New project: Ukraine Georgia

New project: Ukraine Georgia

Last week was interesting and rich in events, meetings and new impressions. Scandinavian Gymnasium hosted the guests not from restrained Scandinavia but from sunny Georgia. The students and teachers from the Opiza school in the city of Tbilisi visited us.  Such project is unique indeed; in fact this is the first visit of Georgian pupils to Kyiv and to our gymnasium. Fifteen Georgian students lived in our students families and enjoyed their   hospitality and candor, got acquainted with Ukrainian culture and traditions.

First, a meeting with the students of the gymnasium was held at the EuroClub where our guests learnt about peculiarities of education in the capital of Ukraine. For the people of the European culture Georgia is the country where the Argonauts stole the Golden Fleece. But for us the heritage of historical tradition is more valuable as well as the fact that a country with a millennial culture has become a standard of the young democracy oriented at the world values.

The Ukrainian students could see for their own eyes that their Georgian coevals are merry, kind-hearted, open, benevolent, and ready for sincere intercourse, partnership and friendship.

The city tour and visits to the Lavra, to the Zoo, to the Circus, the Opera and the national museum in Pyrogovo were extremely interesting. 

But the most interesting were the excursions to the Chornobyl museum, the Great Patriotic war museum, the Water Information Center.  The children also invited by Geli Dumbadze', the Consul of Georgia in Ukraine to visit the Embassy of Georgia and felt themselves at home singing their national anthem.

To see the snow-covered peaks of the Caucasus, the black sea subtropics, emerald vineyards, to go deep into the in the world of Georgian nature, culture and ethnography and to come home with unforgettable impressions thats what the students of Scandinavian Gymnasium are looking forward to in 2011 while visiting Tbilisi in May.

Welcome to Georgia! said the Georgian children making their farewells. We are grateful to the families which put their hearts and souls into hospitably receiving the children from Tbilisi.
