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.

PARMA OCTOBER 18TH-20TH_ THIRD TRANSANATIONAL MEETING

During the Third Transnational Meeting in Parma (18th-20th October 2017) the Spanish, Swedish and Norvegian delegations
had the opportunity to enjoy
the local specialities catared
by a local street food track,

to visit the most important 
highlights in Parma

   

and to discover the processing of Parmesan cheese.

The members of the European delegations visited the “Sergio Neri” Kindergarten, the “Anna Frank” Primary School, the “Giacomo Ferrari” Secondary School and the Children Hospital School.
This occasion allowed them to share ideas, opinions and to achieve a better understanding of the Project goals.

Exchange of seeds

ne of the many common activities of the project is called Exchange of seed. The idea of this common activity is to exchange a selected number of seeds between the countries and plant them across borders to see if something will grow. We strongly believe that the seed from Sweden and Norway will grow in Italy and Spain, but we are curious if the opposite will happen. The exchange took place in Bergen when they arranged the mobility for students in September 2017. The Mayor of Bergen was attending the Exchange of seed. The new plants will symbolize both the growth of the project and all the new friendship across borders. The different schools brought different seed into the exchange.

Kaland skole: mixed carrots, cabbage, squash.

Pou de la Muntanya: rosemary, lavender.

Istituto Comprensivo “G. Ferrarri”: tomato, rocket.

Lugnviksskolan: watercress, peas, basil.

PARMA MAY 7th-13th_ MOBILITY FOR STUDENTS

A FANTASTIC WEEK JUST ENDED!

Thanks to the collaboration of 18 families we hosted in our school, the Istituto Comprensivo G.Ferrari, many young students coming from three different European schools: Denia (Spain), Bergen (Norwey) and Östersund (Sweden).

The activities were built on the project: ERASMUS+ “DECONSTRUCTING EDUCATION: CREATIVE AND INCLUSIVE SCHOOLS IN GASTRONOMIC CITIES” financed by the European Community.

This was the first (out of four) students mobility and it tested the methods of work that will characterize the next mobilities.

The students, arrived in group of six with two teachers each, have attended the school lessons, visited our city and enjoyed the traditional and typical places of food production of our province.

In particular, the students visited the historical places of our city (the Cathedral, the Battistero, the Farnese Theatre, the Regio Theatre and the National Gallery), Torrechiara castle, the Ham museum of Langhirano and a cheese factory that produces Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

 In our schools, they attended some lessons and they also took part in some didactical laboratories based on the topic of the project, among these: the laboratory of cooking in the Esprit Centre, with the collaboration of the chef Francesca Montagna and the laboratory on the importance of water in our diet proposed by Maestri del Gusto. 

During the mobility week, the foreign students shared with our Italian students some important activities promoted by our schools such as the performance “Josef” made by the school choir, the sustainable snack, the performance “Odyssey” and the activities of the sportive group of the school Anna Frank.

The mobility ended with a special dinner in which the hosting families with the Italian and foreign students and teachers had a great time together and they strengthened their friendship started with the project.

The activities were organized and lead by a group of teachers of the schools and they involved colleagues and students from different grade of schools during the different steps of this hard and ambitious project. Thanks in particular to our families for their collaboration and sense of hospitality.

This week will be an unforgettable memory in the history of our schools, as also the smiles and the friendships of every students that we met!

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.
