The final meeting of our project took place in May.
It’s been a wonderful three years. Viva Erasmus!!!
The results of the photography competition we held in Karlskrona are in. Each school submitted three photographic images with a “Nature” theme, and they were printed out and displayed at school during the short-term exchange to Sweden. View all the images by clicking here. Everyone voted using Google Forms for their favourite photo in each of eight categories, and one photograph in particular won over the hearts and minds and aesthetic sensibilities of the voting participants. Lina Georg’s photograph received most votes in each of the following categories:
- Quality of image
- Emotional impact
- Overall best picture
Two other photographs won the categories of Colour and Best Caption.
Here’s a little memento from Sweden that our friends in Slovenia created.

In May four Learners from Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan went to Poland to represent our school in the latest project meeting of All For A Greener Europe.
The first destinations were Sopot and Gdansk. We saw Europe’s longest pier in Sopot.
It was in these two wonderful places that the fun began because our learners met the learners from the project partners (Bremen, Horjul, La Spezia, Karlskrona and Bydgoszcz) for the first time.
The Polish hosts took our large group on a wonderful tour of the city and shipyards for their first proper taste of Polish culture.
After a couple of days we all moved onto the city of Bydgoszcz, the home of our host’s secondary school.
Almost as soon as the learners arrived they were picked up by their host families. Our learners stayed with their hosts for three nights to get a real taste of Polska. Everyone was lucky enough to meet the Vice Mayor of Bydgoszcz. Our learners presented the Vice Mayor with a gift of Welsh Cakes and she told them that she really enjoyed them.
All four of our learners were able to make new friends from many different countries. It was a trip they will never forget.
In June some year 9 learners went to Bodnant Gardens to take photographs of the botanical gardens for one of All For A Greener Europe’s forthcoming projects.
