The CEIP El Tostón school chooses multiculturalism through an international educational programme

The CEIP El Tostón school in El Cotillo has launched the project called ''Share'itage: we share our heritage'', an initiative that also includes two schools in France and one in Italy. The project that is included in the Erasmus Plus programme, aims at promoting inclusion, integration and multiculturalism through ''Discovery, promotion and exchange of European cultural heritage''. To be exact, ''Share'itage'' involves pupils who are aged between 6 and 13 years old from the primary schools of Jaille en Baie-Mahault (Guadeloupe, France), Bourg de Mouguerre (Nouvelle Aquitaine, France), primary and secondary school of Giuseppe Lombardo Radice (Sicily, Italy) and the CEIP El Tostón, and proposes to develop activities that involve the whole educative communities from the pupils to their families, local associations, handcraft makers, artists and even local producers. Students from the school took their first trip within the project with a trip to Guadeloupe. During this first encounter with the pupils from the foreign schools, they took part in various activities in order to discover the heritage of Guadeloupe that is closely linked to their African, Indian, Syrian and Lebanese roots. The second trip of the programme, in Fuerteventura, will concentrate on heritage elements from the local folklore and Canarian gastronomy and their origins; in Italy, the third encounter of the international programme, students will discover the literature, archaeological and historical heritage of Siracusa. Finally, the final encounter will take place in Mouguerre-Bourg, where they will talk about the conclusions of ''Share'itage'' and students will study the heritage of the Basque Country, closely related to the language, tales and legends, as well as local celebrations and games. The international project stems from the 2018 declaration as ''European year of cultural heritage'' and the objective of promoting the local heritage.
