2 Projects help students and teachers to gain and improve their skills not only in the subject related to the topic of the project but also encourage using ICT, strengthen relationships with the local community, other schools, governmental and non-governmental organisations. We implement short- term and long-term projects at school. Project method Svedasai, 2014

11 Our aim is to involve all students in this activity Svedasai, 2014

12 Students from every class have to weave 1-2 meters garlands, which are connected into one. Then students bring this long garland to the Vaizgantas monument. Decorating of Vaizgantas monument Svedasai, 2014

15 Project group members together with the local community tidied neglected historical places.

17 It was a long-term project which lasted for one semester. The aim of the project was to write down folk names of the plants in Svedasai dialect and create a dictionary. Svedasai, 2014

18 While collecting material, students were asking their mothers, grandparents, neighbours; they were also reading Vaizgantas works. Then they arranged words in alphabetical order, put stress on each word, wrote down the Latin name and illustrated with the photos. There are 86 words in the dictionary. Svedasai, 2014 Work process
