On the first day our hosts showed us the school. We were welcomed by the teachers and students of this institution and the headmastress welcomed us and introduced us to the history of the school.WeI were shown some artistic moments presented by the students of primary school and a group of high school students; then visited the classrooms, observing how they teach in this school. All visitors were integrated within classes. This was a very good way for many students to understand how to learn in other European countries. We also participation to various workshops (presentation of each group by creating a poster that was displayed on one of the halls, sports activities, making bracelets with traditional motifs in Latvia). In the afternoon we visited the Chocolate Factory where we had the opportunity to prepare our own chocolates. At the end of the day we went to the Palace of Culture in Riga, a special building in terms of architecture, where we saw a professional dance group dancing (Bitite). Before departure, a few members of this group taught us some of their dances. The next day, we visited Old Town Riga (Vecriga) with a guide who explained the history of places and their significance. Then we visited the Motor and Wars Museum. On the third day our learning activities took place near the town of Riga, Sigulda. We were involved in discovering the beautiful area in which many traditions, arts and crafts still exist. The place is also known for winter sports. Here we visited a medieval castle and the guide introduced us to local legends and folk tales. Near the castle we went into a craft center. We were shown the techniques and symbols used in making traditional objects (for the most part, adequate household wooden objects) and participated to a workshop where we learned how to make sticks/canes, traditional symbols of the village. On the fourth day, we visited Riga City Council. A guide showed us the building, then we met a representative of Conisliului to whom we had the opportunity to ask questions about the functioning and organization of the institution. Since Polish delegation was leaving a day earlier, here we were given certificates of participation in project meetings by the school principal host. Next we visited the National Library in Riga, a new building with interesting exhibits impressive; this visit cultivated the students’ desire to go to university for further training.

In the second part of the day we had held the final conference of the visit and a festive meal where each group presented folk dances and national songs. 
Participation in learning activities in Latvia had a major impact on all students. They were in direct contact with various elements of Latvian culture, which contributed to the acquisition of knowledge related to the host culture, encouraging also intercultural dialogue so that students can learn together in a European context represented by tolerance, diversity and mutual respect in contact with another culture. Students benefited from innovative education practice, making themselves an important human resource in promoting their future. Participating teachers at the meeting said the project had an impact on their attitude in relation to their educational activity. Collaboration with teachers from other countries gave them the opportunity to connect to the new European trends in education. Both students and teachers improved their communication, linguistic and digital skills; they also developed their teamwork spirit, adaptability to new situations, analytical ability and leadership skills. 
After our returning ,we made an exhibition presenting these learning activities in Riga. Both students and teachers had special meetings with their coleagues where they shared their experiences.

Preparations for the 2nd Learning Activity of ‘Treasure in Language”, Erasmus+ project took place in a month before the groups arrival.
-The coordinating school made practical arrangements, such as booking the hotel, preparing the programme, providing information on how to arrive to the school etc.
-Participants made travel arrangements: booking flights, buying insurance, prepared all the necessary information for the meeting. 

The 2nd Learning Activity of “Treasure in Language”, Erasmus+ project took place over five days, excepting the arrival and departure days, taking the form of laboratories/workshops combined with study visits.
This meeting included a visit to the school, interesting learning activities in the host school, as well as study trips, due to the fact that most of the participants arrived in Krakow. So, our hosts took advantage of this and gave us the opportunity to visit Krakow ( Poland’s second largest city and the country’s main tourist destination; the city remains the culture capital of Poland and its seven universities and nearly twenty other institutions of higher learning make Krakow the country’s principal center of science and education) and Zakopane (a town which lies in the southern part of the Podhale region at the foot of the Tatra Mountains; it is a center of Góral culture and is known informally as "the winter capital of Poland”; it is a popular destination for mountaineering, skiing and qualified tourism; the Zakopane Style of Architecture is an architectural mode inspired by the regional art of Poland’s highland region known as Podhale; drawing on the motifs and traditions in the buildings of the Carpathian Mountains, the style was pioneered by Stanislaw Witkiewicz and is now considered a core tradition of the Góral people) on our way to Sanok. Located on the San River, Sanok lies below the Carpathian Mountains.The town's history goes back almost 1000 years when it was part of a medieval trade route. The Museum of Folk Architecture as well as the refurbished Sanok Castle and Old Town were shown to us in order to give us clear hints about that.
The workshops and trips helped attendees gained high-quality education under Erasmus+ programme. The workshops were also designed to emphasise the importance of student-centred learning as a key focus in all Erasmus+ projects. The sights seen during these days helped both students and teachers make connection and gain historical and cultural knowledge of Poland, as well as improve their language skill. All activities - visits and laboratories, speaking in English with other people from other cultures - surely lead to improved student achievement using outcomes that matter to their future success. 
Dissemination of the project products has been discussed with all partners. We decided to use the following:
*placing photos, impressions in the project website in English and school websites in native languages
* placing photos in schools corridors
* informing the local authorities / school authorities colleagues/ students / parents about the project and its progress 
All partners confirmed once again their consent on equally contribution to the project website and keeping the project participants up-to-date with tasks and activities.

Happy Easter
