Last mobility in France

This was the last step of our wonderful Inclusion project.

All the countries met in Guérande, on the southwest Britany coast of France to take part in the last mobility which dealt with Games.

What a wonderful week we had together under sun and warmth.

The first day was devoted to games to get to know each other better and then to the visit of the salt marshes. Students and teachers learned how sea salt is harvested in an ancestral way.

The second day was devoted to visiting Nantes, its historical attractions: the castle of the Duchess Anne, the medieval quarter, the more modern part of the city, up to the “Machines de l’île” where the youngest as well as the more mature had the joy of meeting the elephant.

Wednesday, after the first workshops, the whole group was able to go to Brière to discover the specificity of thatched roofs, and an extraordinary ecosystem by taking a ride in the flat-bottomed boats called “Chalands”.

On Thursday, a great escape game on the medieval history of the city of Guérande was offered to the group. The students liked it a lot! In the afternoon, other groups presented their workshops by introducing traditional games of their countries to the other members of the project.

In the evening, the college had organized a traditional dinner of “crêpes” and “galettes” (pancakes) followed by a karaoke evening where young and old had a lot of fun singing and dancing the songs of their country and introducing them to others.

It’s already the last day of this beautiful program which will end at Le Croisic by setting off to discover the marine world at the Océarium. Finally, France made everyone play traditional Breton games in the pretty town of Pouliguen.

The groups left France all along the week-end, tired but happy and undoubtedly richer from all the encounters made. The French families who welcomed the students were sad to say goodbye to the young people who already become a part of the family.

This project will have really been a success through all the exchanges, the discoveries, the knowledge that it will have brought. What is certain is that friendships have been created which are the promise of new encounters to come and future joint Erasmus projects.
