Feel it through the Family. The last meeting in May 2017 in Yeşilköy, Hatay, Turkey. 

Before the meeting children thought about their families and their relationships. What are the feelings between family members? How does being part of a family make them feel? How does a family work together? Schools prepared a range of presentations. Some children made films about their own family, others made more general presentations.

Children drew family trees to show the extent of their family.

All of these presentations were shown during the meeting. Visitors were shown around other schools as well as the host school. This showed a family of schools who all work together and cooperate.

Other events at the meeting showed the culture of Turkey and a visit to a family home for a meal demonstrated the central place of the family in society.

The aims of the project were generally met during the meeting as all children across the partnership schools explored the family through a range of feelings. It was unfortunate that the international situation prevailing at the time made it difficult for two schools to attend and for others to bring children. But despite this problem the meeting was still a success and demonstrated the strong feeling of family and friendship that we had all built up during the project.
