School visit: Erasmus+ group, January 2022
On 20 January 2022, we were delighted to welcome a delegation of teachers, principals, and school counsellors who visited our school as part of international cooperation through a science-based Erasmus+ KA2 project based around environmental pollution research in schools.¸
This is the first time since Covid-related restrictions came into force that we were able to open our doors to international guest so having this group of visitors from Belgium, Poland, and Spain was made to feel even more special.
Our students had worked hard on a presentation to allow our guests to learn more about Slovenia, the city of Ljubljana, the education system in Slovenia, and the different classes and projects which take place in Gimnazija Vič. There was also the chance for them to hear performances of some of our students’ creative writing from some recent competitions which were very well received.
Once the presentation was over and our students enjoyed some sweet treats provided by our guests as a thank-you for the warm welcome and the dedication to the project, it was time for the for formal side of things to continue. The international visitors went on to have discussions with members of our science department on some of the aspects of their wider project and learned more about some of the biggest science-based projects at our school and our valuable cooperation with local universities and other institutions.
With a chance to tour Ljubljana planned for them as well as a trip around some of Slovenia’s most famous sights, we hope that our guests enjoyed their time here and we greatly look forward to welcoming others to our school as international travel becomes possible once again.
