From May 22 to May 26 in Antwerp, the penultimate working
meeting was held for the participants of the “Nais” (New Angles
of good practice on Inclusion for all Students) Erasmus+
project. Our representatives, teachers
and Ante Ražnjević,
readily headed off to Belgium while bearing in mind that they
will have to organize the final meeting in Zadar.
Since the project is nearing the finish line, the goal of this
meeting was to analyze and evaluate the second year of the
project and to arrange the final meeting that will be held in
Zadar in October 2018.
The first of the three days was meant for the analysis of the past
two years of the project. All the participants (Belgium, Latvia,
Romania, Croatia) have, during that time, completed various
tasks and fulfilled obligations, the results of which will be
presented at the final meeting.
It was concluded that all the partners have done an excellent job
and have completed all the tasks that were established and
envisaged by the project plan. Also, the booklet in which we
will present the examples of good practice of the inclusion of
all students into the educational processes of our partner
schools in the past two years was analysed.
The first half of our second day of the stay was reserved for the
visit to institutions that take care and educate children with
special needs. We visited the “Rainbow” centre that has been
active for almost 20 years and has been successfully working in
the inclusion of that population of children into the activities
of everyday life.
For the rest of the day, we were busy with the assessment and
evaluation of the accomplished tasks, with special emphasis
being on the plans and stages of the project that were listed in
the application, and their realizations. All content that was
published on the webpages of the NAIS project was taken into
consideration and some alterations and necessary additions were
made. There was a lot of discussion about the involvement of all
the partners and teachers regarding the use od the Twinning
platform in the realization of the project.
The last day of the meeting was devoted to organisation and
planning of the final meeting that will take place in Zadar. Not
only will that be the longest meeting, but also students will,
alongside teachers, take part in it. They will be introduced
with the specificities of our system, the way we work with
students, but also the beauties of our region.
During their stay, the International Day of Inclusion will be
commemorated and the public will get familiarized with the theme
and the realization of the project.
We are only four months away from the next meeting, which will also
be the final one. As the hosts of the largest number of
participants, both students and teachers, we have to use that
time to do our best in order to bring to a successful ending one
of the most demanding projects that our school has taken part in,
and our guests showed part of the beauty of Zadar and Croatia.
