Welcome to the Comenius Blog

This is the blog for the Comenius trip to Huelva, Spain in March 2014. This blog will be updated daily by the girls on the trip.


The Comenius Programme run by the British Council. It is named after Jan Amos Comenius (1592-1670), often considered the father of modern education. Comenius has two main objectives:

  • to develop knowledge and understanding among young people and education staff of the diversity of European cultures and languages, and the value of this diversity
  • to help young people to acquire basic life skills and competences for their personal development, for future employment and for active European citizenship
