OIS is currently participating in an Erasmus funded project from September 2018 - June 2020.

The topic of the project is: "What's our Heritage? - we are Yourope"

The following are our partner schools:


Vienna, Austria

NMS Staudingergasse

Stirling, Scotland

Wallace High School

Marbella, Spain

Instituto de Ensenanza Secundaria Sierra Blanca

Bielefeld, Germany

Theodor-Heuss Schule



This project is aimed at grades 7 - 9 students but all of the school will benefit from the cultural exchange that is possible through this project.

The main focus of this project is on the concept of culture and below are some of the things we will explore:

- the history and culture of gift giving


Tangible cultural heritage:

- UNESCO world heritage sites in all of the partner countries

 how buildings/sites, paintings, books are preserved and refurbished for themselves and for further generations


Intangible cultural heritage:

- recipes and cooking, music, songs and dances, crafts, art...


There will be 4 trips abroad with a few students able to participate in the exchange activities as ambassadors of OIS. There will be one trip to each partner country. We will host our partner schools in January 2020.

The trips are as follows:


Germany:  9.12.-14.12.2018

Spain:       5.5.-11.5.2019

Scotland:  22.-28.9. 2019
