Erasmus+ Projects

The Melissa Project

This international two year project will be our next exciting Erasmus + project starting in October 2019.  The overall focus of this project is bees and bee-keeping and establishing a bee-keeping project at our schools.  We also aim to give our pupils an opportunity, thoughout the lifetime of this project to communicate with and visit each other's schools and to present work and learn about different countries and cultures.  Pupils aged 10 - 15 years from Perth in Scotland, The Azores, Thessaloniki in Greece, Verbania in Italy and Voru in Estonia are the partners of the project.  Pupils will take part in a number of collaborative activities including:

-        researching bees
-        designing bee hives
-        performing in a concert relating to bees
-        setting up bee-keeping projects at our schools, keeping journals and photographic records
-        designing and producing merchandise relating to bees

As the project progresses more information will be posted here.  

The pupils who were selected to go on the first Learning, Teaching and Training Activity of the MELISSA beekeeping project on Terceira Island in the Azores kept a diary.  You can see what they wrote here


Eureka! Past, Present & Future!

Eureka - Past, Present and Future! is a project which proposes to foster entrepreneurship, from an early age, and the idea that anyone has the capability of being an inventor. It aims to inspire young people, build on their sense of initiative and show them that through team work, co-operation, hard work and good leadership, they will be the next generation of inventors. It will also provide a detailed training manual for primary school teachers on "The Design Process"  and the practicalities of running such a project in a school situation. 

The project started on 19 September 2016 and ended on 18 November 2018.  For a summary of what we've been up to over the course of year 1, please click here or you can download the video of what we've been up to:
