Subsequently, a Form 1 class from St.Ignatius College Secondary School and from St.Gorg Preca College, Middle School embarked in this project.

eTwinning Project of the Month: Europe, So Many Faces!

Europe, So Many Faces

By Ms. Marouska Azzopardi Duca – St. Clare College, San Gwann Primary B

Our class 6.3 of San Gwann Primary B, St. Clare College, took part in an eTwinning Project called “Europe: So Many Faces”. It was a perfect name because it involved 35 European countries and their various traditions.

The project started with an introduction video created by all partners. A number of students in our class had fun going around filming and commenting about the school. The next step was to choose five places that tourists would want to visit in our country. We had to illustrate them and present them as a PowerPoint and as a video.  We chose: the Megalithic Temples; St. John’s Co-Cathedral; Verdala Palace; Dwejra and Fort St. Angelo.

Some History

This will be especially interesting for countries with decentralized competences for school education, with more than one official language or a network of schools abroad.
