An olive tree for “ANEN-E+”

by Spain

Last wednesday, 9/3/2016, the students of the PFCB (a basic studies for vocational training qualification) of Wood of our high school, IES Leonardo da Vinci of Alicante, took part in our program ERASMUS+, ANEN: “Active in Nature, Enjoying the Nature”, planting the tree that will symbolise the values of our project: Cooperation, friendship, tolerance and commitment to the environment.

Firstly, we explained them what the European Union and the ERASMUS + programs mean, especially, we showed the objectives and the activities that we are going to do during the Spanish meeting in relation to our project. The students loved the outdoor activities and wanted to participate in everything. Secondly, they made two murals about Tabarca Island and the olive tree.

It was one of the best experiences I have had as a teacher, because this is a group with special needs and they did their best, working hand by hand with other students of our high school. I loved their creativity and their enthusiastic attitude.

Finally, we went out to plant the olive tree with other students of the Project. Thank you very much, guys!

Students working together and the final product.
