Project Comenius under the slogan,,Our History our Pride and Strength” began in year Everyone wondered about whether our project will be accepted by the European Union. Fortunately, we received a chance to cooperate with other countries. In this project participated the best schools in the world…
Gimnazjum Numer 3 w Promniku im. H. Sienkiewicza Gimnazjum nr 3 is located in Promnik village in a small commune Strawczyn in Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship. The area is mostly dominated by agriculture and is one of the poorest regions of Poland with a high level of unemployment. There are about 100 teenagers studying in our school at the moment and some of them come from disadvantaged socio-economic families.
NEDIM ÖKMEN ANADOLU ÖĞRETMEN LİSESİ The school is situated in Kilis, a small border city in the south east of Turkey. It is a boarding school in which more than 550 students, majority of whom are girls, are educated. The school also has a kindergarten with two classes of 40 students aged 5-6. The boarding students stay at the dormitory of the school and visit their families once in one or two months in order that their success of lessons are not affected negatively.
