Meeting with students in Pultusk

Thursday, 21st May, with Ola from the office to Warsaw and Ania a volunteer of SPW, we went to a high school of Pultusk to speak about the tasks of our association and workcamps.

We had pleasure to meet six different classes to present them our association and what a workcamp is.

                                                                        In front of the high school of Pultusk.

Many thanks to the director of the high school and the teachers for the time spent with us.

And thank you, dear students, for your attention. ;) 

Workcamp in Janowice Wielkie

One of the important activities of FIYE in Pultusk is the promotion of workcamps.

Leading the workcamps it’s one of my works during the EVS.

My first workcamp took place in South of Poland in Janowice Wielkie during two weeks from 21th May to 3rd June.

With another leader, Zuzana who come from Slovakia for an EVS in the SPW in Warsaw, we led and worked with three girls - volunteers from Canada, France and South Korea.

                                                   Caroline, Mathilde and Soo Kyang in front of
                                                                           the sanatorium where we worked.    

What is really important it's to work in "zen" atmosphere.

                                                     Soo Kyang give us a good example.

Thanks to our "personnal guide" who is also our "technical leader", Irek, we discovered all the beautiful landscape.

                                              Even if you want to hide you... we recognize you pan Irek!

Two things are very important during a workcamp: first you fell useful by your work and secondly you make new friends!

                                                               Soo Kyang, Mathilde, me and Caroline near a lake.

And you, Mathilde, what do you think about workcamp?

Schuman Parade

Like every year the Schuman Foundation participated at a big parade to promote Europe. This year, the parade took place the Saturday 12th May.

Unfortunately, it rained this day in WarsawL! And the Map Game-what we prepared about Europe-was to take place outside in tent… it was canceled!

Many people attended to this Parade despite the rain.

In the float of the Schuman Foundation, the party was really present with a DJ! It was very crazy and funny! Any people united by the sound music to celebrate Europe marched through the streets of the Old Town of Warsaw.

The SPW FIYE volunteers participated with happiness in this crazy atmosphere!

Me and Laura with our T-shirt of the association.

In spite of the bad weather and cancellation of the Map Game, I really enjoyed participating to this Parade. It allowed me to meet different volunteers and different people of a lot countries and I think this is one aim of such events.
