So far everything in this blog has been from the teacher's or the researcher's perspective. Let's see how the real main characters, the pupils experience it. I let two pupils, Rebecka and Molly, borrow the blog for a post.
So… getting up from bed at 3 Am just to go to the airport and fly one hour to Amsterdam, and then switch flight to one that goes to Warsaw. We asked ourselves ”is it really worth it?”
When we first got here we were a little bit negative because of the surrounding, that the house was situated in the woods and so far from the city. There was also a fence around the building and that made the whole thing more scary. To be in a different country without our family and also not a very good internet just made it worse.
But when we got some sleep on the first night, then the first day of working started and we got more and more positive as time went by. We started some workshops and we thought that it was really funny. We learned new things and we also started to communicate and get to know the other pupils that were here a little bit.
When we started to write the actual book then we really started to realize how big this project is and what we are a part of. So now when there are only two days left of work we start to feel a little bit sorry because we want to be here more, and get to know the others even more. So, then we asked ourselves again, ”is it really worth it?” and now our answers are yes. We think that it is worth it because our time here has been so great and funny, with nice pupils and nice teachers and we have had a barbecue and played volleyball and we think that it has been so much fun to get to do this.
