PANGEA 27.04 – 30.04.2015
Finland – Pori
Under project Pangea representatives from our school took part in the second meeting of partner schools. This time it was in Pori in Finland.
We showed the effects of work with the text “Moomins and the Great Flood”. This text was written by Finnish author Tove Jansson. Presentation with the album was prepared by the students of class IIa Adrian Bednarczyk and Izabella Jabłońska. Supervisor of the project works was Mrs Grażyna Klatka and the organiser of our trip was Mr Jacek Macina. Thanks to the visit in Pori we had once again the opportunity to make friends with our partners form Turkey, Spain, Hungary, England and Finland. During those four days in Pori together we did common lesson plan and logo designs with artwork on the project website. We also had the opportunity to see different interpretations of fairy Tove Jansson like T-shirts with characters, house of Moomins, masks of characters and puppets. Each country has tried hard and presented themselves in the best side. A surprise for everyone was quiz which was organised by the Turkish team. This quiz checked our knowledge of the story. We have seen that you can combine pleasure with utility.
Exchange in which we have chance to participate is wonderful adventure. We met many great people, knew traditions and customs of other nationalities, visited beautiful places and improved English.
The next stage of our literary journey is the visit our partners of the project in Poland. We chose the story. After the great search in the world of the science-fiction literary the decision fell on a piece of the text “Futurological Congress”. It was written by the greatest representative of Polish science fiction – writer and essayist Stanislaw Lem.
Work with that text probably will bring unique interpretations as well as a lot of discussions. Again we will have the opportunity to develop creativity among the Pangea project participants.
Polish students created their version of the story on the river San bank. The river devides our town for two parts. They took important roles in our history. Sometimes the floods of the river San were dangerous for our citizens. http://prezi.com/li88onixif7j/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy&rc=ex0share

I am a student from Hungary who had the chance to visit the second project meeting in Pori. The encounter was perfect. There are some things below which proves that!:)
Day-by-days every country showed their presentations associate with the novel and their hometown which were so interesting and well- organized.
Moreover, we saw tons of fascinating places such as: the lake with the sauna , landscapes of Pori, the beautiful church in Rauma, the breathtaking sea etc. Among these venues I like the most the smoke sauna , because it was enormous and after that we ran into the nearby lake, of course if we want. Suffice to say it was an unforgettable experience ever. We also visited the sea and took same photos:
The food was delicious , I have never thought how tasty the finish cousin is. Not to mention the finish girls present who prepared us lovely donuts with tea.
During the last supper everybody was gifted with a lovely Moomins’ mug and the certificate of attendance.
To sum up, I have never forgotten these 3 days which gave me wonderful memories from Finland. We not only broadened our mind and practiced English but also got to know plenty of warm-hearted fellows and teachers.
