In the meantime the teachers had their official meeting that went on until dinner timeand they also visited the school.At the beginning of the meeting the coordinator of the project, Natalia Mauro Nicolino,pointed out that we were still lacking some lessons from partner schools on our officialwebsite. She also explained the importance of keeping the lessons uploaded on thewebsite together with evaluating surveys so that they can serve as resources for theothers. We all agreed that Sweden will prepare the general file, which can be used byall partner schools for uploading one content of the lesson and one evaluating surveytogether with maximum 4 photos ( with captions) from each country. The deadlineswere established as follow: 1. Italy by the 7th of May 2. Sweden – by the 9th of May 3. Luxembourg – by the 11th of May 4. Poland – by the 13th of May 5. Spain – by the 20th of MayThe participants also came to an agreement about the official logo of the project.We decided to keep two logos – the Spanish and the Polish ones as there was a verynarrow victory, by only couple of votes.After that, we discussed the objectives for the September mobility in Poland, where allthe partners should plan activities for the next school year. In order to do that, theparticipants will have to bring the programmes and the proposals for the lessons sothat we could choose a common topic in Biology, Physics, Chemistry orSociology/Social(SD).We also made some pre-planning for the October mobility in Spain, where the pupilsfrom partner schools are supposed to attend 5 lessons (45 minutes each) taught inEnglish.The Polish side declared to deal with Social, the Spanish – Renewable Energy, theItalian – Biology, the Luxembourgish postponed the decision for about two weeks andthe Swedish – Sustainable Development with general approach to show variety oftopics taught. However, in case the countries are having second thoughts, they canstill change their mind within one month. The prevailing means to be used during thelessons were: the Internet, the Power Point presentations and some visual aids.The official meeting ended up with visiting the school.
After that, there was a midday meal at the canteen, followed by a guided tour of theNatural History Museum(Naturmuse’e), which both pupils and teachers found veryinteresting.The hosts also arranged a guided tour of the city of Luxembourg, during which theparticipants learned a lot about the history, the culture and especially the importanceof the Luxembourgish language.
