    Hello, I’m from Romania, too, our school (School no. 92 in Bucharest) is already involved in an etwinning project and we also have a chapter about traditions. Since it’s a topic I’m very fond of, I’d like to contribute to your blog, too, if I may.
    Happy Easter.

    I suppose he’s the first one!
    CONGRATULATION to him!!!

    Wow, congrats, Philip! That’s really wonderful!
    I want to encourage all our partners to apply for the Quality Label. I will do the same next week.

    Dear all,

    We have a new partner school in our project and at the same time another country represented in the project. The name of the new teacher is Nihan Kandiş and he is a representative of Üzümlü Şehit Mehmet Primary School from Beysehir, region Konya (Turkey).
    Welcome, Nihan! You will find an online classroom and family as here. I hope this project will be as rewarding for you as it has been for all of us.
    All the best,

    Hi, I stumbled upon this blog when looking for European traditions.
    What a great project!
    I’m a librarian at a university, so I really appreciate the effort you put in this. Way to go! 🙂

    A great initiative! To gather here a lot of European traditions, I think you are the first to initiate it.
