are the Vocational schools, which educate students in gastronomy ,
commerce and tourism subjects. Our students are provided with
general education and theoretical gastronomy knowledge.
The main thematic areas of the
project are cuisine, culinary and nutritional customs of the
participating countries, which give the particular “taste” that
makes a country unique.
Our target is to try and find out, through the various activities
and exchanges, these elements which make us all citizens of a much
wider “Home”, despite our differences.
Having in mind the wealth of our
countries tradition, culture, diversity of national cuisine,
increase of culinary tasks, awareness of healthy lifestyle and
closely connected nutrition habits which are our in countries we
have decided to create the project “Life is
Life is like a meal, we take from
it what is delicious, fresh, what looks nice but we also sometimes
take what is spicy, stale or even bitter.
We have notice that in each human field we can find some equivalents
related to the cuisine.
Cuisine is a traveling
through different tastes and flavour. We want to set off on a
journey and add some unknown smells of Poland, Turkey, Belgium,
Portugal, Italy and Bulgaria.
WHY DO WE ALL NEED THIS PROJECT?
We are the only schools of
this kind in our towns and nearby towns and we need to draw
models and cooperate with schools with the same gastronomy
specializations in order to become better and better.
The best form of learning the
profession is the mobility between schools which opens student’s
minds and create better conditions to learn.
Meeting new people motivates
students to present themselves as good as it is possible and to
reaching new aims.
In our schools we teach
students who don’t have any problems in learning but we also
teach students who have some difficulties in learning. Creating
the project we want to give both groups of students the same
opportunities to take part in it and to form it adding to the
project what is unique.
We want to equalize
educational opportunities of the youth from villages and cities
through entrusting them the positions of the leaders of groups
responsible for doing particular tasks connected with the
We would like to encourage and
make students interested in new technologies: computer,
Taking part in the project
will overcome their shyness resulting from the situations, form
the attitude of tolerance; students through contact with pupils
from other countries learn how to be tolerant of different
culture, customs, race, religion;
Students with specific skills
in gastronomy subjects will have a chance to develop their
talents through active participation in project’s task:
preparing dishes, meeting with popular cooks and specialists;
Students with specific
artistic skills will be able to expand their talent in by
creating paintings, galleries, guides in the project;
Students with specific
language skills will have a chance to broaden their language by
writing letters, e-mails, meeting, talking by phone or Internet
with friends from different countries;
Vocational education and
practical training in the field of gastronomy cannot take place
without being familiar with the historical and cultural context,
without getting to know European customs and traditions. We want
our students to have a chance to meet people who will be able to
tell them about their countries and lives.
