Little Prince Sculpture
SZKOŁA PODSTAWOWA IM. STEFANA zEROMSKIEGO
Warm welcome from the Educational Community. The Principal of the school and the project Coordinator opened the ceremony at the school's auditorium. Then, several groups of students performed traditional dances and songs that they had prepared just for the event.
25 students (5 from each country) and 11 teachers have gathered in Strawcyzn to make the first great cooperative work of the Project; A sculpture of "The Little Prince",
They began constructing the sculpture mixed by groups of different countries with different roles. Each group built a part of the sculpture using the papier maché technique.
A problem arose: the built parts did not dry out on time, and another kind of "sculpture" had to be made with polyspam.
The final exhibition was made with this sculpture, but it was possible to take advantage of the parts discarded to build the one that was originally intended.
This unexpected problem helped to overcome the situation and achieve the goal in another way.

On the last day, as a culmination of the meeting, an event was held to celebrate the EXHIBITION of the SCULPTURE of the PRINCE, in the hall of the school, all together with all the students and teachers who intervened in its construction.
At the school
In order to complete the sculpture of "The Little Prince" workshops were held connected with the tutorials that students had previously recorded before the meeting, based on different techniques.
These workshops, along with the construction of the sculpture, were both activities in which they had the opportunity to communicate and get to know each other in an environment of cooperation.
At Tokarnia Ethnographic park
This Ethnographic park actually is built by a sample of different rural constructions of last centuries. In one of them, the students held a very interesting activity based on a clothes doll workshop in which they made a "Little Prince" with fabrics.
Cooperating in Kielce
Kielce is the capital of Swietokrzyskie region. It is very close to Strawczyn, and all the students attended to a cooperative gymkana cooperative to know the city.
Each group was made up of students from different countries accompanied by two teachers. Each student had a role in the essential equipment to carry out the activity.
The objective was to get different parts of a puzzle solving different tests in a tour of the historical center. But above all ... have fun and get to know each other.
We spent a whole day in Krakow, old capital of Poland and one of the most important cities. There, we were separated in two groups and each of them went with a guide around the most important areas of the city. At the end of the tour, the students had the opportunity to find out their knowledges about the city by doing a final test.

Strawczyn is a beautiful village located in the region of Swietokrzyskie, southeast of Poland. It is situated in a rural area of about 1000 inhabitants, and has been the birthplace of the famous Polish writer Stefan Zeromskiego. One of its main attractions is a lake located on the outskirts, and of course, its friendly and quiet people.
