Monday, October 1, the first day of the project at the Evangelisches Gymnasium, in Lippstadt, Germany

Very early in the morning, we gathered outside the school. The students were already in place waiting for us. The headmistress welcomed us and we went for a tour around the school and visited a few classes and even in teachers’ room. Then we ate lunch in the school’s dining room and then we headed for a very famous chocolate factory, Peters. There we learned all that is to know about chocolate, and then we had to let the imagination flow and create our own produce of the good fruit that the Mayan Indians taught us to appreciate.

Regional Club in Our School

During the whole last school year we had a regional club functioning in our school. Our geography and history teachers were working with the students on many aspects connected with our region. The  pupils were learning about its history, traditions and geographical features. As the last task they chose to see its beauty by themselves. The students went on a trip to see the regional attractions such as the ruins of a medieval castle in a village Stare Drawsko, picturesque scenery of a health resort Polczyn Zdroj and loveliness of natural landscapes of Drawa Lake District. Everyone had a great time, especially dressing up as medieval knights and ladies gave the students a lot of joy. It was a good lesson for students to learn that touristic attractions might be found nearby as well.
