I am glad to announce that our project is growing in recognition as Lithuania has received the eTwinning Quality Label. This way we will get an European Quality Label, which is one more reason to keep up the good work next school year.
All our students will be very pleased with this good news.
Thank you all.

I know that there were some difficulties with our project and that we didn't achieve everything we would like to.
But, there is still time to catch up. Next school year will be crucial for the presentation of the final results of the project.
I wish you all and your students a relaxing summer and all the best with your personal and professional goals.
From Portugal. António

They have been quite busy with a major theater project and the recording of a CD, which we hope to receive soon.
You can read about us at the eTwinning forum.
We are working on a presentation of our country and culture.
It has been very interesting to read your presentations and learn about your schools and culture- very motivating for the children!

Slovenia has two major towns. Ljubljana is our capital city and Maribor is the place where we have our music school situated.
Our school is something special because we all are musicians and we love music. This builds a strong bond between us. The name of our school is SREDNJA GLASBENA IN BALETNA ŠOLA MARIBOR. Our students are generally 6-18 years old, and we run an art gymnasium for those who are preparing for university studies. They regularly perform with our orchestras, participate and experience success in both national and internationalcompetitions, and are contracted for performances outside of school.
We also host masterclasses that are conducted by music teachers from around Europe. Apart from instrumental classes, we also teach ballet and singing.
Life on our school its very different from normal schools. We have to practice our instruments all the time and so we spent a lot of our time in the school. All of the students have there own teacher who teaches them how to play there instrument and how to create music.
We are looking forward to make this project come true. We will tell you all about our traditions and will get to know yours.

•We make preparations for this festival in advance - we need to make masks! (1)
•Shrove Tuesday is a very old festival known in all Europe. The main thing is to chase away winter and to encourage spring to set in. (8, 9)
We enjoy being at the museum. There are lots of masks here! How interesting is to try them on, to imagine how people celebrated this festival 50 years ago! (10, 11)
•And… we’re waiting for slightly lingered SPRING!

As our group is almost complete, I think that we should decide how we are going to develop the project. My proposal is this:
* From January to June 2008
Let’s get to know each other: all the participant schools are going to prepare a small presentation of the group, the school, the location and country – till the end of February.
Our traditions: all the participant schools are going to prepare a presentation about their national traditions in what concerns dances and songs – till the end of April.
Clothes and instruments – all the participant schools are going to prepare a presentation about the traditional clothes and instruments that are used in their countries.
* From September 2008 to May 2009
All the participant schools are going to choose 2 traditional songs and record them - They’ll create audio files and have them ready till the end of December.
All the participant schools are going to rehearse, and record on Video, 2 traditional dances till the end of April.
All the work will be gathered in a digital support and shared amongst the participant schools.
This is just a group of ideas. We have a forum on eTwinning to discuss the way we want to develop our project. I’m counting on you. See you soon.
