16 students and 12 teachers from Greece, Poland, Slovenia and Turkey spent a week in Lauterhofen. Here are the set goals for the week:
Main task: To create a common "Keeping balance" competition
The cooperation in the pre-run of this meeting consisted mainly of putting together questions for the common board game. The board itself was designed and given into print as well as the playing cards, so on the first day of the short-term exchange students could play the game ith their home-made pawns in class.
Activities: preparing tasks for teams, discovering ourselves- countries presentations, local trips to know the local culture and traditions, team building games, the German language lessons and practice, lessons observations (for teachers), practising outdoor games: kinball, volleyball, creating posters (using ICT) inviting to the final competition, Students debate: Computer games vs Sport- looking for the best way of spending free time.
On that first day there was also a big reception of the Erasmus guests that the whole school with students, teachers and parents, local mayors, school administratives and the local press and other guests attended.
Time to liaise and get to know each other better gave the walk to a local cave. Bernhard Dürr, the head of Lauterhofen gave an expert guided tour and informed the group about the history and stone formations of the König-Otto-Tropfsteinhöhle.
Wednesday focussed on team sports and gave inspiration with regards to how to spend your free-time. On this sports day teams were formed. Each team consisted of about 10 students across all ages, from 6 to 16, and they competed in various tasks. Some of the tasks were classical sports exercises, other were a bit more unusual, for example throwing teabags or cycling as slowly as possible. They were all great fun! Of course the teachers formed one team, too and clearly used some strategic thinking.
In the evening guests and hosts met once more for a cultural evening, where (not only) Bavarian dances were taught and an international buffet was laid out.
Other activities included a trip to Nuremberg, with a lecture of contemporary history in the Dokuzentrum Reichsparteitagsgelände and a walk in the medieval parts of the city; a trip to Regensburg with its Roman roots and a boat trip through the pristine valley of the Danube to Kloster Weltenburg. A walk to the Lauterhofen Golf Club rounded the week off and everybody was sad that the week had gone by so quickly!
