Promotion of cross-border cooperation in education

ISK Tirol took part in school fair of the Euregio Inntal

On April 26, 2018, the Euregio Inntal once again invited schools from Bavaria and Tyrol to meet and exchange ideas at the FH Kufstein Tirol. According to the motto "health makes school", the fifth cross-border school fair placed a focus on nutrition, exercise and the healthy use of digital media. The International School Kufstein Tirol was pleased to take an active part in the fair.

After introductory words of Euregio President Prof. Walter J. Mayr and Kufstein's compulsory school inspector Margarethe Egger, the educational institutions of different school types and from different parts of the cross-border region presented themselves at their fair stands. A broad and impressive range of healthy initiatives was demonstrated.

Herbert Madl, Head of School, presented the school profile of ISK Tirol and the sustainable activities in the field of "healthy school". For example, in addition to the subject "Sports", ISK Tirol offers its students a special focus in exercise and sport with the subject "Outdoor and Fun Sports". The two additional lessons per week are used for interesting indoor and outdoor activities. Furthermore, the students are offered a "healthy snack" every week, consisting of different kinds of fruit and bought from local traders.

The event impressively demonstrated how the topic of "health" can be actively integrated into daily school operations. Tastings of the school kitchens rounded off the afternoon with culinary delights.
