Upplands-Bro’19 – ‘Winter Olympics’ SWEDEN

Erasmus+ IHMB third short-term exchange held by Upplands-Bro Gymnasiet between January 27th – February 2nd started yesterday with the presentation of the program, followed by lot of awesome activities: cooperative games, mindfulness, yoga, ice-skating and team sports. Sceneries created by our project during the celebration of the mobilities promote  sociocultural exchanges among participants, getting to know other realities and , in short, inclusion through physical activities and sports as the main of this ERASMUS+ project!

This time in Sweden, Upplands Bro Gymnasiet will be in charge of the celebration of our Winter Olympics between 27th January  – 2nd February. After team sports and athletics in Spain and sport activities in natural environment in Poland, now it’s time for winter sports in Sweden. Participants, students and teachers, will share lots of good moments within a sport frame, but also cultural activities and lessons at the hosting school will be part of the programme of this next short-term exchange. Therefore, Erasmus+IHMB teacher’s team continues making a substantial effort to gather the students of the four countries around attractive activities which enable good friendships being born. 

Participants are really looking forward to enjoying this Erasmus event!


The programme Erasmus + IHMB has given our students the opportunity to make new international friends and keep in regular contact with them. However, this opportunity is not only offered to those students actually going on the exchanges, the programme goes beyond that. As a result of one of the meetings held by the teachers in charge of the organisation of the programme an idea was born, and it has successfully become a reality.
In December 2018, a group of 12- and 13-year-old students from both ÍES Sol de Portocarrero (Spain) and Europaschule Rövershagen (Germany) started to exchange letters in which they have introduced themselves and talked about different things such as their hobbies, their schools, their families, their life in Spain or in Germany, and the differences and similarities between both countries. Students are really excited about this exchange, which not only allows them to make new friends and learn about different customs, but it also gives them the chance to practise their foreign language skills in a real context. Plus, in the age of technology…. we’ve gone old school! Most of these students have never received an actual letter and they are having so much fun writing and decorating them!
Hopefully, they can build friendships that last a lifetime!
