In last december it was Finland's turn to shine and host activities for other teachers and students. The local newspaper (Lempäälän-Vesilahden Sanomat) published a short article about the event. You can find it in here (in finnish though): http://lvs.fi/2015/12/09/lempoisten-koululla-ulkomaisia-vieraita/ . Here's a free translation of the text:
The school of Lempoinen is taking part in an Erasmus+ -project during this and the following year. The theme of this project is combating and preventing bullying in schools. In total there are seven countries involved: Finland, England, Germany, Turkey, Slovakia, Hungary, Portugal. Finland received guests in 28.11 - 4.12. International teachers and english kids enjoyed the hotel while other students were placed in host families.
The week was full of different events ranging from welcoming assembly on monday, ice skating, gingerbread cookie baking to grande finale of international evening on thursday, where food and presentations from all over the Europe were presented.
In Kaupinojan sauna the guests got to try traditional finnish sauna and ice swimming (in an iceless lake though). Verso and välkkäri trainings were offered too. The school was decorated to fit the christmas mood, the hallways had different flags and presentations hanging.
Erasmus+ -project continues in early march with a trip to Portugal.
