Italian Curriculum High School and Upper Secondary School: the team building project
At Vittoria High Schools, we devote the first days of each new school year to activities that are not strictly educational, often taught outside the school, outdoors and in nature.
The workshop on team building, a technique proven in a variety of professional contexts but still not common in the school environment, promotes meeting new class groups while fostering the team spirit and sense of belonging that plays an essential role in the ability to study in a peaceful and productive way.
The students experience the value of collaboration, the importance of feeling part of a group and mutual empathy. They learn to share goals, manage time and draw lessons from their successes and failures. The importance of the collaborative and collective aspect of study is one of the main requirements for students to feel involved, to be key players in their course of study and take responsibility for it.
