The Augusta-Bender-Schule hosts the first Erasmus+ Project Meeting and welcomes students from Poland and Italy. They arrived on April 24th and will live in German host families until April 30th. The students work together in the Erasmus+ Project “School Company Union: Students get in touch with local food production companies”.

On Monday morning all schools presented their food production to each other. The German students made Mozzarella, the Italian students made Caprino and the Polish students made Yoghurt. Afterwards everyone was allowed to try samples.

Then they were divided in groups for the workshops. The press group had to interview all the other groups. These are the results of the interviews:

The members of the ChemSketch Workshop” are learning about the ChemSketch program which is a technical chemistry program. They will build chemical structures in ChemSketch programme which are connected to their practical food production and add them to their presentations. These are the members of this group: Shana Fahr, Davide Zavaglio, Elena Faccetti, Lea Wierz, Daria Rakowska, Loreen Pfleger, Tomasz Kasprowicz, Henning Wolf, Carolin Frey, Kristin Brech, Lisa Matzkies, Hannah Schnabel, Corina Daum.

The members of the “Wordle Workshop” had a lot of fun in their group. The task they had to do was to collect different words (from Italian, German, English, Polish). The only condition was: The words have to get together with the project. They need to collect these words for pictures and these pictures will be on the different school websites and so it can be a good memory of our time, our work and the ideas we had together in this project in Germany. Members of the Wordle Group were: Amy Müller , Leah Passdorfer, Frieda Siefert, Sofia Zuccelli, Andrzej Filocha and Paola Morandi.

The “Logo Workshop” wants to create a logo, that is simple and shows essential symbols like the colors of the Polish, Italian and German flags. They also have the idea to draw the European flag on the logo. One of the similarities of the groups from Poland, Italy and Germany is that we all made self-made food and ate it together, so there might also be a knife and fork at the logo. We will see the results in a few days. Let’s keep it a surprise! The members of this Workshop were: Elena Faccetti, Lara Premi, Natalia Gawel, Weronika Szczepaniak, Kim Fritz, Amelie Teicher, Simon Nöcker, Julia Hedrich, Alexander Schmitt.

The workshop „Glossary 1“ consist of :Julia Adam, Anika Haas, Marie Kuchar, Hannah Jost, Sarah Berjer, Hubert Rucinski, Oliwia Felska and Giancarlo Pini and their teacher Mr. Michal Tulisziewski. This group works on the translation from English phrases into German, Polish and Italian. They also talk about how to survive in other countries in a polite way. They had a lot of fun with spelling out the different words in the different languages. The students chose the workshop because they wanted to get in touch with other students and their languages and especially because they were curious about expressions in different languages.

The workshop “Glossary 2” has a very similar project. The responsible teacher of the group, Lara Rossi, said that they were about to make a glossary using daily sentences in Italian, English, Polish and German, like ‘Grazie’ – ‘Danke’ – ‘Dziękuję’ – ‘Thanks’. After that they had to do a ‘role-play’ with the words used. We wanted to know their impressions about the “shining star game”. Tomasz talked first and said that they found it difficult to find what makes them different. The workshop “Glossary 2” consists of Aileen Piecha, Jennifer Maurer, Doreen Schäfer, Michele Portesani, Wiktoria Gielaciak, Anna Münch, Michele Kunzmann and Tomasz Szymanski.

7 students are part of the workshop “Songs”: Alessandro Beati, Anne-Carin Gebele, Weronika Krol, Jonas Marmulla, Attilio Rappaccioli, David Schwarzer and Maciej Wysocki and the teacher, Mrs. Sara Ardigo. Their aim is to write and produce a song about the project and the time, they are spending in Germany and about the time they will spend in Italy and Poland. With a lot of know-how which they already brought to the workshop, they want their song to be a big success. The different members including the teacher have one thing in common: Their favourite thing to do is music and they chose the workshop because they wanted to explore the different views in making music. Everyone is listening to music but not everyone feels the same and the workshop can show how the students in different countries think about music. And maybe music can bring the countries a little bit closer.
