Erasmus+ is the EU’s program to support and provide opportunities for schools to collaborate with other institutions in EU. The program is co-financed by European Union.

 

In cooperation with schools from Greece, Hungary and Romania we prepared a project called Cultural festivals. In the project we focus on cultures of different countries. The aim is to compare and to get acquainted with various nations, religions, local music, legends, cultural and natural sights, customs, traditions etc. This will help us to develope communication and social skills and also critical thinking. In addition, we are going to compare different school systems and the differences in teaching and learning methods.
