Monday, 18th of March.
Romanian students, teachers and parents welcomed their guests at school. They came from Bulgaria, Italy, Poland and Turkey. Our students prepared a welcoming ceremony. We prepared flags for of all five countries and flags for the European union. Our guests entered the school. At the school door, they tasted bread and salt, as a sign of our hospitality. We wanted to mix European symbols with national symbols. Our flute-singers sang the song of European Union. After that, we invited our guests to dance in our Romanian hora, a folk-dance. Our students from primary school were wearing traditional costumes. Teachers exchanged presents. We prepared small boxes with sweets, drinks, and little gifts for the guest-students. Next, we visited our school. We divided in two groups and attended activities in the primary school. After a short break, we went to see the presentations of each country in the project. The Romanian students prepared them. We attended activities in classes regarding national features of Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, Turkey. We were presented a Cyber-hand, made by one of the students and his team at the Robotics. It was interesting to see what students can do when they have passion for Robotics. After our lunch at school, we visited the town. We were guided by students from Interact Organization. They explained us what are the rules of creating an NGO, how to get money to support activities, how to volunteer.In the evening our talented mates, who also attend activities at the Cultural Department in Bistrita, organized a Multicultural event. The coordinator, Carolina Karoly is a teacher that conducted magically the choir. We listened to music, watched dances and drama moments, poems in the languages of all countries in the project were recited. I was exicited to recite a poem that I had learned from my Bulgarian friend, that day, at school. Even if I did not participated in any external mobility, I was happy to take part in this project.At the end there were a fund rising action, as we wanted to help students in the school for disabled students. We enjoyed pasta and pizza in the evening. It was quite a busy day!
