First TPM: Theme Report

As educators we take upon ourselves the task of offering skills, knowledge, and education to all the students entrusted to us by their parents, aiming to shape not only well-qualified professionals and personalities with adequate background knowledge that will help them make it later on in life but also responsible citizens that will contribute to the common benefit of society locally, nationally, and internationally. Within this framework, we get in daily contact with our students, we work together, we guide them through their studies, and we encourage them to express themselves bringing out what is best in them as students and individuals. However, we can only do that as long as our students remain under the common roof we share and call “school”.

Experimental Junior High School of the University of Macedonia

The Experimental Junior High School of the University of Macedonia [Peiramatiko Gymnasio Panepistimiou Makedonias] is one of the two schools associated with the University of Macedonia, based in Thessaloniki, Greece. It implements modern and innovative educational, pedagogic, and teaching methodological approaches aiming to contribute to the improvement of secondary education in Greece. Since it is staffed with teachers that have been awarded either PhD or postgraduate degrees and the quality of the education offered is supervised by the school's Scientific Supervisory Board and the national Administrative Committee for Model Experimental Schools, our Junior High School offers a multitude of activities (extracurricular activities, excellence clubs, theater group, choir, etc.) to its students, including opportunities to participate in national and international projects (cultural and environmental projects, career orientation projects, robotics competitions, Comenius and eTwinning programs, etc.). The teachers and students involved in many of these extracurricular activities and projects have received national and European quality awards for their work.

The Experimental Junior High School of the University of Macedonia initiated this project originally and acts as the coordinating school. You can find out more about us and our activities at our website:




"Our School - My Future" is an ESL project initiated within the framework of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for School Education, aiming at achieving cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices between schools from different countries across Europe.

ESL is typically caused by a cumulative process of disengagement as a result of personal, social, economic, geographical, education or family-related reasons. Part of the problem can also be attributed to lack of support and guidance, disengagement from schooling, and secondary-level curricula which too often do not offer enough options for varied courses, alternative teaching pedagogies, experiential and other hands-on learning opportunities or sufficient flexibility and support. Within this framework, the project is designed to focus mainly on in-schools ESL influencing factors such as teaching methods and curricular issues, positive/negative school climate, and the parents’ role as a contributing factor to ESL.



Project objectives and results will be evaluated constantly both during and after the completion of the project. Qualitative and quantitative evaluation concerning the impact of the planned educational and other activities will be applied.

The tools that will be used are:

  • Written theme reports by each partner-organization.
  • Oral interviews with the partners/participants (teachers, students), which will be monitored and analyzed (qualitative evaluation).
  • Questionnaires filled in by all participants (quantitative evaluation), regarding their needs, interests and the expected/achieved outcomes of the project activities.

Expected Results

In general, the result of this project is expected to be the creation of an educational network dealing with the ESL problem, based on a holistic approach to the problem. The conclusions of the project as well as the educational material to be created are expected to contribute positively to the management and prevention of the ESL problem on a school and local level, primarily, as well as on a national and European level, eventually.

Results are listed analytically in the sections for the intellectual outputs, multiplier evens or learning, training, and teaching activities. Indicatively, the following are worth mentioning:
