The “Öffentliches Stiftsgymnasium der Benediktiner” in St. Paul is a school of general secondary education. It offers two courses: Linguistic Lyceum, focused on languages and Scientific Lyceum, focused on natural sciences. The school has got 51 teachers, 7 not teaching staff, 27 classes with 650 students and is located in a small village in the valley of the Lavant, in a rural area about 70 km from Klagenfurt, capital of Carinthia. As the only school in the valley, is attended by students from nearby villages and cities. The classes are located in two buildings well equipped with gyms, ICT, language, chemical and physics labs. The school is always active to propose efficient and educational paths with curricular and extra-curricular activities, aiming to turn his graduates into tolerant, cosmopolitan, critical and well-educated people with excellent educational qualifications. In the school there is a self-assessment team (SQA) which proposes anonymous questionnaires to teachers, school staff, students, students' families to evaluate each educational activity.
Europe’s digital transformation and digitisation will affect how people live, interact, study and work. To avoid the risk of a society ill prepared for the future, investing in one’s digital skills throughout life will be of the utmost importance.
As education is the backbone of growth and inclusion in the EU, a key task for schools is preparing students and teachers to make the most of the opportunities and meet the challenges of a fast-moving, globalised and interconnected world. Therefore, our school is strongly motivated to set up this project with the aim to acquire, develop and improve in cooperation with other EU schools’ new skills, common strategies and exchange of good practices improving learning outcomes, enhance equity, improve efficiency, boost entrepreneurial competences and support digital entrepreneurship.
