During this school year and the next one, our school is going to participate in an educative project together with other schools from Croatia, Germany, Greece, Italy and Poland. The aim of this initiative is to know the students and culture from other countries so as to promote healthy lifestyles. Some of our students from 4º ESO accompanied by some teachers will take part in the exchange with students from those countries to know their hometown. They will spend five days in each country sharing experiences with the teachers and students from the other countries, and participating in the different programmed activities for that country. The activities will be based on the topic of sports, food, dancing …

This week, from 24 to 26 September, we welcomed the teachers from the different countries here, in Santiago and Arzúa, in order to organize the coordination of the project and to program the activities for the first meetings in Germany and Poland. We met at the Galician Centre of Contemporary Art, in Santiago, and at our high school, in Arzúa. There they could meet the students who have shown their interest in participating in this project, and the students had the chance to show their ability to communicate in English with them. There was also enough time for us to show them around Santiago and Arzúa, and we would like to thank the students of vocational training in sociocultural entertainment and tourism of the Rosalía de Castro high school for their fantastic route around Santiago.
