and took to the hotel in Nola. In the

10. All partners had the opportunity to finally meet face to
face and to get to know each other better, as well as
discussing the planned activities in detail.
A study visit to Sorrento, was organized in order to
create a comprehensive programme of guided visits to
places of special interest for the objectives of our
project. We have aimed to select the places of artistic
value that are important to be visited by our students,
during their visit to Italy in March 2017. A guided tour
has given the project coordinators an insight into art,
history and traditions of Italy and the region of the
Italian school. Being familiar with these topics is
relevant for the following project activities.
The visit to Sorrento offered the teachers an increased
experience of European Cultural Diversity, which they
will be able to use in their classrooms. Teachers
gained practical and theoretic knowledge in the fields
of fine arts, history, architecture, and traditions.
Day one, Tuesday, 7th February 2017
17. The second day of the meeting was dedicated mostly to working sessions. These are the issues discussed:
1. Presentation of the school/area of each partner
2. Changes in the timetable
•Due to late announcement of results and having a partner deleted from the project (Portugal), the timetable of the project needed to be
•The first transnational meeting was held in February. We decided on the following timetable for the next meetings.
•1st Short-term learning/training/teaching activities (students exchange) will be organized in Italy, from 13th to 19th March 2017.
•2nd Transnational Meeting will be held in Romania, from 26th to 30th April 2017.
•2nd Short-term learning/training/teaching activities (students exchange) will be organized in Poland, between 22nd to 28th May 2017.
We organized a contest and decided which logo will represent our project. The chosen logo was published on the project website
and known to all participants.
Day two, Wednesday 8th February 2017
19. 3. Project website
The country responsible for the website is Poland, which has already made an initial design. It will contain
different information about the project, project documents, results of the project will be presented there,
photo gallery, links to school websites, Facebook accounts, etc. But most importantly, it will offer a clear
and easy access to all the key activities of the project.
We have agreed that all partners will send the descriptions of their schools and photos to Poland by 15th
February. One of the menus on our project web site will be dedicated to partner schools. All this will then
be posted for students, parents, colleagues and general public to see. All partners will contribute to the
creation of the website.
4. Short-term learning/training/teaching activities
An agreement of how to better prepare the short term students exchanges was discussed. Most partners
have agreed that during these events the students will stay at the hotel with the teachers. The organizers
should provide accommodation at good prices for students and teachers.
It has been decided that all cost and expenses for participants like local transportation, museum tickets,
entry fares must be covered by each school out of their own project budget.
21. Meeting in the Town Hall of Lauro
with the headmaster and the authorities, including the Mayor
22. Lauro is known for the imposing Lancellotti Castle, built in the 11th
century in a beautiful panoramic position. The Castle is the building that
symbolized Lauro, not only for its artistic value but also for its history.
In 1632 it was bought by the Lancellotti family, who still own the Castle.
Since our project focuses on culture and traditions, we want our students
to visit the most outstanding cultural sights. This will help them gain
knowledge related to history, customs and traditions, which will in turn
help them with their personal and professional development. This is why
planning sightseeing visits to the near-by cities was one of the priorities
of our transnational meeting to Italy. Upon visiting Lancellotti Castle we
have unanimously decided that it is a must see for our students.
24. Study visit to Naples
Naples in Italy has a history of over 2000 years and a rich cultural heritage. We tried to discover
the fascinating Neapolitan traditions and culture in a sightseeing tour of half a day. The heart of Naples is
the old city, which UNESCO declared a Cultural Heritage site. Its narrow alleyways lead to mysterious
churches, catacombs and underground caves. Naples’s old folk culture reveals itself to the visitor among
craftspeople, fluttering laundry and shouting fish sellers.
The aim of this visit was to see and evaluate the traditions in people’s way of living, speaking and eating and
what values they promote to the world. Therefore, we will be able to meet the project objectives.
Day three, Thursday 9th February 2017
26. Discussion on dissemination of the results
Dissemination of the project has been discussed with all partners' agreement to use various
dissemination methods. Amongst many the most popular ones will be:
* writing articles, placing photos, impressions in the project website in English
* writing articles, placing photos, impressions in the school websites in English or native
* informing the local authorities and school authorities about the project and its progress
All partners have agreed to equally contribute to the project website and keep the project
participants up-to-date with tasks and activities.
We have decided to keep track of all dissemination activities on the project website.
Evaluating tangible and intangible results
We have discussed ways of evaluating tangible and intangible results of the project. This will
be done with the help of self-assessment questionnaires for students and teachers
participating in the project
These documents will help us assess our work, and will provide us with useful information
concerning our project’s aims and objectives.
