Reunião transnacional em Sófia

O Agrupamento de Escolas Fernão do Pó esteve presente na Bulgária para participar na terceira reunião transnacional do projeto Erasmus+ “EUROPEAN OLYMPICS”, a qual teve lugar de 1 a 5 de outubro na cidade de Sófia.
A comitiva que contou com 7 alunos do Agrupamento de Escolas Fernão do Pó deslocou-se à Bulgária para continuar a trabalhar com as escolas parceiras oriundas de Espanha, Eslovénia e Bulgária em atividades que visam mobilizar os alunos para os ideais olímpicos de RESPEITO, AMIZADE E EXCELÊNCIA. De acordo com os objetivos deste projeto, os valores olímpicos devem orientar todas as atividades do dia-a-dia de forma a que estes jovens, que em breve serão adultos, consigam ser melhores cidadãos e mais conscientes dos seus deveres para com o outro.
Durante os 5 dias em que foram acolhidos em casa de alunos de uma Escola Secundária de Sófia, os alunos portugueses puderam experienciar a rotina real da família búlgara que os hospedou. Conhecer outras realidades e condições de vida são experiências transformadoras para muitos dos alunos envolvidos e devem contribuir de forma decisiva para a sua formação, sendo este um dos objetivos primordiais subjacentes a todos estes projetos Europeus  - o acréscimo do respeito pelo outro e pela diferença.
Ao longo da semana os alunos realizaram atividades na escola de acolhimento e tiveram ainda a oportunidade de realizar diversas atividades culturais, nas quais se incluíram as visitas guiadas a Sófia e a Plovdiv, cidade que será a capital europeia da cultura em 2019.
Um dos pontos altos do encontro foi a visita à escola de dois campeões olímpicos de muito prestígio - Iordan Iovtchev, ginasta búlgaro que participou em 6 edições dos Jogos Olímpicos e  a atleta de Voleibol Verka Stoianova, medalha de bronze nos jogos de Moscovo em 1980. 
O quarto e último encontro deste projeto realiza-se em março de 2019 em Badajoz onde uma vez mais se reunirão todos os parceiros: Portugal, Espanha, Bulgária e Eslovénia. Nesta reunião final serão apresentados os produtos finais do projeto, no qual se inclui um Guia de Comportamento Olímpico, tarefa a cargo da escola portuguesa.

SUNDAY

Sunday, the most awaited day for the whole Portuguese group, we were all so eager to get to know a new country and stay at the home of our Bulgarian colleagues.
The flight was tiring because we didn’t sleep and the trip took nine hours. We had a stopover in Amsterdam, when we arrived in Bulgaria it was already 2 pm, it was a very long flight but it was worth it. Seeing the bulgarian group waiting for us was so exciting, getting to know our colleagues for the first time and having the first impression with everyone was an unforgettable moment, after the meeting with our colleagues we got to know their family and after this each one of us went to the house of his host.

Monday was our first day at the school and we had to communicate with new people from all the countries in the project.  Early in the morning, in the school, we had a welcome reception by Headmistress and Bulgarian teachers, then some of Bulgarian students made to all the students in the project an Artistic project, some people danced and some people sang for us, it was very interesting and beautiful to see. After the lunch, we left the school and we went to the center of Sofia to have a guided tour in the city, there we saw some of the most important monuments and learned a few things about the story of Bulgaria.

On tuesday, we went to Plovdiv, the old town of Plovdiv  was 2h away from Sofia, but it was worth it! We visited the Ethnographic museum, the amphitheater and St. Constatine and Helena Church and also the Balanov house. All of this in the morning, it was very fun and we saw the amazing old town of Plovdiv, it's super pretty! In the afternoon part we had some free time to see the new part of Plovdiv, so I had lunch with my friends and we visited all the shops.  We bought some fun stuff and also some bulgarian souvenirs for our friends and family at home. After all the fun in Plovdiv we went to the bus and went home. I really liked the experience and all of the erasmus experience was amazing!

After that we lunched in school a typical bulgarian dish, and we were supposed to go to an adventure park named "Kokolandia" but we had a free afternoon instead, which we spent with erasmus people in a coffee, knowing each other and playing games. In the evening we went to diner in the school with various bulgarian dishes. I really enjoyed being with persons from different countries and get to know them, my erasmus experience was fantastic and I definitly look forward to repeat that experience.

SATURDAY

The last day! Our hosts drove us to the Sofia airport. When we arrived at the airport we all had a mix of emotions, happiness to go home to our things and family and at the same time  sadness to leave our friends from Bulgaria, people with whom we lived an incredible week, with whom we created strong friendships .
We have learned a lot of things that we had no idea from Bulgaria, for example about food and about their way of being. It was an unforgettable experience, full of adventures, of fears and full of new friendships.
