The meeting was held in Poland from 7th October to 13th October 2018. We hosted 6 teachers and 12 students from Bulgaria, Italy and Portugal. It was the third LTTA meeting, the previous ones were held in Italy and Bulgaria.
We were very happy to host participants from the schools which take part in the project.
We started with the official part, in which our headmaster and representatives of our local authorities took part.
