Meeting to Ireland
On 11/03. - 18/03/2018 another visit took place as part of the Erasmus + project. Teachers and students from Ireland, Poland, Germany, Spain, Greece and England met this time in Ireland.
Entrepreneurship, which is the leitmotif of our project, was presented at the second fair. We sold handmade birthday and Easter cards. They aroused considerable interest. We sold all the cards. The children were very involved in the sale of cards.
The visit was full of sightseeing trips. We visited the beautiful town of Kenmare, where we stayed for a whole week. We were charmed by the hospitality of the inhabitants, their peace and commitment to the life of the city. Killarney was another place that we remembered. The National Park enchanted the totally green landscape, the rushing waterfalls were an amazing stop along the route. We also visitted the Muckross Palace in Killarney. The next day brought us even more attractive views. A day trip along the scenic route Ring of Beara was an unforgettable experience. We could see typical Irish areas, we were surprised by the amount of sheep met along the way. In addition, the sheep themselves, feeling the hosts of the area, did not do anything about passing cars and were not skittish. Last day surprised us with another wonderful views in Derrynane.
We could walk there through the Irish wilderness, get to know the vegetation and microworld of insects and animals inhabiting this area. It was a great fun to walk on the beach. The last place we went to was the town of Sneem. We took part in the annual parade on the occasion of St. Patrick's Day. The children also had the opportunity to taste the products of the local chocolate factory, they were also in the cinema and had a pizza together with European friends. It seems, however, that the most atrractive was a concert on the occasion of St. Patrick's Day at Carneggie Hall. Irish singing and typical Irish dance caught our attention this evening.
Afternoons spent in cozy homesteads of Irish families were also a considerable attraction for children. Being part of the family was very important for them. Our children gained confidence, their communication in English was at a very high level, which was often emphasized by their families. As always happens - our Irish adventure has come to an end. Farewells with families were very moving. On the way back we all agreed - we have to come back here!
