We do care children!

San Cipirello/Italy

Istituto comprensivo di san Cipirello
      Our school is in San Cipirello, a little town near Palermo, the capital city of Sicily, an island in the south of Italy. Our school includes pupils from 3 to 13 years old. However we thought to involve in this project the staff and students  from junior high school. We are 22 teachers and 229 students from 10-13 years old. We have got 11 classrooms with multimedia interactive whiteboards, a computer room, an art room, a music room, a library, a gym, a conference room and a video room. San Cipirello is a small town, where teenagers have almost nothing to do. Some of our students practise soccer or have dancing lessons after school, but the most of them just hang around the streets and only a few realizes the importance of education. We would like to give to all our students the possibility to improve their life, not only through education, but even through the awareness and acceptance of some values such as legacy, honesty and human respect. That is why we would like to be a part of this project, we really think that our students are the future of Europe and that they should start thinking of being part of something bigger than their small, little town. We hope they will fall in love with knowledge through the experiences of different cultures.
