Meeting with a writer Lidia Miś in Przemyśl

Asia is an eight-year girl. Once upon a time she decides to go for a walk ,she goes to the library and finds an amazing book called “Visiting the Witches”. When she starts reading, it turns out that the book is magic. Asia moves to the land where seven witches live. She must visit all of them….this is the beginning of a fairy tale written by Polish writer Lidia Miś.
Last week in Przemyśl Public Library witches, wizards and fairies could meet the author and take part in reading competition. Our school was represented by three contestants : Julia, Kasia and Emilka.

A postcard from the meeting.

In our project as much as we want to use modern ICT technologies we also want to increase key competencies like reading and writing both in mother tongue and foreign language.
That`s why we asked pupils who met in Przemyśl, to write and send simple postcard to their friends in partners` countries and to their own school.

Przemysl- we are glad to have met you!

After a long trip and a few funny situations Metka and I finally arrived to the town, which name we couldn't pronounce. There we were warmly welcomed by our Polish hosts and spent five days to remember! We have met incredible people from Poland, Latvija, Netherlands, Catalonia and Portugal. It was interesting how a mixture of people of different ages, languages and nationalities found so many things in common. Our hosts presented us how their school system works, pupils prepared some very nice acts and even taught us how to dance Polonaise, their national dance. We strolled through the streets of a beautiful old part of the Przemysl ( we 've learnt how to pronounce it after a couple of days!), visited some interesting places connected to local legends and spent every evening comparing impressions  with our new friends.

We can not thank you enough for a very pleasant company and all the effort Gosia and her Polish team put in to our visit!

Hello from Catalonia


This week we have been so lucky to meet our comenius friends in Przemysl, Poland. The meeting was a real succes. We met our colleages from Portugal, Holland, Slovenia, Latvia and Poland. We spent some wonderful time together.
We had the opportunity to visit the Polish school and meet its teachers and pupils. We also could discover the beautiful city and country during some trips we did.
We would like to thank the host school for its fantastic welcoming, as well as the Town Hall and the Carmelitan monastery for giving us the oportunity to learn a little more about the Polish history and culture. We also would like to thank Gosia, the Polish coordinator, for the wonderful job she did to make our stay an unforgettable experience.
We wish that our project was a fantastic way to discover each others identity and culture.
