Article about the students´ stay abroad by students Martin U. and Michal G. :

On 20 November 2018, a group of four students and two teachers set off for the meeting of secondary schools in Ruda Slaska in Poland, involved in the European Union´s project Good school for the 21 st century.

The meeting was attended by six schools from six countries- The Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Turkey and Slovenia. Each school will gradually host one meeting in its town. The first meeting was organized by a Polish town in the agglomeration of Silesia, the second one is planned for 4 March 2019 in Istanbul.

The aim of the project is to improve students´ English level, social activities, and acquiring valuable experience.

On the first day, students from six countries performed their presentations on various topics - European Year of Cultural Heritage, Welcome to our town and school. It was followed by a description of the journey from Boskovice to Ruda Slaska. The day was ended by a demonstration of Polish folk dance, performed by students of the local school and everyone could join the dancers and give it a try. The second day was dedicated to national heroes of each country, the Czech team chose T.G- Masaryk for its presentation. Students also  tried to recognize different sights. We also visited the Town Hall and many other interesting places.

We are looking forward to the next meeting in Istanbul.

 

2nd partner meeting - Istanbul (TR), 5. - 9. 3. 2019

The main topic of the second project meeting for students was discussion about free time activities of young people and for teachers  it was updated methodology  (motivation for learning, historical context of the region, interactive school teaching through game, incorporating of disadvantaged students).

The level of students´ digital competences in their presentations was very high, as well as the way of presentation (language skills, soft skills) . Students offered many own videos as well as questionnaires with various charts. In teachers´ presentations, many practical solutions to everyday school situations related to chosen topis were offered.

Social activities during common dinners and sigtseeing are also an important part of  the project meeting. These informal encounters were an opportunity to share outputs from the presentations or just to talk about common school life and related topics. Talking about free- time activities, we must mention the visit of the Haghia Sofia Museum, The Blue Mosque or The Royal Palace. The boat cruise on canal Bospor was spectacular, too.

Article by student Martin U. 

"At the beginning of March, we travelled to Turkey. This was the second time we went for a GOS21 meeting. We enjoyed the trip a lot, as much as the previous one to Poland, It was a very useful experience. We introduced our regular school day to our colleagues and showed them opportunities of spending time in Boskovice. We visited some popular places. I am grateful for the introduction to Turkish culture. We are part of intercultural dialogue thanks to meetings with students from other countries. That is really important and we can better develop our opinion and seeing the world.

Article by student Radek T.

I think it was a great experience. I met a lot of great people. I had the opportunity to speak and learn about the habits of students from other countries. Mainly, I had the opportunity to practise English and this is a very beneficial experience for me.

Article by student Jakub S.

The whole trip to Slovakia went perfectly fine, except for a few negligable details. The overall program was very good, the only thing that bothered me were the workshops. During them we had no opportunity to meet other students and it was quite boring. Except for that, I have no complaints. I was able to meet other students in the end and I am very happy that I went.
