'Murder in Istanbul' performed by Lithuanian project team

'Murder in Istanbul' was presented in Skuodas on May 31st. It was an extremely interesting experience for all project participants.

While working we encountered some problems. Whereas only one student participated in the international play in Spain for others it was a real challenge .

Another problem was a small stage, but we could not change anything thus we decided to try to fit in a small space.
We learned the dance a bit earlier as we presented the project on May 9th during the events of Europe Day organized in Skuodas. 

So step by step we had all the work done: actors were ready, invitations were sent, spectators were invited...and the day X came.
Despite the last two days before the play were quite stressful, the amazing atmosphere in the hall quickly dispelled the fears of young artists. 

Everybody felt happy after the play. Besides having fun and unforgettable experience, students learned to work creatively in the team, what is one of the most important things in the modern world. It was a bit sad at the same time because the performance marked the end of the project.

Murder in Istanbul performed in Croatia

Murder in Istanbul was performed in Croatia on June 1st, 2018.

In spite of many technical difficulties, students and mentors enjoyed working on the play throughout the rehearsals, the performance itself and in editing the video.

The main drawback was the lack of space. Hvar is celebrating 150 years of organized tourism and it is difficult to find available place for the performance. Therefore we decided to use our gym and it turned out great!
During the rehearsals students decided to add another dance they had learned in Turkey. It is such

a wonderful feeling when a mentor realizes that students want to put more effort into the performance than necessary.
We proudly present our slightly modified performance:

'Murder in Istanbul' performed by the Spanish team. May 30th, 2018

On May 30th, the Spanish team recorded our international play, Murder in Istanbul.

There was  something fantastically rewarding about staging this school show with our students.
Putting this  play was  a brilliant way to boost the profile of drama and music of our students. They got to build their confidence at stage, and they learnt that taking part in live performances is great fun.
We all enjoyed and had fun, it didn't finish on the day of the recording, we learnt even more when editing the film. It was a great opportunity to learn.

we recorded on some gropus at school, soon we will upload more stories ...

Here you can watch the film of the play Spanish team, Murder in Istanbul.

4th transnational meeting in Italy

The fourth transnational project meeting took place in Rome, Italy. It was organised from 17-18 May, 2018 and each partner institution was represented by two or three project team members. 

During the meeting we concluded the project by summing up all the project activities we had completed and we checked and planned the final activities of the project. We agreed on the deadlines for the implementation of the project activities and also made preparations for the final report. We finalised the project results and made decisions about what to upload to the European Dissemination Platform.

Every partner presented their experience of the three-year partnership through a presentation pointing out the impact the project has had on their institutions.

We agreed on and elaborated on the common assessment tools both for language measurement and final assessment.  We started working on the final report, too, by discussing report questions. Since it was the final meeting of our project we discussed how the activities we had carried out could be sustained and embedded in our school curricula and we seeked ways of possible future cooperation among partners.

We also took part in some great cultural activities and we went on some trips exploring Rome. We visited Palazzo Valentini where we took part in an interactive tour of the archeological remains of a Roman Domus, which was fascinating and informative.

We were all fascinated by the various tastes and sights of Italy and were grateful for the good official programmes and the hospitality and kindness of our Italian partners!

Day 5 short-term students exchange meeting in Spain.

Day 5

A day in Cuenca, UNESCO World Heritage Centre.

We start the day early in the morming, today we go to Cuenca which is one of the five provinces of the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha.

As usual, our dear Vesna starts the day taking pictures of every moment and of all teachers and students. our guests are waiting at the meeting point full of excitement to start a great day in this unknown city for them .

Cuenca is at the North of the province, its first kwnon name was Cünka. Since the Paleolitic to these days Cuanca has been a very rich city in historical and cultural events.

Nowadays, the economy is based on turism, It became very important at the end of the 20th century, in 1996 when this city was declared Unesco World Heritage Centre.

Its architectural background around the old town is great, buildings such as the Cathedral of Cuenca and Las Casas Colgadas have become some of the symbols of the city.

We visited the The Science Museum in Cuenca although there are more than ten important of them.
We enjoyed every activity at the Museum, touching, seeing, smelling,  hearing and even tasting all the five senses alive for the whole visit. We reinforced and  learned many things during the visit, the monitors gave us clear lessons on the different  topics.

Then in the afternoon, we started a walking  tour around the city and our tour guide did great in his briefing, we smiled, and had a great learning time once again.

Main events in the city are Easter , which was just finished in April and the Religious Musical week
The Mediterraneal cliamte of Cuenca permited us to have a perfect day walking through its streets.

It was an unforgetable day, full of great memories that we took with us.
