Project of the Month

The baroque period - Our shared European heritage

Many European cities have got beautiful baroque palaces, churches and other buildings which are part of our cultural heritage and still play an important role concerning our modern identity. This project will link some of those cities and use the baroque places as starting points for an exploration of the baroque period as an example of our shared European heritage. We intend to use an interdisciplinary approach to portrait cultural life of the baroque period. In the course of the project pupils will experience different facets of life at that time, such as music, dance, architecture, art, literature, theatre, opera, food and science.

Quality Label of the Month
What is the Quality Label?

Human Rights in Europe between Ideal and Reality

The European project partners see Europe as a historical grown community that shares a common system of values, regarding freedom and equality for all human beings as its essential principles. We want to make our students aware of these cultural similarities but also of the fact that these high values are often violated so that there is a necessity for every single member of this community to take responsibility and to protect them in our daily lives. This means that these rights also come along with certain duties and requirements like integration efforts, respect and tolerance instead of exclusion or intolerance. So the project`s aim is not only to make the educative community aware of the importance of human rights by using music, language and arts, but also to respect and defend those rights so as to become constructively critical European citizens.
