What is it about?
Who we are
We are some students at “Ugo Betti” Secondary School, joined together with both Primary and Infant Schools in 2011. Because of a measuring of the educational system in the territory around Fermo. Our students come from the town centre, from another area built in the seventies and also from some recent or very recent housing in the outskirts. At present there are 958 students in our school, including 298 Secondary School pupils.
Why this project
The school is placed in the historical town centre in Fermo and most of the students walk to school. Every day they have to carry their rucksacks to school and sometimes it’s really tiring. That’s the reason why we need some useful and practical lockers. Not only to keep the books , but also the Art and I.T. briefcases, the P.E. bags or a musical instrument. Our idea sounds great and original to us and we hope other students will be involved in the project together with our families or everybody who wants to share it with us. We are passionate and keen on lockers, so we think the efforts we are bearing will be well-repaid sooner or later.
The project aims to:
1 raise money to buy some lockers that will be placed along the corridors in our school;
2 let the community in our territory know how a social web works and to po0int out its correct use;
3 strengthen our ability in team-working, to cooperate with our teachers and with people from outside school;
4 solve the problems independently and in a reliable way;
5 work together for a common aim through joining students, parents, relatives, friends, firms and institutions.
How funds will be used
Raise money to buy some lockers that will be placed along the corridors in our school.
Who's behind the project?
The project involves students at the Ugo Betti and in particular the lower Secondary school with families, teachers, and the press and communication, and all those who will want to share.
