Why Building Bridges?

When we thought for the first time about an Erasmus+ programme we wanted to find an enough powerful and motivating tool to reach important objectives for our school:

  • To open our rural school to Europe
  • To learn from the experience of other schools and colleagues about the most important aspects we want to improve in our school
  • To use the project to establish a colaborative web of schools, teachers, students and families that can keep working after the project is finished
