One of the most important idea of international projects Erasmus+ programme is to create european dimension of the schools and multicultural society.

The necessary part of this process it the mutual knowledge of different culture, customs and history.

Royal palace in Palermo

It was the reason why we spent the 3rd day of the mobility in the capital of Sicily, in Palermo

The incredible experience for us was the ancient local market where people offer local products. The sellers were too loud for us.

We visited the Royal Palace which is placed in the oldest part of the city and it was built by Arabs and at the present there is a seat of parliament and political parties.

Palermo is a city with a lot of historical building, churches and cultural monuments.

We finished the 3rd day of our short - term exchange of the groups of the pupils in Botanical Garden

There were a lot of tropical and subtropical plants such as different species of cactuses, agava, bambus trees and also giant ficuses.

THURSDAY, 29th October 2019

This day was divided into two parts

We continued in outdoor learning activities and visit EcoFruit Company in the morning

This company is special for the fact that they process just fruit and vegetable from Eco farms.

We found out that the whole process from harvesting the fruit to its final distribution to supermarkets and shops chains does not last more than 5 days.
It guarantees the freshness of all products.

Our pupils took their seats in Italian school and they were again the part of Italian school system later in the afternoon.

They went to work on their eMagazines in the same international teams as they worked during salad preparation.

Before the collaboration in international teams Slovak students P2P method explain again how to work in Adobe Spark app.

The common output of their work in international teams were eMagazines which are available on the link below:
