Transnational project meeting in Germany

From December 2nd to 6th, 2015, members from the Turkish partner school came to visit the Leonardo da Vinci Gymnasium in Neckargemünd, Germany. The visit was intended for the Turkish partners to get to know the partner school as well as the German school system as they couldn't participate in the first transnational project meeting in Germany in December 2014 when the topic was "music".

During the visit they spent some time at the school getting to know the school building and its curriculum, but also found out about highly gifted pupils and their specific demands on the school and its teachers.

Years 8, 9 and 10 got to also know a little bit about Turkish culture through a presentation and a special workshop organized by the Turkish partners.

In addition to visiting the school, the partners had a chance to see some of the beauty of Heidelberg, the nearest town to the school. Especially the Christmas market is a must see in December, but the castle and the old bridge were a part of the sightseeing tour as well.

Al in all, we were very happy to have the Turkish partners visit us in Germany and hope to work together in the future, beyond Erasmus+, too!
