The second transnational project meeting in Cyprus - 5th-7th May 2015

According to TT-ECT project plan, the coordinators and teachers of partner schools met in order to analyze actions implemented from the beginning of the project, present the results, and create a plan to continue the project.

We were warmly welcomed by the hosts at their school and in their town. Kokkinotrimithia is a town located 20 kilometers from the capital of Cyprus, Nicosia. The town is situated in the central part of the island, and the climate and environment are very similar to those on our southern islands. Tourism is developed along the coast.

For 40 years, Cyprus has had a problem with the occupation of the northern part of the island by Turkey. Kokkinotrimithia is close to the demarcation zone, where there are UN forces. The capital, Nicosia, is divided by the line of demarcation. The hosts familiarized us with the beauty of the capital city and the charms of the Cypriot cuisine.

Further information about the partner school can be found on their website: http://gym-kokkinotrimithia-lef.schools.ac.cy/index.html, and blog http://www.ttectcy.blogspot.hr/. It was noted at the meeting that some of the activities were not completed in the timeframe that we determined, and we made arrangements about the planned activities we still need to implement. We also agreed on what we are going to do before the next transnational project meeting, which will be held in France during the last week in January 2016 (in the attached document).

On the last day we visited Agya Napa and Larnaca, two tourist resorts on the Mediterranean coast, where we met with partners from the American Academy of Larnaca with whom we worked in the Comenius project.
