Events of the European Day of Languages

The Gateway to European Languages in João da Silva Correia School - S. João da Madeira _ Portugal

Celebration, 26.09.2018 - 06.10.2018, S. João da Madeira, Portugal

Our students were challenged to write their own poems, phrases, expresssions or borrow famous quotations that proved we, as humans, are much more protected and in peace when living bounded to Europe with its diversity of languages and culture.
With the help of parents they printed, and handpainted ribbons and pieces of cloth that were knotted at the school's front gates. There were also other messages written in strips of paper that were put in a mural in the main entrance of the school.
The heart of this celebration was a wind chime made to bring us luck and show the world we need winds of change to live together.
