energy in the whole school community – each schooltook “Energy” as an ESD topic for the project. - To examine and change habits and behaviours in relation to use of energyin the whole school community – ECO Committies were set up in each schoolrepresenting classes throughout the school. They met at regular intervals to dis-cuss and suggest ideas regarding reducing energy consumption and costs. Theypresented their ideas to the rest of the school community through assemblies andnewsletters. - To introduce ways to reduce energy use in school and promote action takenin the school community and local community – each school undertook a studyof their whole school habits and behaviours and introduced strategies to reduceenergy consumption. - To reduce energy use in school, locally and globally through our individualschool changes – building supervisors, teachers and pupils have monitored en-ergy consumption in each school. - To include a network like “Connect” to compare the transportation habitsand behaviours related with school community – all school contributed to theconnect project by monitoring pupil travel to school. In my own school we alsosupport Walk to School Week and continue to encourage walking to school ortravelling by bicycle throughout the year. We plan to compare our actions and present our activities through an exist-ing network – all schools communicated their activities to connect and to eachpartner school through e-mail, photos, files of evidence, presentations and schoolvisits.
