Project INCLUDE

 

Op 18 september zullen 7 leerlingen uit het VO vergezeld van 3 docenten vertrekken naar Ravenna in Italië om daar aan een vervolgmeeting van het internationale project INCLUDE deel te nemen. Centraal in het project staat o.a. de positie en integratie van sociale minderheden in de samenleving. Daarbij speelt ook het thema vluchtelingen een rol.

De leerlingen hebben zich goed voorbereid en hebben daarvoor contact gezocht en onderzoek gedaan naar vrijwilligersorganisaties die zich hier mee bezig houden. De resultaten worden daar gedeeld en het thema wordt in Italië verder uitgewerkt. Dat alles gebeurt in het Engels.

Noa de Haan, Ole Batterink, Luuk Altena, Sophie Pieters, Lucca van Schubert, Thirza van Enkhuijzen en Lienke Welink zullen Groene Welle daar vertegenwoordigen. Begeleiders zijn mevrouw Dullemond, mevrouw Woltinge en meneer Roosken.

Persbericht – Zwolle, 1 februari 2018

 

Leerlingen Groene Welle naar Litouwen

 

Hoe betrek je meer mensen bij de maatschappij? Voor een antwoord op die vraag vertrekken zes derdejaars leerlingen vo van Groene Welle uit Zwolle op 5 februari naar Litouwen. Tijdens hun 7 daagse bezoek aan Siauliai slapen ze bij gastgezinnen, volgen ze lessen aan het Lieporiai Gymnasium, geven ze presentaties over Groene Welle, Nederland en ICT gebruik in de school en bezoeken ze initiatieven voor (jonge) mensen die buiten de boot zijn gevallen. Het bezoek vindt plaats in het kader van het Europese Erasmus+ uitwisselingsproject Include.

 

In dit uitwisselingsproject staat dit jaar het thema Integratie en respect voor andere culturen centraal. De derdeklassers van de Groene Welle werken binnen hierin samen met leeftijdsgenoten uit Litouwen, Griekenland en Italië. De reizen naar Griekenland en Italië zijn inmiddels achter de rug. In april 2017 gingen de leerlingen in Griekenland op bezoek bij een kliniek, waar artsen één dag per week vrijwillig werken zodat ook vluchtelingen gebruik kunnen maken van gezondheidszorg. In Italië bezochten ze in september 2017 een zeilschool die door gehandicapten wordt gerund en een restaurant waar ex-verslaafden en minderjarige vluchtelingen een vak leren om zo aansluiting bij de maatschappij te vinden.

 

In april komen leerlingen uit de drie andere landen naar Zwolle. De leerlingen van de Groene Welle presenteren dan een plan om jongeren die eenzaam zijn mee te laten draaien in de maatschappij. Ook staan een bezoek aan een verpleeghuis en de Voedselbank op het programma. De Groene Welle doet mee aan het uitwisselingsproject omdat ze het belangrijk vindt dat leerlingen kennis maken met andere culturen. Daarnaast zien ze andere buitenlandse scholen van binnen en leren ze het leven in het gastland in hun gastgezinnen van dichtbij kennen. Tijdens de uitwisselingen worden vaak stevige vriendschappen geboren. De bezoeken worden begeleid door docenten. Elke uitwisseling gaan andere leerlingen mee.

Report of the LTTA at AOC de Groene Welle in Zwolle,

The Netherlands

from April 15th until April 21st, 2018

 

The meeting and the activities were carried out as planned in the timetable.

 

Sunday April 15th:

All the guests arrived at the train station in Zwolle. They were welcomed by their hosts and members of the Include project group.

 

Monday April 16th:

All the participants were welcomed at the school by Mr. R. van Kuilenburg, Chairman of the board of AOC de Groene Welle. He explained why international projects are considered to be a very important part of the curriculum and told the guests about the school. After this welcome students of de Groene Welle presented the Dutch educational system and de Groene Welle to their guests. The presentation was followed by a tour through the school building in Zwolle. In the afternoon lessons were attended by students and teachers. This gave them a bit of an insight into the way of teaching at de Groene Welle.

In the evening a welcoming dinner was organized for the guests at one of the Dutch teachers’ home in Zwolle. Students enjoyed their free time with the host families.

 

Tuesday April 17th:

After arriving at school students actually attended and participated in lessons according to the schedule of their hosts.

Teachers had a project meeting. The programme of the meeting in Zwolle was discussed and agreements about dissemination and end evaluations were made. (products should be uploaded in the website and in the Twin-Space of the project). The Greek partner will upload all output. It should be sent by email to her by all partners.

The end report has to be written by Italy (coordinator of the project).

Presentations used during the meeting will be uploaded into the website by the

Netherlands. Greece will put them in e-twinning

After lunch the students made the final preparations for the presentations of the project MEETEN. After the preparations had finished, the student workgroups presented their ideas on how to make the project MEETEN work and become a success. It was surprisingly nice to see how the different partner schools had dealt with this task from different views. In using IT tools, advice on how to do this efficiently and safely was given.

Students and teachers had time of their own in the evening.

 

 

 

Wednesday April 18th

At 8.30 everyone gathered in the classroom to receive information about the visit to the foodbank in Zwolle. The trip to the foodbank was done by means of a typical Dutch way of transport: the bicycle.

At the foodbank the structure, way of working and aims were explained. After the tour through the building students and teachers actively took part in preparing the baskets of food.

Back at school everyone had lunch.

After lunch students and teachers got instructions about the visit to the Zonnehuis, a care centre for elderly and mentally disabled people. Presentations about the care and the centre itself was given by employees of the centre. After this students were invited to have a walk around the neighbourhood with some clients of the centre. All participants enjoyed the walk very much.

Today the main aims were to learn about Inclusion and the way the city of Zwolle is dealing with this social problem and to participate actively in this.

 

The evening was spent in the host families and the teachers spend their free time in Zwolle.

 

Thursday April 19th

In the morning a meeting with the city counsil of Zwolle was planned. Therefor the group was invited at the city hall and welcomed into the council chamber. After receiving some information about Zwolle and the way the city of Zwolle is dealing with inclusion and prevention of exclusion, the way a Dutch city counsil deals with and takes decisions on issues was presented by means of a roleplay. In this roleplay students and teachers actively performed as a city counsil and decided on how to deal with the problem of refugees from Syria coming to Zwolle.

After this “Kick off” Harry van Bommel, former member of the Dutch parliament, led the group into a discussion about several initiatives undertaken in Zwolle.

“Zwolle doet!” is one of the initiatives and they were present at the meeting.

They received some valuable tips from the students.

Discussed were: the initiatives of the city counsil; the way some of the issues were dealt with in Italy, Greece and Lithuania; advice of students on improving Zwolle’s initiatives. Next to that the city counsil got a valuable insight into the way of life of the students of all the partner schools.

The afternoon was spent in Zwolle. Dutch students had prepared an informative tour through Zwolle. Part of the tour took them through Zwolle by boat on the canals.

 

In the evening a farewell dinner was organized in one of the restaurants in Zwolle. There was the opportunity to dance, eat and do some bowling. Certificates were handed out.

 

 

Friday April 20th

 

This day the group went to Amsterdam for a cultural visit. Students and teachers were informed about the Dutch history in the ages of the VOC. In the Amsterdam dungeons they were put into several situations. By playing a part in these situations performed by actors, they actively experienced the way people lived in these days.

 

After this experience the Rijksmuseum was visited. Here they had a close look at paintings from famous Dutch painters (eg. Rembrandt).

The day ended with some free time to spend in the historical centre of Amsterdam.

After the return to Zwolle, Dutch students had organized a BBQ for their guests in one of the students’ garden.

 

Saturday April 21st

 

During the day all guests said goodbye and left from train station Zwolle on their trips home.
