The seven small cars and the locomotive represent the seven elementary schools and the municipality which helped in the implementation of the interethnic integration activities. The nursery seedlings represent a nursery of students on which the future of the municipality and the state will rest.

The flower garden in the schoolyard was a special product as part of which the system for drip irrigation was introduced, using rainwater for watering of the seedlings and the flowers planted in used car tires.


All the participants in the workshop were fully committed to the realization of the assigned tasks. The ideas came from all participants and they were transformed into finished products, which was one of the goals of the workshop. The socializing, cooperation, creativity, respect and learning of the languages ​​of the communities were inseparable decor of the wonderful atmosphere during the joint work.
