The curious students, even during the class learned the human body organs in both their language, Macedonian, and in the language of their friends and neighbors, Albanian.

The students from the “7 Marsi” school proudly bragged about the activities implemented in the computer science class, in which they learned words in Albanian through the animations prepared by the teacher.

Painting, English language quiz, football matches, preparation of theatrical performances and outings… These were just a few of the activities of the partner schools “7 Marsi” and “Goce Delchev“ from Brvenica that were implemented by the students of Macedonian, Albanian and Roma ethnic background.

At the promotional event, the students from the three schools from the Municipality of Brvenica said that they will continue with new activities, because the everyday cooperation and interaction enables them to come closer together with their peers from different ethnic backgrounds, but also to learn more about their culture and tradition.
