Welcome to Junior High School of Eretria

Eretria Junior High School is taking part for the first time in the ERASMUS+ project called “From raw material to final product:: A contribution to the curriculum development”. The coordinating school is the “Theodor-Frank-Realschule Teningen” in Germany and our other partners are from Finland, Iceland, Spain and Italy.

As part of the project students are asked to research and design a product, identifying the type of raw materials used, considering sustainable design and documenting production processes as well as showing their understanding of environmental issues.

During the project students of our school will describe the procedure of winemaking while bringing the manufacturing experience to life. A lot of wineries are located in Eretria and its surroundings and our students will not only have the opportunity to describe the manufacturing of wine but also to experiment with raw materials and develop them into a final product.

Some of our educational objectives are stimulating curiosity in our students as well as creating skills while communicating in English. We also aim to challenge their abilities in order to explore Europe as a geographic and cultural unit and promote team spirit and awareness about various European issues.

We are getting warmed up in Iceland and then seven more visits –including a welcoming one in Eretria- are taking place:
