SP 199 has been involved in a successful Comenius project before. This has been a fantastic opportunity for all staff, parents and children to understand the world in a wider context and travel to see different teaching and learning strategies within European partner schools. Teachers have also taken part in Comenius training courses within the Lifelong Learning Programme and in 2013 we hosted a Comenius Assistant from Turkey, who worked as a CLIL teacher to most of the classes.
