Meeting in Tubbercurry
From May 20th
- 23rd the final Comenius meeting took place in Tubbercurry. It was the first
time students from the participating countries met and exchanged their
experiences and opinions on the project. The German students wrote:
We went to
St. Attracta's school for three days. We took part in lessons and had a meeting
to discuss the Comenius project of the last year.
students mainly supported a charity project in Africa. They raised funds by
different activities like making cakes and selling them, and: they could go to
school without wearing their uniform for one day if they paid for it. That money
went into the project, too. With the money they bought pregnant animals and sent
them to Africa so that the people there could grow animals and support
themselves with food.
students worked on Viarmes and the surrounding area and presented their results
by articles and photos.
students did research in a nature conservation area where people try to rebreed
extinct species of the area.
We - the
Germans - worked on the big flood of the river Elbe which is near Clenze. We
documented the days of the flood, found out possible reasons, and interviewed
organization of working on the project was different in the schools. We had
regular project days and worked with the same group from form 7 to 9. The
Italians had project days, too, whereas the French and Irish pupils had one
Comenius lesson a week throughout the year in class seven, that means different
pupils each year.
All in all
the students liked the Comenius project though it sometimes was hard work.
