School activities in Roma

Schools activities phase 1
During RoSaCe phase 1 “Safe Schools” after introducing RoSaCe project, explaining tasks and roles and it’s European dimension, showing pictures of the other cities involved, workshops in class first focused on the meaning of safety, factors which contribute to safety and on the perceptions of safe/unsafe places in the school. Children identified the different areas of the school and their characteristics, then moved into an action phase: identifying possible allies and strategies, such as writing and distributing a questionnaire about safety perception in school to the other classes of the institute and interpreting the outcomes.

Schools activities phase 2
During RoSaCe phase 2 “Safe Streets” – the intention of the workshops have been extended the children’s focus to the surroundings of the school; drawing maps of where they live, taking surveys (pictures, videos and notes) of the school surroundings to map the places in the neighbourhood they like and consider safe; making interviews of families, friends, inhabitantsand shopkeepers in the neighbourhood about the issue of street safety; outlining a graphic project for safe paths, creating signs and postcards of the neighbourhood
Each school took part for a day in the “walking schoolbus” project, an important moment for RoSaCe pupils to experience going to school by foot without their parents. This was an occasion to re-launch the “walking schoolbus” project at a city level.
As a conclusion to phase 2, the children of each school visited the other schools involved in RoSaCe for a whole day. The children had the occasion to meet each other, to exchange experiences and impressions about the project, and have a chance to learn about differentneighbourhoods of the city they live in.
