The HIMIS partners met for the fourth partnership meeting in Bristol, United Kingdom. Our venue was the SS Great Britain, a historic ship that is one of Britain’s most interesting heritage sites.
Each of the schools is progressing well with developing their projects. The teachers are working with groups of students aged between 11 and 18 and from a great variety of backgrounds. The Marco Gavio Apicio school in Anzio is developing a tour of a local park, that is also an archaeological site, exploring it through touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell. The 3rd Genyko Likeyo in Kerkyra, Corfu, is exploring heritage at five sites through story telling, an interactive tour, recording, photography and drama. The Zespół Szkół nr 6 in Wroclaw is discovering the stories of the Town Hall through photography, drama, a blog and a guided tour. The Kastelbergschule in Waldkirch is researching the stories of the town’s organ building and fairground industries.
The visit included a guided tour of SS Great Britain, which was the first iron ship to be driven by steam with a screw propeller, and was the largest ship in the world when it was built.
