From 14th May to 20th May 2017, we (five students selected among 22 schoolmates in the Erasmus+ Italian team) have been in Petra, on the Greek island of Lesvos, to take part of the second meeting of the international Erasmus+ project (“Every Child Matters – Refugees And Immigrants In Education“). During the week, we had the opportunity to meet a lot of important people, such as Mr. Antonis Kelaiditis, President of the Town Council, and Ms. Georgia Kokkinogeni, the headmistress of Petra’s Junior High School, teacher of Ancient/Modern Greek and History. Also, we’ve been able to improve our English by having conversations and socializing with boys and girls from the other three countries (Portugal, England, Turkey) and we’ve been working in groups to write and illustrate our own original stories about immigration, a phenomenon which is sadly becoming really common in many European countries. At school, in the afternoon, we presented the products we prepared for the trip when we were in Italy and mostly in the morning we visited a lot of interesting and cultural places near Petra (A castle in Molivos, a small town but still one of the most important and popular commercial zones on the whole island; A ruined Greek temple and a church). Also, a specialized instructor taught us four traditional local dances and on Thursday night, when we had the farewell dinner, we used the recently gained experience to dance with a group of experts! It was really enjoyable and funny and it was great to learn interesting things about this country, its uses and costumes, but on the last day, it was hard for all of us to leave and say goodbye to our new friends, because this trip let us meet teenagers just like us from all over the world, and we’re sure everybody would have taken our places if they had the chance to.

Meet Film Festival

 di Ferdinando Ambrosino (III D) e Amedeo  Migliore (III B)


October 1st 2016 was the day we students from two different classrooms and our teachers travelled  to  Mazara del  Vallo to compete in  an  international  annual event, the Meet Film Festival, representing our school with a short movie about the immigration phenomenon, where we used voices, images and videos to show our solidarity and the way it interests us. We were in the ‘Sicily Category’ but there were stunning and professional animations and clips that really let us breathless. We watched other participants’ movies and we attended the prizegiving. We didn’t win a prize but we returned home feeling proud of ourselves for living this unforgettable experience and for having the opportunity to meet important directors and special guests. All of us, including the ones who didn’t go to the festival, are now happy to be one of the contest’s finalist and to be in a famous short.




Tutti insieme ci rechiamo a Mazara Del Vallo per la cerimonia di premiazione e chiusura del Festival




Dopo un’attenta lettura della Storia di Malala, abbiamo voluto dare il nostro modesto contributo alla diffusione delle vicende di questa giovane eroina che, pur di difendere i propri diritti e quelli di tutti noi bambini e delle donne, ha rischiato la propria vita e tuttora è costretta a vivere lontano dal proprio paese e dalle proprie origini.

Grazie  Malala, perché sei un grande esempio di coraggio nonostante la tua giovane età.
