The fourth mobility to Spain
The mobility to Spain lasted from Sunday 15th May to Friday 20th May. Italian, Polish and Greek partners arrived in Villena in different moments.
Some Spanish teachers and the host families were waiting to welcome the partners.
The first day of the mobility started in Ruperto Chapi school with all partners having a brief tour in the school building and enjoying the special welcome several classes had prepared for them.
During the tour the partners had the opportunity to admire the wonderful Erasmus+ decoration all over the walls and the corridors of the school.
Afterwards, they visited Villena’s castle, the medieval area, the old town and the “Moors and Christians Festivity” museum.
Impressed by the interesting history of the city, they all walked to the City Hall, where the mayor was waiting for them to welcome and offer them some gifts.
In the evening the school headmaster welcomed the partners and the schools presentations took place. During the ceremony all the partners exchanged symbolic gifts from their own country and enjoyed a music performance by the school orchestra. Later they had a delicious Spanish snack prepared by the school Parents’ Association.

On the second day of the mobility partners went on a trip to Elche where they visited the wonderful Municipal Park, full of different palm trees (approximately 250.000 trees!) and the impressive Basilica of Santa Maria.
Later partners went to Alicante and visited the castle of Santa Barbara.
In the afternoon teachers had an amusing guided tour to Chapi theatre and saw what happens in the backstage of each play and how the special effects work.

On Wednesday morning, all partners went on a trip to Valencia. They strolled around the Old Town and had a thorough and really interesting tour.
At noon, the group reached the Valencian beach Playa de las Arena, where they were served a delicious Spanish lunch.
In the afternoon, partners visited the impressive Oceanographic, Europe’s largest aquarium, as well as the City of Art and Science, where they saw some strange but interesting metal constructions.

On Thursday, the fourth day of the mobility, partners went to CEIP Ruperto Chapi where students participated in some classes’ activities and the teachers had a brief meeting.
After that, all partners left school to visit Villena’s archeological museum and admired the priceless Villena’s treasure.
In the afternoon a farewell ceremony took place in the school garden. Spanish students honored their guests by dancing traditional dances of the partners.

On Friday, the students participated in some classes’ activities and the teachers went to Biar, where the TV channel “Intercomarcal” is headquartered. There partners had the opportunity to talk about their experiences and present the Erasmus+ program on television.
After the interview and a tour around the TV station studios, all partners returned to school to say goodbye to the Italian group.
Later in the evening, teachers met once again to attend a lyrical gala at Chapi theatre. It was a beautiful musical and choral show, worthy representative of the local culture.
On Saturday and Sunday the Polish and Greek groups left Villena. Several feelings overwhelmed everybody; hugs, kisses and tears were the main scenery. The last photos were taken and a last promise to keep in touch was given by everyone.
Day 5 and 6 album
The fourth mobility to Spain was a great experience for both students and teachers. All partners lived the daily life of their Spanish partners and they all got to know the Spanish culture and the Spanish educational system. After working for two years in this project, partners got to know each other better, became familiar to each one’s culture and habits and the intimacy and the trust that were cultivated, helped so that the partners would experience an unforgettable last mobility.
