Dear colleagues,

Here is some news about our project.

We had a perfect last meeting in Bray last week.

You can read more about it in the attachment and the coming evaluations of Sülvi and Eva. I am sure that they also enjoyed this week on several reasons.

I am sure that they feel sad that this was the last visit to Ireland in this project, but we still have this and next year to go……..

During the meetings with the principal Maeve and all the teachers we spoke about the boxes, the project and the coming visits. We also had a conversation about the new (much  simpler rules for new projects) opportunities for next projects. Some partners let me know that they would like to go for a next project about “Wellbeing in school” or “How to deal with Xenophobia”. We already have experiments with such a Comenius project. This project will be more with expression, drama and music in simple clear items like food, games, songs, storytelling etc. One school from Gozo (Marion Vella Muscat and Martine Attard, head of school – she was once in Bray already – she knows the school)  already said that they would join us. Peter Schonger with his new school from Austria is also interested. He also was once on Gozo and in Bray.

For the next visits is this information.

Greece Argina Kipsly.

In week 16 we will visit the school in Aegina. Stavroula and Anton will make the program for this week. In short we will visit Stavroula’s school in Kipsely and some other schools: the new school of Lilly and perhaps the school on Agistry (a small Island nearby) as satellite schools. There will be a hotel arranged in Aegina and perhaps for one night on Agistry for Monday till Friday. Stavroula arranged transport on the island with help of the maire of her village.

Most teachers arrive on Friday or Saturday in Athens and stay in Hotel Best Western Amazon Hotel  Metropoleos 19 & Pentelis 7 Athens 10557 00302103234002 in the center if Athens near the Plaka and the Syndagma square. Take the metro from the airport to Syndagma square or Metropoleos.

Saturday I will show you some highlights of Athens if you like. On Sundayday afternoon we will go to the harbor of Pirea and take a boat to Aegina where Stavroula will wait for us.

We hope that every visitor will show some boxes for the children. More info will be given by Stavroula and me.On Friday we will return to the mainland, Athens. The Dutch teachers will stay on Friday in a hotel near the airport (AVRA hotel, Arafinidon alon 3, Rafina 19009) because their departure is in Saturday morning, and the confections are good with a shuttle!


Turkey Mersin- Tarsus.

In week 17 the Project will be the Ozel Tarsus Toros Ilkogretim Okullu.

Nil, Eda or Ece will take care of the program for his week in cooperation with me.

The Dutch teachers will arrive on Sunday the22nd  of April at 19.00 hrs. in Adana.  They have a stop in Istanbul and flight from there on 17.20 to Adana by Turkish airlines (TK2468). They return on Friday  the 27th of April to Istanbul first on 15.40 (TK2463).

Nil will take care of the transport from and to the hotel. She promised that she also will arrange a hotel for a good and favorable price.

Take care that most of us need a visa for Turkey.

More info will be given by Nil soon. We hope that every visitor will show some boxes for the children

Visit in May to the Netherlands: info will come later. Enjoy your project and have good memories of the visits and meetings that were held…
