Why Building Bridges?

Our school is located in a  socially and economically disadvantaged area and most of our students have limited possibilities to get to know other European countries, cultures and ways of living.

We want to help our students

  • to experience European values
  • to widen their horizon by engaging in intercultural encounters

Furthermore, we aim at

  • exchanging innovative practices and teaching methods
  • creating a network between teachers, students and school staff to implement the European spirit in our everyday school life.
