Meeting to Poland
Between 29th May and 02nd June The Polish school hosted the groups of the students and teachers from all the participating schools ( Greece, Germany, Spain, the UK and Ireland ).
The mobility to Poland was prepared by all the staff and the headteacher of the Polish school. The visitors were welcome in the traditional, Polish way with bread and salt. During the welcome ceremony the European visitors could see the dancing and singing performances carried out by the students of the Polish school.
The teachers and students participated in the training workshops conducted by the Polish students. The main idea of these workshops is to share the experience and good practice among the European teachers, to introduce the innovative and creative forms of writing into the curriculum of the different schools.

On the 1st June the Polish schools always celebrate the Children’s Day. Our school held a particular festival devoted to this day. The programme of the festival included the magic performance, first aid show, fire brigade action and the artistic performances of the Polish students.
The European visitors discovered the tourist attractions of the region of Upper Silesia and Minor Poland – the old capital Cracow, the mountain resort of Ustroń, the old towns of Cieszyn and Pszczyna.
The cuminating point of the visit was a traditional, Polish party, initiated with the traditional, Polish dance – the polonaise. Each visiting school prepared and showed their national dances and songs. The graduate of the Polish school – Łukasz Sowa, beguiled the party with his songs.
The mobility to the Polish school resulted with sharing the positive, educational experience among the participating schools and promoting the project in the local community.
