Students from the Kaland Skole in Bergen (Norway), the Giacomo Ferrari Institute in Parma (Italy) and the Lugnviksskolan in Östersund (Sweden) have been visiting, from June 3 to 9, the city of Dénia, welcomed by families and students of the public school Pou de la Muntanya.
The school exchange, framed within the Erasmus + #TastingSchools project, which coordinates the school from Dénia, is the last of the ten training and coordination mobility programs programmed on the project. 72 students and 46 teachers have been able to participate in the different training trips carried out over these two years, as well as know and learn in the four schools, all of them belonging to Creative Cities of Gatronomy declared by UNESCO.
During their stay in Dénia, they have been able to enjoy a complete training program, which has allowed them to carry out activities in the school, visiting the marine reserve of Cap de Sant Antoni by catamaran, participating in a kitchen workshop at Samaruc restaurant (with chefs Ismael Bilbao and Federico Guajardo) learning the “Dansà de Dénia” or visiting the city of València (both gothic monuments and the City of Arts and Sciences).
Also, the Mayor of Dénia, Vicent Grimalt, and the Education Councilor, Rafa Carrió, received the group of students and their teachers, giving way to the visit to the city offered by technicians from the office of Dénia Creative City. This was a good time to get to know the Market, the cherry sample offered there, and places such as the Toy Museum or the Ethnological Museum.
A special mention deserves the nine families that hosted the students. A whole week of experiences where you could visit the beaches, the Montgó Natural Park or the Castle and where the ties that unite the four cities were greatly narrowed.
To finish the week, the school’s end event went ahead to offer a taste of our culture to the students visiting, and to dance with the Valencian folk group “Tres fan Ball”. A luxury finish for an unforgettable week.
