Hi Justyna ,
Yes you right .I believe in our project and ı hope we get qualıty label and also Europan qualıty label also .If two country get two qaulıty label the Europan qualıty labels given automatically .After enough coıntribition ı will apply for the label .This may be ın end of June .
I want to share with you :These requirements are:



1. The project must have common goals and a shared plan.

2. It must be finished, or in its last stages.

3. The applying teacher must have made a significant contribution to the project.

4. A certain degree of collaboration must appear.

5. Project results must be visible.



Once these 5 requirements are met, the project is then evaluated on the six criteria required.



What are the criteria? A project has to broadly achieve excellence in the following areas:



(1) Pedagogical Innovation and Creativity

(2) Curricular Integration

(3) Collaboration between partner schools

(4) Use of technology

(5) Sustainability and Transferability,

(6) Results and Benefits.



EUROPEAN QUALITY LABEL – No need to apply!



The European Quality Label is a second mark of success. From October 2012 it will be awarded by the Central Support Service to schools in a project which:



1. Have been proposed for the European Quality Label by at least one National Support Service, after a screening process.



2. That at least two partners have already received the National Quality Label. The European Quality Label is awarded only once a year and is featured on the eTwinning Portal.



You must have a European Quality Label to participate in the European eTwinning Prizes competition
If we take into consideration these points we will be more successful .

Inci, I know the procedures emoticon it wa easier to get European Quality Label before October 2012 - it was enough if 2 partners got National QL and EQL was given automatically. Now you also need to be chosen/nominated by your NA (in Polad they choose 30% of projects - and there are thousands of Polish projects on eT) ... But I hope that our project will get it emoticon

 Hi  everybody:)

 

I've come across  a tool that I find useful in our project.  It's called AnswerGarden. I prepared 2 examples of it for you to have a look and try it. You and each of your students can answer the questions by just typing your first associaton with the word "POLAND" and "MALTA". If you like it I will prepare similar things for other countries in the project :)

Siggiewi Primary was previously located in the building now hosting the Local Council and other offices at the village square. The present school was built as a primary and a girls’ secondary school but later it began to host only kindergarten and primary pupils. In the year 2000 the school was named after Patri Guze’ Delia, a prominent Maltese poet whose statue was recently erected adjacent to the School Hall.

 

 

The school forms part of St Ignatius College and is situated in a modernised building with large play areas including a 5-a-side synthetic turf pitch and a kinder soft-carpeted area, a state-of-the-art auditorium and welcoming landscaped surroundings.

The school hosts approximately 450 pupils in ten kindergarten classes and seventeen primary. Kindergarten is a playschool which specialises in Learning through Play, with well equipped indoor and outdoor play areas, sand/water play, home and role-play corner, drama/story telling sessions, rhymes and songs. The building hosts also a separate Child Care Centre.

Primary subjects are Maltese, English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Religion and Social Studies, but great importance is also given to Arts and Crafts, Music, Drama, Information Technology, Physical Education, Personal and Social Development and Thinking Skills.

Other support is given through guidance sessions, library skills sessions, core-competences and complementary teaching in Literacy and Numeracy. Special Rooms for the visiting School Counsellor, the Speech and Language Pathologist, the School Nurse and Doctor, the Occupational Therapist are also available. Other special rooms are the Special Education Resource Centre with touch screen computer and other specialised apparatus and the School Library which can host a full class and provides thousands of books and other resources, namely videos, dvds, audio cassettes, big books, teacher resources, four computer workstations with an A3 printer and an Interactive Whiteboard.

All this aims at providing a holistic education to our pupils. Various activities are organised throughout the Scholastic Year. At kinder level, the Teddy Bear Hospital aims at training Kindergarten pupils to look at the medic as a friend. Kidlympics improves their physical skills and hand-eye co-ordination amongst others.

At Primary level, besides the out-of-school lessons according to Year group syllabi, a myriad of activities are offered. A holistic healthy lifestyle policy is put into practice through the Walking Bus where pupils walk to school in an organised manner. The Brain Gym during the morning assembly is complemented with well-planned Physical Education sessions by class and peripatetic teachers. Other sports activities are organised by KMS after school hours, and Sports Day is an annual occasion. The school takes part in College-based and national sporting activities like Tag Rugby and Futsal tournaments. Healthy eating sessions and cooking is organised throughout in the Food Preparation Room.

Special end-of-Primary activities for Year 6 pupils include a week-end visit to Gozo, a fully-fledged stage production for Celebration Day and a Farewell activity with lunch. Recently the Moving On College based Celebration was also added to these.

The school was awarded the Green Flag three years ago for its efforts in ecological education. Last year the Green Flag was awarded for the second time. Activities vary from Flick the Switch to Waste Separation and Compost production.

Two book fairs are organised annually. During Library Week, authors are invited to talk and discuss with pupils about their work and books, competitions and exhibitions are organised at school level, but pupils are encouraged to take part in national competitions, especially the book competition organised by the Malta School Library Association and the SLS.

Many religious activities are organised by the school. St Nicholas Feast on the 6th of December and First Holy Communion Celebration are just two of them. A monthly mass is said in the School Hall or at theParishChurch.

The school was one of the first to take part in Comenius Projects in Malta. Last project was finalised in June 2011 with 9 partners from around Europe and together they published a book about Europeentitled ABC Book of Young Europeans. Staff and pupils travelled abroad to discuss matters, and work on each chapter was continuous throughout the scholastic year.

Pupil participation is part and parcel of the school life with three main committees namely the School Newsletter Committee made up of pupils from Year 4 to 6 who edit and produce the quarterly publication, the Ekoskola committee and the Pupils’ Council.

Parents are important stakeholders in the school. Besides the open door policy we also find their help through the Parents Circle, which is captained by the parents sitting on the School Council. They provide precious backing for the school administration in various activities.

Besides the Healthy Lifestyle Policy, other policies which pave the way for holistic education are the Homework, Language, Outings, Special Education Policy amongst others. An extra effort is presently being exerted on the use of English throughout the school days by one and all. Special attention is also being given to Literacy Support through the Core Competences checklists from the first years, together with Complementary Teaching so that any problems are diagnosed and treated immediately. Another important factor is differentiated teaching, now that all classes are of mixed ability. Teachers are being trained better to diversify their teaching methods according to the pupils’ various abilities and learning patterns. The use of I.T. in general and Interactive Whiteboards, where available, across the curriculum is a sine qua non. It is planned that all classes would have IWB by this scholastic year.

The school boasts also of a History of Education Museum which was inaugurated in 2010. This is made up of two rooms, one in the form of an old classroom, with blackboards, desks, pedagogic apparatus for all subjects, old school bags, copybooks, other stationery and realia; the second room presents a Headmaster’s Office with a library, old sound, projection and copying apparatus, together with registers, other manuscripts and documents dating back to 1855.
