Capacity Development in Basic Education and PEN closed successfully the Blackboard Competition with many celebrations, performances and awards.
It was our pleasure to have Mr.Shyqiri Bytyqi, Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Christian Heldt, Ambassador of Germany in Kosovo, officials from 12 municipal directorates of education, school directors and teachers from 117 winning schools. Our special guests were the children of these schools who stole the show with impressive performances.
The winning schools of this project were awarded with a total of 1300 German foldable blackboards and wall paint, to improve the classroom through a joint activity of students, parents and teachers.
“This is a very good practice”, said Ambassador Heldt, “I remember very well when I participated in the painting the classroom together with parents to make a better classroom for us. This is very important for children because at this age they witness that success can be achieved by doing a joint work. This a very important segment, considering that we just celebrated the 10th anniversary of Kosovo’s independence”.
In the end, the organizers thanked all the people that made this happen.
The project was organized within the “Campaign for Better Education in Kosovo”.
