Pilar, Cristina and Clara, teachers of CEIP Es Puig, have accompanied the students who have travelled to Romania during the week of June 3 to 10. Thus, they have been able to see firsthand Bucharest and different cities in Romania. The Magura-Buzau School, in the Buzau region, was another of the sites visited.
Clara Figuerola, the coordinator of the Erasmus + Program, told us “that the assessment of the Erasmus + Program has been very positive since all the students who have wanted have been able to do the Erasmus +”. Similarly, he added that “throughout the school year the centres have strengthened ties. They are centres with which we have been in contact for a long time”.
Among the curiosities of this trip, Clara highlights “Romania is very reminiscent of Mallorca 20 years ago. There is also a great influence of Communism”.
What country and region have you recently visited from CEIP Es Puig with the Erasmus + Program?
We visited Bucharest and the Magura-Buzau School.
We enjoyed two days in Bucharest and the rest in the region of Buzau.
Bucharest is the capital and most populated city of Romania, as well as its main industrial, commercial and cultural centre. It is located in the southeast of the country on the banks of the Dâmbovişa River.
The town of Buzău is the seat of Buzău County, in eastern Romania, in the historical region of Wallachia. It is located near the right bank of the Buzău River, between the southeastern curvature of the Carpathian Mountains and the lowlands of the Bărăgan Plain.
How have you seen the involvement of the students of CEIP Es Puig with the receiving centre?
We have been fortunate to get to know the day-to-day life of the students of the centre.
We were in a school. Our students have been with the family from Monday to Friday.
Living with the families has been the highlight and it is an experience that enriches them and I am sure they will remember it as a very enriching way to learn about other cultures.
Climate change has been the common thread of this visit.
What is the next trip and what do you expect from the Erasmus + Program?
The next trip will take place in September, or October to Ireland or Sweden. It will be the 5th-grade students
