SEAN Kelly MEP along with Jim Mullen, Executive Director of Léargas visited Moyderwell Mercy Primary School on Friday to celebrate their inaugural Erasmus+ flag.

The was in recognition of the school’s participation in an Erasmus+ project exploring the teaching of English as a second language.

Funded by the EU, a large number of teachers from the school have undertaken training courses and job shadowing assignments in other European countries during school holidays, to further develop skills and competence in the teaching of English to a diverse student population.

The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU’s strategic framework for education and training.

The students at Moyderwell have also been very involved in the promotion of cultural integration and inclusion through their participation in eTwinning projects with students in both Sweden and the UK.

Teachers are already planning for projects with new partners in countries across the EU for the coming school year.
