The project team consists of the school principal, head of studies and 8 teachers. The project application was made under the principal's leadership by the whole team.Individual participation in a training abroad is the first experience for most of the project participants.Our main reason to initiate this project is to become a school, in which teachers and students speak English fluently, take part in international cooperation within the learning process at school, work and communicate with the world virtually and in reality, feel their responsibility for future of the society, initiate their projects and see school as an environment for development and innovation.Digital environment, cross-curricular integration, support of entrepreneurship, fluency in English, international cooperation in the school life are those tools that help our students to achieve the skills and attitudes necessary in 21st century.The project is important for improving teachers' competences and increasing the quality and modernisation of our school work.
