I guess many of us have some inkling of what it means to be left behind after the onslaught and ongoing challenges of Covid-19. All have suffered, the young, the elderly, the lonely, the vulnerable, those who felt secure and those threatened with insecurity through loss of income, relationships, education, work, homes, leisure or health. To name a few of the anxieties, sacrifices and unavoidable dilemmas faced, especially by those less able to withstand catastrophe through no fault of their own.
Sustainable Development Goals thread through every area of our lives and their interrelated nature has been laid bare by the pandemic and it's impact on lives worldwide.
The Leaving No-One Behind Team have reconvened to discover the Sustainable Development Goals again to take stock of what has worked well and how the project can be used to help students re-engage and recover their learning. Joining together for remote training has supported us as we tentatively look forward to completing activities face to face in 2022.
Reminding ourselves, our colleagues and students of past successes and enjoyment is all part of this process. An "Erasmus Day" celebration was used to bring Erasmus project achievements to life once more and broaden awareness of European values in our partner school in Germany. How fantastic is that?

The Erasmus Days at the Dr.-Jaufmann-Middleschool are a great annual opportunity to commemorate all our projects and activities and to celebrate Europe and ERASMUS.
Pupils can refresh their European and Erasmus knowledge in the process.
In a small exhibition, the current projects are presented and a lot of background information about the possibilities with ERASMUS actions are shown written and visual.
Do you know how many member states the EU has - and how many countries are accession candidates ? – Our students now know: 27 members (without GB) and 5 candidates (Turkey, Serbia, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Albania.
All students who answered a quiz about these – and other interesting facts correctly received a nice gift – sponsored by our National Agency.
A celebration with all the award winners on the last ERASMUS Day crowned the week.
