Comenius meeting in Tavira, Portugal

From 10th to 17th May 2010 we visited our Comenius partner school in Tavira, Portugal. Five students from our 8th class - Maja, Lea, Jana, Anja, Tilen - accompanied by teachers Iztok and Robert took an almost four-hours-long flight to the southwest of Europe, to a mediterranean country of very kind people. There we took part at the International fair organized by our partner school and we presented the beauty of Slovenia, the municipality of Videm and the activities that take place at our Primary school Videm. Our Portuguese hosts also organized some sightseeing so that we learnt more about the land of the seamen.
At parting we felt rather sad because we've become very good friends with students and teachers of all six partner schools participating in this meeting.

European day at our school

On Monday, 10th May, was a European day at our school. We have learnt a lot about the countries of our partner schools - Spain, Portugal, Italy, Cyprus and Poland. Our students participated in workshops, such as cuisine, language workshops (we invited some outside help - one of them was even from Faro:)), geography, music, flora and fauna, art, crafts and sports. Younger children were also very creative. They've learnt about the countries through typical children's games, songs and dancing, arts and crafts. In the end we had a presentation of the workshops in our gym. It was a lovely day.

Children from many school in our region all perfomed on stage presenting one of the EU member countries and there were as many colourful stalls as there are EU countries. Our school was presenting Spain.
