International Migrants Day in Italy

On the 18th of December, students at D’Alessandro – Vocino school gathered to celebrate the International Day of Immigration. They saw the film “Terraferma”.

On the island of Linosa, some fishermen are punished for having saved some immigrants who arrived illegally by sea in Italy. The young Filippo doesn’t want to remain still before an emergency of such proportions and decides to help a mother, his son and a new-born to escape, careless of the danger to which he exposes himself.

 

 

After the film they took part in the debate about immigration and asked questions to their foreign schoolmates about their experience and hard life to get to Italy and all the problems and sacrifices they had to face in a new country. All of the foreign students told about how they have well integrated and their projects for the future. They hope, one day, to go back to their roots but with better life conditions.

EuropeanEqual International Stand Up to Bullying Day 

In November, the Erasmus Team of Naoussa worked for the International Day against discriminations due to sex and/or sexual orientation. Through a common paper, the team shared information and knowledge on the subject, was sensitized and came to conclusions and future behaviours appropriate for people that respect equality and defend the right to being different. Several ideas were developped on how to communicate the subject to the rest of the students, such as through posters, video-comics etc
