Your school has a team of teachers trained in the concepts of interethnic integration and they are tirelessly sharing this knowledge with the entire staff”, said Major Dawn Nichols, the Deputy of the ODC at the U.S. Embassy in Skopje. The teachers shared their knowledge and skills with the attendees of the event also.
