Eusko Ikastola Batza -EIB- (a basque education association) has celebrated its 25th anniversary. 4 schools (Lauaxeta and Lauro from Bizkaia, Ekintza from Gipuzkoa and Olabide from Araba) got together in 1986 to create a common project. The main aim of the EIB was to defend the autonomy of these schools and their education projects.
This past summer we started with a new exchange with Bishop Kelly Hight School in Idaho (Boise). At the beginning of July Ane Eiguren, Nikole Leanibarrutia, Itziar Arrazola and Irantzu Picatoste arrived in Boise with Andone Ruiz Uranga. The main aim of the project is to strengthen the relantionships between Boise and our school and consolidate the exchange in the near future. 4 students have had the oportunity to come to Boise, but we hope to increase this number next year.
In recognition of the EFQM Prizes we were awarded last year, our school was invited to visit the european capital and its institutions.
From 26th to 28th July, a wide representative of those who are part of Olabide (managers, workers, students...) flew to the heart of Europe. They walked through Bruges (Belgium) and then, back to Brussels, visited the head office of EFQM, where they had the opportunity to share experiences and talk about the prizes awarded.
