Bercsényi Miklós Elementary School
Our school, Bercsényi Miklós Általános Iskola, was established in 1906 and has been successfuly operating ever since in downtown Jászberény. Jászberény, with its aprox. 27 000 inhabitants, is a medium-sized rural town in the heart of Hungary, just 80 kilometers south of Budapest. Jászberény is the cultural and economic center of the Jászság region, which comprises of over 15 nearby villages. 42 teachers work in our school and there are 530 attending students between the ages of 6 and 14. The eight grades are divided into two main sections: four lower grades and four upper grades. Every grade has two or three study groups of 25-30 children. The composition of our school is almost 100 per cent Hungarian but our students come from a wide range of social backgrounds.
Our mission as teachers is to educate young generations who will be able to adapt to changing social conditions, to survive in an ever globalizing world, while preserving their nationality, and pride in their nation. The purpose of our school is to provide children with diverse opportunities for mental and physical development. We put great emphasis on individual and mass sports activities and do our best to provide the optimal conditions for physical exercise. We devote a special role to purposeful educational work based on individual responsibility and duty.

is located in the outskirts of Rome. It comprises 3 sections: a kindergarten (3-5 ages), a primary (6-10) and a 1st grade secondary school (11-13) In total: 1200 students The social context is varied. There are pupils with a good standard of living, but also pupils
with learning and behavioral problems. There are immigrants, mostly from Eastern EU Countries and from Asia. We organize many activities to help children integrating in the Italian and EU society. We are involved in a program for disabled or disadvantaged pupils, in danger of social exclusion,
sponsored by the Municipality of Rome. We also have a special curriculum for music: piano, flute,
violin and guitar. There is an orchestra an and all classes have interactive boards. There are computer labs, a pottery lab and a science lab. The students learn English, French or Spanish We have participated in Comenius and Erasmus KA2 projects with mobilities of students and
teachers that gave us the chance to develop many teaching and learning approaches We decided that this project about Volunteering and Active citizenship, is a great challenge for our teachers and pupils, who are willing to work hard for 2 years. Furthermore, they will generate writing and
communication skills across the curriculum, express thoughts, ideas and experiences through written
and oral language, embed ICT in everyday routine, use internet-based applications to document, layout, design and publish pupils' products and to draw inspiration and motivation to include volunteering in the learning process. Stand by ME will make a cultural bridge between 6 countries,
offering pupils and staff the chance to broaden their point of view One of the goals of our school, is to sensitize students to the needs of others. To do this, we give great importance to the idea of volunteering . Our pupils take part in the program “ Studio Assistito" (part of AIRONE PROJECT
VOLUNTEERING) that is “help me, my friend with my homework”, so older students help the younger ones to do their homework Our school works on a National project called "Coloriamo il
nostro Futuro" (Colour our Future) that involves more than 30 schools from all over Italy It is about Citizenship (with the election of " minimayor" among the pupils),Environment, Culture. In this sense, multiculturalism values the peaceful coexistence and mutual respect between different cultures
