After a warm welcoming at the school, with all the students and the teachers we took a tour at the school to learn more about the culture.

As one of the subjects of the meeting was racial stereotypes, we paid a visit to Buzescu ( a Gipsy village)to learn more about the Gipsy culture, we visited a house and had the opportunity to see the luxurious way of living of the Gipsies. After that we went to Alexandria for another visit to a gipsy district. As a result of this visit we had the opportunity to understand and to welcome our differences.
We also made presentations about the methods we apply in order to combat with the stereotyping and discrimination issue. Then the students joined some sports activities, in the meantime the teachers gathered for a meeting to plan the activities in the next meeting.
After completing the necessary documentation like evaluations of the meeting, Europass and video diaries, we got our certificates of the meeting.
