“Local institutions will link up with schools in countries across the EU to take forward projects with a range of themes, including maths, the environment, language and literacy, arts and business.

“This experience can only serve to expand their horizons and will deliver side benefits such as the opportunity to learn and practise foreign language skills.

“Almost every sector of the local education system is represented. I congratulate them all and wish all those participating well as they embrace their projects.”
