eTwinning project:»Diversity is our greatest strength»
About the project
The project “Diversity is our greatest strenght” celebrates the diversity of peoples in European schools. We are living in an increasingly diverse world and this is a wonderful gift. Our pupils attend schools with children who are much different and with special needs. Diversity is a normal condition, non a special condition, so we have to teach to our students to accept differences.
Learn about differences help us to seek out cultural activities in our school and to explore the strength and value in diversity. We have to teach about differences of point of views. Accepting differences should be how we live our lives.
To recognizing diversity.
