Approved application!

Under an application approved to the Erasmus+ Programme, proposed by the Parents Association of Hortênsia Diogo Correia Primary School in S. Pedro do Estoril, a transversal project of learning in a natural context will begin in this school, already this school year, which aims to effectively integrate the naturalized outdoor school space in the educational project, involving for this purpose the entire school community and sharing good practices with other schools. The project, entitled “G.R.O.W – Growing Our World inside out”, will be developed in international cooperation with the Belgian school “Sint Paulus” and includes the sharing of experiences and knowledge in this area of outdoor learning.
The project has the support of the Alapraia School Grouping and several associated partners, namely Associação Pigmaleão, Cascais Town Council, Instituto de Apoio à Criança and VITAMINA, partner of the above mentioned Parents Association for the Full-Time Growing programme.
Several initiatives will be developed over two consecutive school years, namely the promotion of classes and extra curricular outdoor activities, capacity building actions for teaching and non-teaching staff, lectures, workshops and a competition of ideas for outdoor educational activities proposed by the whole community that will mark the start of the project.
