The second article was about the second transnational meeting in Germany and the third one about the transnational meeting at Fole Skola in Sweden.

From the beginning of the school year 2016-17 all the teachers were informed about the project, the different activities and about the deadlines of each activity. Informative meetings were held and presentations were done for teachers after each transnational meeting. In addition, teachers received by email presentations or videos about the project. Also, at the beginning of the school year, training sessions were held for teachers about Scratch programming environment.

At the end of the meeting the four students who traveled to Braga and their parents talked about their experience. At the end of the event, our headmaster Vassilios Panopoulos and the subheadmaster Thodoris Korakas presented the Erasmus Emotion song and all of us sang the song with them.
