Presented on the 3nd meeting of the multilateral school partnership Our TRESAURES in Zagreb (May, 2011)
CELEBRATING EUROPE DAY – The 9th of May, Europe Day, is celebrated in various forms in most states of the European Union and surrounding countries such as Turkey. Due to the political nature of the day, it sees teaching people about the European Union and speaking in support of European integration. It is the occasion for activities and festivities that bring Europe closer to its citizens and peoples of the Union closer to one another. Accordingly, our school's activities include students' and teachers' participation in numerous events, debates, workshops and quizzes celebrating the launch, in 1950, of the process that eventually culminated in the formation of the EU. What is more, we regularly attend various lectures and presentations that critically and systematically teach us about different economic aspects of European integration, about the positive and negative sides of EU's single market as well as about legislation and home affairs, common policies on trade and the free movement of people, goods, services and capital within the EU.
