In order to bring primary school students closer to the radio and to European projects, we decided to invite several groupsof students from the nearest primary school to our radio studio and show them how we work with it. This was a great opportunity to tell these future secondary school students about Erasmus + projects and, more specifically, about our own project, School Radio Waves.
This is the link to the Spanish ecological poem, titled “Mare Nostrum”. In Sucha Beskidzka, our students will read it and explain its meaning.
Our Polish group, consisting of five students and two teachers, set off to Hungary on the 12th February 2017. The journey wasn’t long. It took about seven hours by bus. In the evening, we arrived to Kecskemet, where we were awaited by Hungarian hosts.
On the first day, all groups gathered in the biggest class at school. Everybody sat in a chair circle and said their names. Then, Hungarian students showed us their library, canteen, sports hall and cinema class. Later we went to observe lessons and talked a lot of about our school, families and cities. Next, after the lunch break, we went to see the school radio. Later, all groups showed their presentation about teen addiction. Next we went to the Kecskemét main square, where we had to answer a few questions. Our answers were recorded.
On the second day of our stay we gathered around 8 in front of the youth center. Animators had prepared us
a lot of interesting integration games and activities. After the lunch, we went to the theatre, which was in the
same building, and attended interactive anti—addiction programme. Activities in the Youth Center finished
in the afternoon.
15th February was very cold. In the morning we went to do the Hungarian town Szegeden. The journey took about 45 minutes. The first stop was the farm, which was 40 kilometers away from the destination point. When we arrived, we went for tea and then had a horse wagon ride. We traveled together with girls from Portugal. The next stop was the Szegeden Radio. Then, the whole group went to see the Danube River, where Hungarian teachers told us the history of this city. Next, we saw a beautiful baroque church and the University Library, which had 1 500 000 books! In the evening we came back to Kecskemet.
The fourth day was devoted to finishing our reportages, recording them and dealing with sound processing. We also admired the regional folk group show. After that we felt like stars because some project members met TV workers and took part in an interview. After the lunch break we had an opportunity to visit Laszkowski Museum and play weird and extraordinary instruments. The last point of the programme was a visit to local TV.
On the last scheduled day of the project we started classes at 7:45. After gathering in the largest classroom at school, we attended visit evaluation and were given certificates. After that, we had a free afternoon with our hosts. We went bowling.
The 18th February was the day of saying goodbye to our hospitable hosts, new friends and the lovely city of Kecskemet. On our way to Poland we were still excited and kept talking about the meeting. We were sad that we had to leave but, on the other hand, we knew that we would meet again very soon in Sucha Beskidzka.
Our school community was very curious to learn about the Kesckemet visit. That is why we prepared a presentation, which included photos and films. First, we shared our impressions with teachers in one of teachers’ conferences. Then, we talked to our colleagues. They had lots of questions!
At the moment, we’re looking forward to meeting the Erasmus+ team again. See you in Sucha Beskidzka!
