Last transnational meeting in Dénia

This week, in Pou de la Muntanya school, in Dénia, the last of the transnational coordination meetings of the Erasmus + KA2 #TastingSchools project has been made. In it, teachers from Kaland Skole from Bergen (Norway), Lugnviksskolan from Östersund (Sweden) and Giacomo Ferrari Institute from Parma (Italy) participated.

After two years of shared work, it’s time to finish this interesting project that has been co-financed by the Erasmus + program of the European Union. During this time, we have developed four thematic blocks: Let’s visit, Let’s cook, Let’s move and Art & Cooking, each with several sections: research, visits to the environment and use of new technologies.

During the meeting, we evaluated the mobility of students and teachers, held last week in Dénia, and we have been working with the booklet that will collect examples of everything we have worked during these months. Also, we worked and discussed about the final report that must be drawn up to send to the Erasmus + National Agency.

The cultural program of the week has included the approach to our culinary culture and the singularities of Dénia as a Creative City of Gastronomy declared by UNESCO.

Formative Mobility of Students – Dénia

Students from the Kaland Skole in Bergen (Norway), the Giacomo Ferrari Institute in Parma (Italy) and the Lugnviksskolan in Östersund (Sweden) have been visiting, from June 3 to 9, the city of Dénia, welcomed by families and students of the public school Pou de la Muntanya.

The school exchange, framed within the Erasmus + #TastingSchools project, which coordinates the school from Dénia, is the last of the ten training and coordination mobility programs programmed on the project. 72 students and 46 teachers have been able to participate in the different training trips carried out over these two years, as well as know and learn in the four schools, all of them belonging to Creative Cities of Gatronomy declared by UNESCO.

During their stay in Dénia, they have been able to enjoy a complete training program, which has allowed them to carry out activities in the school, visiting the marine reserve of Cap de Sant Antoni by catamaran, participating in a kitchen workshop at Samaruc restaurant (with chefs Ismael Bilbao and Federico Guajardo) learning the “Dansà de Dénia” or visiting the city of València (both gothic monuments and the City of Arts and Sciences).

Also, the Mayor of Dénia, Vicent Grimalt, and the Education Councilor, Rafa Carrió, received the group of students and their teachers, giving way to the visit to the city offered by technicians from the office of Dénia Creative City. This was a good time to get to know the Market, the cherry sample offered there, and places such as the Toy Museum or the Ethnological Museum.

A special mention deserves the nine families that hosted the students. A whole week of experiences where you could visit the beaches, the Montgó Natural Park or the Castle and where the ties that unite the four cities were greatly narrowed.

To finish the week, the school’s end event went ahead to offer a taste of our culture to the students visiting, and to dance with the Valencian folk group “Tres fan Ball”. A luxury finish for an unforgettable week.

Östersund stay report

Östersund stay at Lugnvisksskolan school is framed in the series of transnational meetings scheduled in the framework of Tasting Schools Project, coordinated by Pou de la Muntanya School. After the meeting in Dénia last October, team members from IC Ferrari (Parma), Kaland Skole (Bergen) and Dénia met in Lugnviksskolan (Östersund) in order to perform four actions related to the project.

First, each present member introduced dynamics undertaken by each school so far. Then, they proposed new activities and strategies. Subsequently, they moved to assess the evolution of the program, in order to detect possible shortcomings and suggest possibilities for implementation of the quality of the work in the short and medium term. Finally, a session was devoted to organizing programs of mobility between teachers and students for the coming months.

The meeting also allowed knowing first-hand the functioning and organization of the host school, including classes with students of different levels.

They formed part of the welcome team and participated actively in the development of our stay. Along with them, the participants in the meeting had the opportunity to check the impact of the Erasmus project in different areas of the building, dedicated to highlight it, as the mobile library or playgrounds. In this sense, even the canteen gained prominence, since we were able to observe there the implementation of healthy habits, exchange views and talk with students, chefs and teachers.

THE EXPECTED ACADEMIC OUTPUTS

In this context, the expected outputs are the following: projecting visits with students to prestigious restaurants; attending Chefs conferences; organizing fishing, grilling and “tasting the fish” activities; creating haikus; working nutritional and healthy habits; visiting museums of the city and international cooking schools; scheduling a Tasting Lab and a Science Project aimed to the study of vegetables, fruits and berries; doing «the seeds project»; writing a collaborative tale; and vegetable markets; travelling Europe in two classrooms; engaging families in kitchen sessions, and students in Skype exchanges, and implementing school gardens and the practice of traditional and local games.

As can be seen from this report, all of these objectives will undoubtedly benefit this interdisciplinary project, as this series of meetings, ultimately, made it possible to communicate, discuss and resolve key issues for optimal monitoring of Tasting Schools.

Round of Skypes: Parma – Dénia

These days, Dénia and Parma students have begun to communicate by Skype videoconferences.  The aim of the activity is known among the parterns.

Pou de la Muntanya School students, in Dénia, could talk with the Anna Frank School students, the Giacomo Ferrari Institute and the Hospital Scholar Unit in Parma.


It was a very enriching experience and a good opportunity to practice English.


It was a fun experience, we will continue with the talks and hope to speak to students from other countries as well.

On the other hand,  five years old students enjoyed a conversation with five years old students in Parma.

Here’s a part of the conversation:
Our students greeted with typical Italian “Bongiorno”
Then Parma students were presented one by one and everyone told us what they liked most, and we danced with a song:
We sang a song in English that Teacher Joan had taught.

And finally we said goodbye until next time.

We want to repeat it.

Kick off #Tastingschools

Kick off #Tastingschools


Wednesday 11th January, there was a great activity at school when the project #Tastingschools kicked off.

Wednesday 11th January, Teachers prepared a large fruit and vegetable market in the main hall, where the students got a good presentation of all 50 kinds of vegetables. It was also an opportunity to smell, taste a bit and take away all the vegetables.

The students from 7th grade had “Taste Workshop” in the kitchen. They presented dishes based on vegetables. Pupils and adults got to taste ratatouille, lime marinated cucumber, beetroot, with blueberries and a green smoothie. Not all students thought everything was nice as well, but all the students tasted everything. The green smoothie was a clear favourite.

On the red room, the project was presented to the students. Participating cities were presented and objectives of the project were reviewed. Engaged pupils asked many good questions.

It was a great day for everyone at school.
