During our tour, some students improvise a song for us in the Music class.

We spend Tuesday at school. First thing we do is complete our countries presentations:

Afterwards we choose our logo: each school celebrated the logo competition during December 2017 and bring two logos. Between the ten logos presented, three teachers and four students per country voted to select the logo that will represent our project from now on. Thank you to Javier Reyes, Julia Martín and Mario Cruz for participating in the selection and organization of logo competition in Spain.

And the winner is...

Later, we presented the posters and video footage of Istanbul. Great job of students and teachers from the five countries!

Just before the break, job shadowing for teachers. Some Students attended an English lesson with Alejandro Díaz, some others went to the Chemistry Lab, with Félix Rodríguez...

And some others went to Music and Arts class with Mercedes Martínez and Álvaro Cedrés.
