Here is some news about our friendly child and teacher’s project especially about the visits to Aegina, Opheusden and Počernice.


Meeting on Aegina.

Dear friends and colleagues,

acropolisWe had a wonderful and very warm welcome in Greek style at the school in Kypsely with typical folklore dance by the youngest pupils. Stavroula and her staff made many preparations. The oldest pupils presented a story on stage about the 12 Gods of Mount Olympus who got a pistachio tree from Aegina. We had  good meetings about the project and talked about the final evaluations in May. The colleague’s from Ireland will gather all the answers given by the partner schools and present a concept in May. Teachers from Los Molinos, Pocernice, Netherlands and Greece showed their new boxes about programming and electricity. There even is a box which shows you how to a   vacuum cleaner works. Everything will be on the website soon. Madeline already made the minutes, everyone had a copy of them.





The survey was discussed and we made the appointment that al the results will be made in the same format of the first survey. Every partner will send it to the coordinator of the project next week. In may we will look at the final results.

We went to two satellite schools and made perfect excursions to Agistry, Palaja Xora, a pottery lab and the wonderful temple of Effeia.

We made appointments about the competition in Prague. For some pupils the bottle was too difficult, but we said earlier that you also can use a milk parcel or board. Every school uses the original set of engine and wheels.

Thanks for the fine time on Aegina.

Evaluations will be on the website next week…..



Welcome to the competition during the nice next meeting in Počernice.

Pupils are excited about the competition in Prague, they have been busy to make the most wonderful vehicles on their schools! We will communicate via internet and have a try out on Wednesday evening. Give your contact Skype name to Eva please!

Eva gave us information:

How to get from the airport to Horní Počernice

If you fly from countries outside the Schengen area, you arrive to Terminal 1. Directly opposite the exit of the arrivals zone there is an Public transport information center.

Flights from Schengen countries arrive to Terminal 2. Once you come out of the arrivals zone of the main hallway, turn left. After 30 meters you will se a Public transport information center.

I would like to recommend you to buy tickets for 3 days. When you buy a one-time ticket, it costs 32 CZK and you can go by bus, tram or metro for 90 minutes. If you buy this three-day trip it costs 310 CZK and you can go by the public transportation for 3 days unlimited. You can buy it at the airport.

You will need the ticket in arrival and departure days and also on Thursday.
