Project Summary

There were many reasons for us to make our project about eating habits and keeping fit. As we all know our eating habits are changing due to the changes in our daily life. Skipping breakfast, drinking soft drinks and Coke instead of water and eating fast food instead of nutritive and healthy food is one of the main problems. Due to the rapid development and growth within the pupils during the primary school years the pupils need more nutritional elements than the following years. For this reason, we aimed to help our pupils have a good eating habit. We all believe ” Healthy diet means healthy childhood; healthy childhood means healthy adulthood.”
In this project we helped them to learn what to eat and also when to eat.
Most of the pupils spend their free time in front of the computers. They don’t do enough excercise.They prefer chatting with their friends on the net or phone. We wanted to help our pupils be more interested in doing exercises and joining in a sports team. Children spend most of their free time in front of the PC or TV and when they want to talk to each other they just phone or use social networks. We think the children should do some sports and free-time activities, too. It would be better not only for their health but also for improving their relationship with other people. During the project they could communicate in English and improve their communicating skills, they had an opportunity to meet people from a different country and make friends. Sports provided a tool with which we could teach leadership, confidence, discipline, tolerance, coordination and respect. In our opinion participation in sports supports the preservation of a clean and healthy environment.
– developing pupils’ competency through non-formal education during free-time and outdoor activities
– fighting childhood obesity
– promoting a healthy behaviour and healthy lifestyle
– promoting sports and outdoor activities
– teaching discipline and respect through sports

Local community: Local community like local press, municipality, directorate of national education helped to disseminate the project to a wider community. Approximately 200 people from local community were indirectly affected.
Through our project the three partners intended to create both short-term and long-term tangible and intangible results and to achieve the biggest possible impact to future projects and policy processes such as leading students to overcome stereotypes, setting up eTwinning website in order to provide continuous access to the general information of the project activities, progress and results, writing newspaper reports and creating on-site panels or leaflets to inform non-specialist audience about the project’s background and main results.The most important long-term impact we expected to be for students in changing their way of living embracing a healthier lifestyle leading to wellbeing. The results of the project activities are f.e. videos about sports and free time activities, surveys about sports and healthy food, a video-cookery book, a book of CLIL materials, workshops connected to wellbeing, healthy cooking and European citizenship, reports school magazine articles, flash discs with main materials,reports and video-presentations.
