In Turkey

At the end of September, 3 students from III MH class (Mateusz Barteczko, Daniel Czerwik and Adam Popek) along with two teachers (Mirosław Michalewski and Krzysztof Gajda) took part in a second visit to Turkey. It was organised within the Leonadro da Vinci "Building the common future" program. 


Contrary to the February visit, the trip went well, with no complications. Early departure from Poland, flight from Prague via Istanbul and shortly before eight (local time), at the airport, we met the Turkish coordinator Yakup Yuksel and the English language teacher Ergun Ikiz.

 
Next day we met the new principal of our partner school. During the trip around the school, our students got to know the conditions their friends from Kaiseri learn in. After that, students went to see the historic town centre while the teachers worked on the project realisation.
 
During the following days we were able to see the equipment used in technical and textile workshops, computer and chemistry classrooms. There, the students produce cleaning chemicals for hospitals and other institutions to gain financial means for additional equipment for the classrooms. We also had time to play a basketball game with our hosts.

A very interesting part of our trip was a visit to a multimedia town museum and a sports arena where, a few weeks earlier, the basketball World Championships had been held. It is the place where NBA stars like Luis Scola, Carlos Delfino from Argentina or Nenad Krstić from Serbia played. We also saw the conference hall and other gyms in the arena.
 
That was not the end of our sport attractions. On Sunday afternoon, in the modern Kayseri stadium we saw a Turkish league game between Kayserspor and Trabzonspor. We were hoping to see Arkadiusz Głowacki in the guests team but unfortunately he was not given the opportunity to play.
 
Our stay in Kayseri was concluded with an official dinner where we were presented with certificates. Earlier that day we visited a factory producing LPG tanks that are also installed in Polish cars. One of the co-owners, who was our guide, explained the entire production process and answered our all questions.
 
That was the last meeting in Turkey within our project. Our students returned to Poland full of new experiences concerning life of Turkish students and schools.
